After more than 50 years later, the Chevrolet Mid-engine C8 Corvette finally gets an official revelation and real performance numbers. But that does not mean we can not talk about opportunities to see the test mule being driven on public roads. Prepared for a private debut on July 18, 2019 in Tustin, California, it will be the culmination of decades of gossip, rumors and fan-made performances.
In the video above, you see a very camouflaged C8 Chevrolet Corvette from 2020 that starts and leaves the parking lot of a construction site. Now the video clip is short, and we estimate that the driver and the passenger approached for a quick meal at the local food stand, but it helps generate excitement and anticipation for the most anticipated Chevrolet car since, well, forever.
Shortly after its launch, the public will have the opportunity to see the C8 at its best on July 27 and 28 at the Concours d'Elegance of America in Plymouth. While we know how it looks, and we have compiled all the information we know in an article, the performance numbers are still up in the air. It is rumored that it has an updated version of 6.21 LT1 V8, which makes an approximate estimate of 500 hp and no option of manual transmission. Forced induction is a possibility, and so is an all-wheel drive offer, but it is most likely the manual transmission in favor of a dual-clutch automatic. There is even talk of a hybrid version, 1000 horsepower and 600 to 800 horsepower after launch.
Chevrolet has been very good at keeping the Corvette C8 mostly secret for many years, and we certainly hope that patience becomes a reality. Stay tuned for more information than we know.
