Default The 2020 Midengine Corvette Stingray could Provide a Perfect Platform for an Electric

In 2002, Cadillac celebrated 100 years of building cars by building a special mid-engine, supercar concept car: the Cien. Cadillac said, ďin keeping with the brandís role as a technology flagship for General Motors, the V12-powered Cadillac Cien concept car is a befitting icon to usher in the brandís 100th anniversaryĒ Cien is Spanish for 100. And the new 2020 C8 Corvette could provide a perfect platform for an electric Cadillac.





The Cien was an amazing concept car, with chiseled, sharp styling that would echo through Cadillacís future cars for years to come. Itís Northstar 7.5L XV12 engine made a whopping 750HP/650TQ and propelled the car to 60 MPH in 3.5 seconds. 2002 was the same year that Ferrari released their iconic, mid-engine supercar, the $660,000 Ferrari Enzo whose 6.0L V12 engine made 650HP/485TQ and got to 60MPH in an amazing 3.1 sec. You can be sure that none of the Ferrari buyers cared that the new supercar managed 7MPG city/12MPG hwy, but efficiency does matter today.

Then we quickly fast forward to the newly revealed 2020 Corvette Stingray, which is rated at 495HP/470TQ, and which is supposed to be capable of 0-60 in under 3.0 secs.
