For the guys who always say if you saw a C8 Corvette you would run right up on it for a closer look, this video is for you!
This C8 Corvette mid-engine prototype was minding its own business as it was out driving on a two-lane road in Michigan when a YouTuber named Knustylz Kustomz came upon it.
The 3-minute video shows the photographer just tooling along behind the prototype and he makes several comments about the car as expected including being worried about running out of gas while following along.
At around 1:45 of the video, the driver of the C8 makes a tactical error as he attempted to shake the tail by turning onto a dead end road with some sort of commercial facility at the end. At that moment the youtuber jumps out off his car and waits for the C8 to turn around. As the car passes him by, you can hear him running as he tries to catch a glimpse of the covered engine compartment.
We don’t really recommend doing this as these Chevy engineers are just trying to do their jobs, but it sure made for some entertaining video!
If you saw a C8 Corvette cornered like this, would you have jumped from your car for a closer look?
