Auto reviewer Javier Mota was able to test drive the 2020 Corvette Stingray Coupe and because he cannot offer his driving impressions until the media embargo is over this week, he can let the Stingray’s LT2 give a hint of what it’s capable of.
In this preview video posted last week, Javier mounted a camera inside the engine compartment so the motor’s audio is crisp and clear. The video isn’t sync’d to the audio so no breaking out the stopwatch. But wow! It’s one of the clearest audio recordings we’ve heard of the 495-hp LT2 yet.
Javier also offers plenty of visuals featuring the different Driver’s Modes with the associated screens displayed on the 12-inch digital dash as well as various over-the-shoulder shots which should give you an idea of what it would be like to be driving the next-generation Corvette.
We do note that the check engine light is on. It’s unfortunate, but this is most likely a pre-production model so there is that.
