[VIDEO] Watch the Speedometer as the 2020 Corvette Stingray Hits 100 MPH from a Standing Start


Here’s another staff member from Road & Track who shared a video of the 2020 Corvette Stingray on social media. This time its Jason Cammisa who has his camera pointed at the basic speedometer display as he goes 0-100 mph from a standing start. Because of the media embargo, he can’t share performance times or his driving impressions of the car.

And we are okay with that!

From Jason Cammisa via his Instagram channel:

#C8Corvette driving impressions are embargoed so I can’t tell you whether it’s quick or not. #YouMustDecide

This was at over 3500’ elevation. This was not using launch control. Transmission was in “Tour” mode. This was a soft brake-torque launch. There was a passenger. This was slightly uphill. I was wearing green underpants. Professional idiot, closed course.


Thanks to those disclaimers, we know that Jason’s 0-100 mph sprint is not quite representative of what the C8 Z51 Coupe will actually do when it’s properly tested (utilizing track mode and launch control on a level track surface at lower elevations without a passenger). He most likely used Tour mode as it offers the most basic speedometer layout on the digital dash display to stay within the confines of the media embargo.

Utilizing our phone’s stopwatch, we came up with a time of 10.6 seconds for his tour-mode sprint which is about 2 seconds slower than the posted 0-100 mph time for the C7 Corvette Stingray w/8-Speed Auto.

Like I said, not quite representative of what the car is capable of, but still loads of fun!

  1. Everyone needs there 15 seconds in center stage. Who really cares ? Before these so called experts finish with their personal tours of something not immediately available ………… read your copy of Road & Track. Some of us can make up our own fantasies when dealers get them in inventory. Like small children waiting for Christmas.
