2022 Chevrolet Corvette 3LT Z51 C8.R Championship Edition There is hardly ever a need to give the Corvette an introduction; every corner of the world knows that this car stands as a statement that American automotive is much more than just angry muscle cars that sprint down a drag strip; it is a statement that American vehicles can be competitive anywhere, even on the track. With each generation, the Corvette just kept getting better, and when it finally returned to its mid-engine layout for the C8 since its introduction, it was pure joy. Chevrolet went on to sell many versions of the C8, one of which is this very special C8.R Championship Edition, one of just 1,000 to be produced. What's more, the current owner reports that this example holds the highest MRSP of the lot, making it a truly special offering.
Being the C8.R edition, the Corvette was offered in two color variants, one of which is the Accelerate Yellow Metallic featured here. The car sports a dealer-installed black toe hook and exposed carbon fiber ground effects package, a visible carbon fiber grille and mirror caps, as well as a Z51 performance suspension with Magnetic Ride Control via the Z51 package. The interior of the 2022 Chevrolet Corvette 3LT Z51 C8.R Championship Edition is just as striking and impressive. Now, just like any Corvette, the cabin is very much driver-focused, with virtually all the control panels, including the infotainment system, cocooning the driver's seat. The Cool Sky Gray cabin houses interior trim, a carbon fiber gauge cluster frame around the digital cluster, an iconic square-shaped steering wheel, crisp paddle shifters, and console door plates. The buyer will also receive a set of premium leather travel bags.
Being the first time an engine has to sit behind the cockpit of a Corvette, Chevrolet saw it only fit that they offered the C8, a roaring 6.2L LT2 cross-plane V8 that would drive 490 horses directly to the tarmac via the rear wheels with the help of a snappy 8-speed automatic gearbox.
