Corvettes for Kids
General Motors Canada is thrilled to donate for auction, the very last 7th generation Chevrolet Corvette and very first all-new 8th generation mid-engine Corvette Stingray built for Canada, to support Sharon’s Kids — a charity that’s been part of our history for 52 years.
Precision is our starting line
This all-new mid-engine sports car is so much more than Next Generation – it’s next level. At once precise and powerful, the Corvette Stingray Coupe and Convertible have been completely redesigned from the ground up to deliver a thrill on every drive. It’s no surprise then that Corvette was named the 2020 North American Car of the Year.
AWARDS AND ACCOLADES
A mid-engine masterpiece
When you completely reimagine a car as iconic as Corvette, you get a beautifully sculpted mid-engine sports car that makes a powerful statement. Not your everyday car, but a car you want to drive every day. And with aerodynamic components integrated throughout, its gorgeous form is functional.
- Only a single part has been carried over from the last generation
- Door handles and the hatch and hood releases have been hidden for a perfectly clean appearance and improved aerodynamics
- The all-new LT2 V8 engine is visible through a rear hatch window
- Available Engine Appearance Package† adds carbon-fiber components as well as LED lights to illuminate the engine
The convertible has arrived
Corvette has always been convertible-first, and the 2020 Stingray carries on that heritage with our first-ever production retractable hardtop. This no-compromise convertible features a top that flows seamlessly into the body while maintaining Stingray’s impressive storage capabilities. And performance remains high when the top goes down, making this the most track-capable Corvette convertible in history.
A true performance hardtop
The two-piece hardtop can be activated at speeds up to 48 km/h (30 mph) with the power of six electric motors for improved durability. The composite top weighs a mere 35 kg (77 lb.) and is available in body-colour or Carbon Flash.

A new profile in power
The mid-engine configuration provides incredible visibility, responsiveness and driving feel. The new engine placement provides rear weight bias, meaning more power is directed to the rear wheels where it matters most. And with the windshield now over the front wheels, there’s improved downforce without the need for a front air dam.
Leave nothing behind
Even storage has been thoughtfully engineered. An all-new front cargo area is large enough to carry an airline-size overhead bag, while the trunk can hold two golf bags or the removable roof panel.
A more rigid frame
The all-new body structure is more than 10% stiffer than the previous generation, which contributes to ride and confidence-inspiring handling.
More to meet your eyes
With the engine in the rear, engineers were able to lower the cowl, hood, instrument panel and steering wheel for the utmost in forward vision.
Select your stance
Tailor your look with a choice of wheels wrapped in standard all-season tires†. These ultra-light 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels provide improved ride and reduced noise and are available in two designs inside of two spoke styles.

Coming soon to a track near you
Debuting January 2020 in the Rolex 24 At Daytona, the C8.R race car will feature two unique liveries and compete for Chevrolet in the GT Le Mans class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
A heart that’s always racing
What happens when you set out to improve upon a storied legacy of small block engines? You get the all-new 6.2L LT2 V8. A no-compromises powerhouse that’s been architecturally transformed to sit lower for improved handling. It’s equipped with a standard dry-sump system for improved performance when g-forces are high, and features Continuously Variable Valve Timing that further improves performance.
Stingray by the numbers
The LT2 V8 engine in the 2020 Corvette delivers up to an available 495 horsepower† and available 470 lb.-ft. of torque,† making it the most powerful production Stingray ever and giving it a top speed on a race track of 312 km/h (194 mph). When properly equipped, the 2020 Corvette can reach speeds of up to 96 km/h (0-60 mph) in 2.9 seconds+ and has a quarter mile time of 11.2 seconds++.
Pure and precise shifting
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 of a manual. And since there’s no deceleration between shifts, your lap times will benefit too.
Take headwinds head-on
The 2020 Corvette was born in the wind tunnel, with its new mid-engine architecture
providing a number of aerodynamic and cooling benefits. Like heat exchangers behind each opening to keep the engine cool and a hybrid rear spoiler that helps keep the car planted at high speed.
Z51 Performance Package
Summer-only performance tires.† Massive brakes. Electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD). Front splitter. Performance exhaust. The list goes on and on. When you demand even more agility and performance from your Corvette, the available Z51 Performance Package is what you get.
Magnetic Ride Control 4.0
This available 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.
The right mode for every road
With the turn of a meticulously designed dial, everything changes. The Driver Mode Selector lets you electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables to ready your Stingray for any road. And all-new My Mode and Z-Mode let you personalize performance even further, allowing you to save settings between drives.

From the latest Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system† with 8-inch diagonal colour touch-screen to the ingenious available Front Lift, every feature was included to improve your drive.

And since it remembers up to 1,000 GPS locations, it works seamlessly within your world.
