With 495 horsepower and 470 lb.‑ft. of torque, this 6.2L small block powerhouse is designed to thrill on every drive, on both road and track, and contributes to an overall 655 horsepower.¹ It features eight equal‑length intake runners of 210 mm to maximize torque and airflow. A dry‑sump oil scavenge system uses three pumps to ensure oil quality and flow to critical areas during high g‑force cornering and acceleration.
The standard 8‑speed dual‑clutch transmission combines the smoothness of an automatic with the control of a manual, giving you high efficiency, lightning‑quick shifts and shorter lap times. A variable Drive Style Index senses your driver inputs and responds with gear holds and downshifts exactly when you expect them.
A 1.9 kWh lithium‑ion battery electrifies Corvette for the first time, powering the electric drive unit that powers the front wheels. The battery is self‑charging, picking up energy as you go, letting you focus on the drive. The E‑Ray battery system includes an integrated power electronics system designed for maximum responsiveness, efficiency and performance, all in support of a 0.5-second improvement in 0‑60 time.
With a rated output of 160 horsepower, the electrified motor powering the front axle along with the LT2 V8 engine provide an incredible 655 combined horsepower.¹ And, while the LT2 V8 engine provides 470 lb.‑ft. of torque to the rear wheels, the electric motor adds an additional 125 lb.-ft. of torque to the front wheels. The result is truly impressive acceleration, whether off the line, exiting corners or during passing maneuvers. In addition, the system offers limited EV‑only drive modes to allow you to move your car or exit your neighborhood in stealthy fashion.
E-Ray features a host of functional design elements, adding wider fenders, quarter panels and fascias. The result is a sleek, sculpted presence with a number of aerodynamic and performance benefits. Standard ground effects and spoiler contribute further to its aerodynamic prowess, while matching body-color accents provide a refined look.
Newly designed wider wheels with exclusive standard all-season tires provide a confident stance and sure-footed performance in a variety of conditions.
