- Text originally from the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray's Wikipedia page.
The Chevrolet Corvette (C8) is the eighth generation of the Corvette sports car manufactured by American automobile manufacturer Chevrolet. Following several experimental CERV prototype vehicles, it is the first mid-engine Corvette since the model's introduction in 1953 (as well as GM's first production mid-engine sports car since the Pontiac Fiero was discontinued in 1988), differing from the traditional front-engine design. The C8 was announced in April 2019, and the coupe made its official debut on July 18, 2019 during a media event at the Kennedy Space Center (referencing its association with NASA) to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. The convertible made its debut in October 2019 alongside the racing version, the C8.R. Production officially began on February 3, 2020, delayed by the 2019 General Motors strike.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was added in the American Season Update as a high-end Class C car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 2,176 ( 35)
- rank: 2,381
- rank: 2,677 ( 15)
- rank: 2,937 ( 21)
- rank: 3,250 ( 28)
- rank: 3,787 ( 35)
The Corvette Stingray has a high top speed, average acceleration and mediocre nitro and handling at stock, and fast acceleration with stellar nitro and handling when maxed. With its well-rounded stats, it is a Class C king that is competitive in all multiplayer modes and events.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was added in Seventh Anniversary Update as a high-end Class B car with the following rank statistics:
Performance & usage
At stock, the Corvette Stingray has good drifting, handling, nitro efficiency, but mediocre acceleration. As a Festival car, the Corvette Stingray has very poor performance in respect to its rank until it reaches the full-PRO upgrade level.
Similar to other Class B festival cars, the Corvette Stingray's top speed allows for some utility in multiplayer when at full-PRO with a Tuning Kit, but it cannot compete with the acceleration of the Infiniti Project Black S Special Edition or the nitro efficiency, drifting radius, and handling of the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition.
Price and Availability
The Corvette Stingray is a reward for reaching Tier 8 with the Premium upgrade in the Bugatti Chiron Sport 110 Ans Festival. Players who already had the car would win 7x Bugatti Chiron Sport 110 Ans Kit instead.
