Car and Driver recently put all doubts to rest. During the publication’s Lightning Lap 2021 event, the Chevy Corvette C8 was the fastest vehicle tested.

The mid-engine monster managed to achieve a time of just 2:49.0 as it zoomed along the Virginia International Raceway. That means that the Corvette C8 not only managed to outrace the competition, but also improve upon the times set be earlier iterations.

In second place with a lap time of 2:45.0 was the Lamborghini Huracán Evo. However, while the Huracán Evo has an asking price of $334,969, the Chevy Corvette C8 costs less than $70,000. All of that begs the question: Why would you pay more — a lot more — for less?

With a staggering 0 to 60 mph time of just 2.8 seconds, it’s nigh on impossible to best the Chevrolet Corvette C8 when it comes to performance at a value. To experience excellence in motion, stop by Sour Lake Chevrolet to browse our extensive inventory of high-quality vehicles.
