Now that the production versions of the C8 mid-engine Corvettes have blown off their covers and are now shown only wearing a camouflaged-patterned vinyl wrapper, FVS – the resident artist over at the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com – offers his latest take on next-generation sports car. As a bonus, he also throws in a couple of animated .gifs showing the hardtop convertible and the transformation of the C7 Z06 into the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette.
But first up is a new side rendering in Sebring Orange, Torch Red and a Pearlescent White. Here is FVS on this version:
I just completed a new side view rendering of the C8 Street Coupe we see in the track images. This new rendering is very accurate to the details that can be discerned from the images and some of the other info we know or think we know.
I think this is a fair representation of the car but things “could” change and details remain hidden… but not for long.!
And for some context, he dropped the C8 Corvette render onto the track with a Ferrari:
Here is the version of the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette hard top convertible:
There is another side to the discussion of the current renders and how they compare to the Corvettes on the track. Some on the Mid-Engine Corvette Forum and elsewhere believe that Chevy is still concealing the final design of the side coves as well as the front and rear fascias. Before the C8.R was spied at Road America, the side coves of the C8s including the influential rendering by Car and Driver featured a more rounded design than the “Pac Man” style inlet spotted on the current prototypes.
There is quite a bit of discussion on this so if your interested head over to the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com
FVS also offers a render based on those discussions. He adds “I made this quick render to show the extended scoop as requested. It is similar to an earlier version I did.”
And finally, one last gif image, this showing the C7 Corvette Z06 morphing into the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette. That’s pretty cool, FVS!!
