Mid-Engine Corvette Promises Best Experience For Driving Purists!

By  | 

The manual-automatic debate has quietened down in recent years and this is due to new automatic gearboxes proving that it can offer significantly better performance compared to a traditional stick shifter.

But even with that in mind, manuals are still a win in the eyes of driving enthusiasts as they offer a more engaging driving experience compared to automatics. The good but here is that there are no wrong options with either choices. This is unless you can’t drive a manual, of course.

If so, you may not be able to get the most fun out of the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette C8. The mid-engine Corvette C8 is now heavily linked to arrive with a 7-speed manual gearbox after a leak patent highlights on a new slave cylinder from GM.

There is great certainty that the 7-shifter will feature on the C8 Corvette and it will be sold alongside an automatic option. The latter is likely able to bring out the better performance but it is the former that promises greater fun.
