Default Motor Trend Puts the 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray On The Dyno And Sees Over 600 Horsepow

Motor Trend has been testing the new 2020 C8 Corvette for a while now, but they decided to put it on the dyno to see what kind of numbers the new Corvette can put down and they were immediately blown away, but it may not be real.





For those of you who don't know, the dyno measures the amount of horsepower and torque generated at the rear wheels, and the general rule is about 15% drivetrain loss in power from the manufacturers stated horsepower numbers. GMs testing of the 2020 C8 Corvette LT2 was certified at 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. A 15% drivetrain loss on those numbers should have ended with the dyno showing around 421 hp at the rear wheels.

Back in the 60's Pontiac had a GTO going around to the various magazines and the car seemed to be exceptionally fast. The link below explains what Pontiac did to the car. Wouldn't be surprised if Chevy has done the modern version of Pontiac's ringer.
