The C8 Corvette is a sports car not only General Motors can proud of, but pretty much all of America as a whole. It's also Detroit's very affordable answer to the mid-engine offerings of Europe, and a 495-horsepower rocket you should be able to race against the best of the best in the digital space. Luckily, Forza just announced that it will release the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on the Forza Horizon 4 gaming platform on Jan. 14, 2021, otherwise known as tomorrow.
One can do a lot in Forza these days, such as drive a Hummer H1 or Master Chief's Warthog, and even turn the whole game into a Lego racing experience. You can even go as far as printing a car magazine using Forza screenshots only, all while keeping items like the Confederate or Rising Sun flags out of the acquisition.
With its mid-mounted 6.2-liter V8 and 470 pound-feet of torque, the 2021 Corvette Stingray joins the game's 1953 and 1960 Corvettes, as well as the '67 Stingray 427, 2002 and 2015 Z06, the 2020 C7 Z51, plus all ZR1s since they first launched in 1970. As we recently learned, the C8 switched platform exactly because at 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque, the 2019 ZR1 left just no room for further improvement as a front-engine sports car.
Digital or not, the 2021 Corvette has enough grunt (with its performance exhaust system) for a zero-to-60 sprint in under 3 seconds, a quarter-mile in a respectable 11.2 seconds, and a top speed of 194 mph. More to come to the C8 from GM of course, as well as to Forza 4 Horizon in due time, no doubt.
