New 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 So Powerful It Keeps Warping Its Frame

This is the type we love the hear about: So powerful is the C8 Corvette’s engine that so far, Chevy engineers have been unable to build a frame capable of taming it.

That’s right – The new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8’s structural integrity takes such a serious beating every time the car is tested.

In fact, Classic car insurance specialist Hagerty has reported that “The twist in back was enough to fracture the glass hatch covering the engine.” “Be glad this flaw was discovered in advance of your top speed runs in Chevy’s designated Ferrari-beater.”

Normally, we’d be concerned with this type of news but to be very honest, we are tickled pink by this bit of information. Let’s remember that the C8 prototype is powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 that puts out somewhere between 900- and 1,000-horsepower and probably similar amounts of torque.

We were in Detroit last January and one of the unveils we were most looking forward to was of the next generation C8 Corvette. As we all know, it was a complete no-show, and now we know why.

If we were excited beforehand with the next generation Corvette, we are beyond bursting at the seams to finally meet and greet, not America’s Sports Car, but America’s hyper-car crushing supercar!
