What happens when you set out to improve upon a storied legacy of small block engines? You get the 6.2L LT2 V8. A no-compromises powerhouse that's been architecturally transformed to sit lower for improved handling. Corvette delivers 495 horsepower and 470 lb.‑ft. of torque, making it the most powerful production Stingray ever.
Every part had to earn its way onto this car, and the standard dual-clutch transmission is no different. It features lightning-quick shifts, combining the smoothness of an automatic with the action and control of a manual. And since there's no deceleration between shifts, your lap times will benefit too.
This next-generation damping system reads the road every millisecond and adapts in as little as 10–15 milliseconds. An innovative suspension fluid contains metal particles that align and become rigid in an instant, giving you the confidence and control to push harder while staying planted. New for 2021, Magnetic Ride Control is available without the Z51 Performance Package (FE2).
Let nothing stand in your way. This available system raises the front of your Corvette almost two inches in less than three seconds at low speeds† so you can clear low obstacles like speed bumps or steep driveways. And since it remembers up to 1,000 GPS locations, it works seamlessly within your world.
With the turn of a meticulously designed dial, everything changes. The Driver Mode Selector lets you electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables on-screen to ready your Stingray for any road. My Mode and Z-Mode let you personalize performance even further, allowing you to save your settings between drives.
Performance stainless steel headers run directly into split volume catalytic converters, which are packaged for maximum efficiency. This combination enables high airflow while enabling Corvette to meet stringent emissions standards.
Adorned with a Corvette insignia, the composite intake manifold has 8 equal length runners of 210 mm in length to maximize torque and airflow for every cylinder. This assembly also uses an 87 mm throttle body.
Oil is pumped from the engine using three scavenge pumps, ensuring oil quality and flow to critical areas occurs during high g‑force cornering.

Add bold Stinger stripes to the hood of your Corvette for a customized look. Available in Carbon Flash/Edge Red, Carbon Flash/Edge Yellow and Carbon Flash/Midnight Silver.
New exterior colors include Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat and Silver flare Metallic. New interior color is Sky Cool Gray with Strike yellow stitching and seat belt accents.
The mid-engine configuration provides incredible visibility, responsiveness and driving feel. The engine placement provides rear weight bias, meaning more power is directed to the rear wheels where it matters most. And with the windshield positioned over the front wheels, the downforce is improved over the seventh-generation, without the need for a front air dam.
The 2021 Corvette offers a retractable hardtop. It adds just 77 pounds to the weight of the vehicle and flows seamlessly into the body while maintaining Stingray's impressive storage capabilities. Available in body-color or Carbon Flash, the hardtop can activate at speeds up to 30 mph. Whether you're on the road with top down or on the track with the top up, performance stays high with the most track-capable Corvette convertible in history.
