The intermediate engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a powerful sports car that can shift up to 60 km / h in under 3.0 seconds and hit a top speed of 194 km / h, but not when it is new.
Mike Kociba, Deputy Chief Engineer for Stingray‘s 6.2-liter V8, revealed for Detroit Free Press that the car’s computer has been programmed to limit the power until the 500 mile mark has been reached.
Kociba said the engine management system reduces the maximum available torque from 470 lb-ft to 330 lb-ft in first and second gear and limits the redline to 4000 rpm.
“People really rolled the dice when they opened the engine too early 10 or 20 years ago,” Kociba said.
However, if you have your foot on the floor when the odometer tips from 499 to 500, you will not feel a boost, as the car must be switched off before the restriction is lifted.
