So, the Corvette does 0-60 in 2.5 seconds now

To date, the fastest car I’ve driven is a 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia. With a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds, it was more than enough speed to send all of my internal organs crashing into the back of the Italian leather seats.

So I can’t imagine what it’s like to go 0-60 nearly a full second faster in the 2024 Corvette E-Ray, Chevrolet’s new hybrid supercar. Chevy quite modestly calls it a “sports car,” which is like calling Simone Biles an “athlete” – if it’s faster than a Bugatti Veyron, it’s pretty “super.”

The starting price is unbelievable, too: just $105,000.
