Watch the new Corvette Stingray reach 300 km/h on the Autobahn image

A Chevrolet Corvette, from the new generation, has been recently taken to the German Autobahn, which still has several “no speed limit” segments, where it managed to reach 300 km/h (186 mph).

The seventh generation of the Chevrolet Corvette is proving, once again, that it’s worthy of European roads too, and not just of American ones, as an example has been recently taken to the Autobahn, where it was able to reach a total speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). This was measured by a digital speedometer and it’s extremely close to what Chevy claims to be the top speed of the model, 305 km/h (190 mph).

The brand new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is taking its power from a large 6.2 liter LT1 V8 gasoline burner, which is producing a total output of 455 BHP (339 kW) and it has a peak torque of 460 lb-ft (624 Nm) in standard form, or, with the optional performance exhaust system, the figures go to 460 BHP (343 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) is said to be made in under 4 seconds, as the company didn’t release it, but we know that its official top speed stands at 305 km/h (190 mph).
