How We Would Configure Our C8 Corvette

    Greetings Short-Shifters! We’re finally able to answer the question that’s been burning in your minds since it was announced: How would we configure a car we will probably definitely never buy?

    Of course we’re talking about the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette (or C8 if you’re cool)! The ‘Vette configurator is now live on Chevy’s website and we had some fun with it today. So without further ado, here are our following dream specs:

    *Side note: Of course Chevy advertises this as a mid-engine supercar under $60K ($59,995), but you’ll never get that. You would literally have to accept the absolute base model and convince the dealership to forgo the destination charge of $1,095. Good luck!
