See the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray hit 194 mph in top speed video.
The mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is pretty much a known quantity at this point. Even though it has yet to hit dealers (and won’t until later this year at the very earliest) we know power, weight, and performance.
That power being 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque from a 6.2-L LT2 V8 engine (when fitted with a performance exhaust, otherwise it’s 490 hp and 465 lb-ft). Power is routed through a fast-shifting 8-speed dual-clutch transmission to the rear wheels, and dry weight is a lithe 3,366 lbs.
Zero to sixty takes just 3 seconds flat. Top speed is 194 mph. We know this from a number of leaks and official announcements from Chevy, and all of it has been well received by fans and automotive enthusiasts. If this car is as good as all the numbers say it is, then we can easily see it taking over the sports car market in America.
But we haven’t really seen the Corvette in action. Sure, we’ve seen a bunch of test mules, but they sort of lose their shine when they break down and get carted away on the back of a mule. What we want is a production model running flat out on an open road.

The voice speaking off to the side sounds like Bowling Green plant manager Kai Spande, who revealed last week that the convertible Corvette will unveil in October. At the same event, Spande also showcased a video showing the 2020 Corvette hitting its top speed of 194 mph on the Papenburg test track in Germany.
Spande mentions that Chevy has used this test track to make their top speed runs for years and that calculating their top speed involves two runs in opposite directions--something that Bugatti didn’t do on their record-breaking 304-mph run. Chevy’s 194 mph ‘Vette might not be as impressive, but it’s still very fast and also vastly more affordable at $59,995.
