Fans and the press have not won a flood of the Corvette’s eighth generation in recent months. Cheap purchase price, unmatched power (495 horsepower and 637 Nm of torque), acceleration to 100 km / h in about three seconds. This is the most serious sports car league, where in addition to explosive power, durability is also a key issue.

There seems to be still room for refinement in this area on the C8 generation, as there are more and more stories about the serious failure of the 6.2-liter, turbocharged V8. Images are taken of specifically disassembled engine blocks where the damage to the piston and the bent valves clearly indicate a fault in the valve spring.

The car in the pictures was only 91 kilometers away, so the impatient owner couldn’t ruin it either, because sports cars with this power can still be used in a limited mode with this much mileage, and the electronics don’t allow the ban to spin.

This problem was already present in the middle of last year, and there have been so many complaints that General Motors has also acknowledged the phenomenon, according to a statement released, pieces produced between June and September 2020 could be affected by the defect.
