Unwrapped C8 Runs NürburgringSeptember 6, 2018
There have been a lot of spy photos published recently of the C8 mid-engine Corvette being test driven on the street, but not a lot of new information. Well now we have a video of it being tested on the Nürburgring.
The video shows the mid-engine C8 Corvette rounding the famous track; make sure to turn up your speakers. The people we have talked to say it sounds like a turbocharged 4.2-liter V8, just like the rumors say is one of the engine options. It is quieter than the current ZR1, leading us to agree with the turbo idea. Give it a close listen and let us know what you think.
We still know very little about the C8 and this is just one of the test mules we have seen, so there may be other engine optioned C8’s running around, as the rumor mill says there will be engine options at the release.
Another change to the long standing rumor that the C7 and C8 will be available at the same time, is in dispute. The new rumor is that the C7 will end production next year when the C8 becomes available. The C8 is also slated as a 2020 model year. So, if you want a front engine Corvette, this may be your last chance.
