Now that the C8 Corvettes have landed in Europe, we are starting to get reviews from the various outlets over there and we’ve got a great one to share today. Even though this about the Euro-spec C8 Corvette, it’s a very fun review that starts off with Coke and Fries from McDonald’s and just gets better from there. At least give the first few minutes a watch as the visuals and music choices are outstanding.
The review is by Carfection and was filmed in 4K so the visuals are fantastic. It features the Euro-spec C8 which is the Corvette on sale for the left-hand drive markets like Germany and France.
All the C8 Corvettes offered in Europe are Z51s with Magnetic Ride Control and European buyers can choose between the 2LT and 3LT trim group on the Coupe or the 3LT Convertible. The Euro versions also offer slightly less than the 495-hp performance figure here in the USA due to the requirement of the gas particulate filters which brings the horsepower down to 482-hp and 452 lb-ft of torque.
Henry Catchpole is your driver and it’s interesting to hear his take on the mid-engine C8 Corvette. One of the points he makes is that it feels surprisingly soft to drive and it’s not as “bombastic” as expected. “Even when it does step out a little bit, it’s really smooth,” he says.
