Chevrolet Corvette C8 May Force You To Practice Stick Shift

By  | 

Every passing day brings us closer to the release of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 and it also brings out more new information on the mid-engine sports car.

The latest reports on the vehicle have basically confirmed that the car will come with a 7-speed manual gearbox. The fact that this claim was made based on GM’s new slave cylinder patent makes it more certain to happen.

Some outlets have gone as far as claiming that the Corvette C8 will be a manual-only car. The traditional setup is necessary for the C8 to become the most driver-oriented, road-legal track car around.

GM is expected to offer a full confirmation on this when they pull the curtains off the mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette C8 at the Detroit Auto Show next year.
