Even the base C8 Corvette Stingray can hit 60 mph in 3.0 seconds flat

By now you’ve almost certainly heard that the long-awaited mid-engine Corvette is a performance animal, and that the Z51 Stingray can rip from 0–60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Now, Chevrolet has released this little tidbit—the base 2020 Corvette without the Z51 pack can still do it in 3.0 seconds flat.

That’s quick! Still, I can hit 65.45 miles per hour after three seconds of free fall from a stationary object like a hovering helicopter or a balloon. Too bad we can’t convert that vertical speed to horizontal and have a real race. Gravity has too many unbreakable rules.

32.2 ft/s/s
That would be screaming horizontally
