[VIDEO] Accelerate Yellow 2020 Corvette Z51 Coupe Goes to Work at the Drag Strip


The C8 Corvette is taking on all comers on the dragstrip, and more times than not, the new mid-engine Stingray is slaying its opponents.

Take, for instance, this bone-stock Accelerate Yellow coupe, equipped with the Z51 performance package and high-wing spoiler.

This “highlighter yellow” Corvette erased three out of four opponents during a recent trip to Milan Dragway in Milan, Michigan.

The Stingray did lose its first race to a Hellcat Redeye with 302 more horsepower and drag radials at the back, falling 10.77 seconds to 11.37 seconds.

But the Corvette quickly bounced back to record its widest margin of victory all day with its best time of the afternoon, ripping a Ford Mustang, 11.19 seconds to 12.50.

A fourth-generation Camaro made it a lot closer, especially considering the difference in the age of the cars, but the 2020 Stingray still won, 11.51 to 11.87 seconds.

The last race of the day featured the Corvette against a Challenger R/T Scat Pack that boasted of 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque, but the Chevy’s 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque were just too much, with the Stingray winning 11.81 to 12.26 seconds.

With some modified mid-engine Corvettes already dipping below 11 seconds, how low will the Stingrays eventually go?

  1. The best color for the C8 imo! It looks very exotic in Accelerate Yellow. The color is very vivid and it has a greenish tint to it as well which I like.
