This was on another web site i visit: Chevrolet has announced that they will introduce a diesel-powered Corvette next spring as a 2009 model. The 2009 Chevrolet Corvette Diesel will be powered by a specially-designed 5.7 liter V8 diesel with twin turbochargers. Output for the engine, developed in cooperation with Isuzu, is estimated at 350 horsepower and 675 lb-ft of torque. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We feel that with its high fuel economy and strong low-end torque characteristics, the turbodiesel is the perfect engine for the Corvette,Ã¢â‚¬Â says a General Motors spokesperson. Early tests indicate that the Corvette Diesel accelerates from 0 to 60 in just over 4 seconds and achieves real-world fuel economy of 32 to 37 MPG.Chevrolet has hinted that if the Corvette Diesel is a hit with buyers, they may consider phasing out gasoline-powered Corvettes altogether and making the turbodiesel engine the exclusive powerplant for the iconic American sports car............. The diesel Corvette will go on sale April 1st, 2008. Happy April FoolÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Day, everyone!
