New rumors hint to powertrain options
According to a new report published by Car and Driver, the new C8 Corvette will have four engine options to choose from during its lifecycle. The first of which is an LT1 that is said to be making around 500hp. The second will be a 5.5liter V8, putting out 600hp that will house a flat plane crank allowing it to rev up to 9000rpm. The third option will be a twin turbocharged version of that V8, increasing horsepower to 800. Lastly there are reports of a 1,000hp AWD hybrid system, which will feature a 200hp electric engine. Hopefully its looks match these impressive engine options.
