It has a single motor hybrid system (electric motor paired with the Stingray’s 6.2-liter LT2 Small Block V-8) pushing 655 HP, AWD, and a Stealth Mode where the driver can operate for a period in full whisper silent electric mode.

It has 20-inch five-spoke wheels up front, 21 inches in the back. The 1.9KWh lithium-ion battery (regenerated by driving it) is located in the tunnel beneath the cabin, the company says. GM says this Corvette is the quickest version yet. Price starts at $104,295 USD for the coupe, $111,295 for a hard top convertible.
