A GM document was recently leaked about the specifications of 2020 Corvette C8. Although the car was officially announced and sent all over the US for dealerships yet we had small to zero ideas about the specifications of this car. The leaked report helps us a lot as we can compare it to other cars.
The company had released the dry weight of Corvette C8 which was 3366 pounds. Though, the dry weight isn’t something to depend upon. This is because dry weight does not include the mass of a number of added stuff. For example, engine oil, coolant, transmission fluid, etc.
The Corvette C8 has a curb weight of 3535 pounds which is quite reliable for comparison with others. The older version, Corvette C7 did not weigh as much as the Corvette C8. Corvette C7 was 3298 pounds which is a total of 237 pounds less than Corvette C8.
The other models of Corvette weighed somewhere between the two. C7 Corvette ZR1 Coupe weighed 3560 pounds. C7 Corvette Z06 weighs 3524 pounds. C7 Corvette ground support weighs 3428 pounds.
The other similar class models weights are compared below:
Porsche 718 Cayman weights 2944 pounds, much lighter than 2020 Corvette C8.
The McLaren 570S weighs 3212 pounds.
The Ford GT weighs 3354 pounds.
Lamborghini Huracan EVO weighs around 3500 pounds.
Audi R8 RWS weighs 3505 pounds.
Acura NSX weighs 3803 pounds which are higher than Corvette C8.
The 2020 Corvette model definitely weighs more than other prevailing models of its class. The Corvette C8 2020 car is actually in the list of least expensive cars. The car is priced only a few thousand more than the least expensive car that exists which is Porsche 718 Cayman. Corvette lies just behind the Porsche 718 Cayman in matters of least pricing.
