[SPIED] Multiple New Videos Show C8 Corvette Testing Now in High Gear


Here’s FOUR more C8 Corvette prototype videos that have been shared in the last couple of days. With exactly 30 days until the reveal in Orange County, this kind of testing and development activity from the Corvette Team is exactly what Corvette owners want to see happening before the car begins production late this year.

We’ve also added a group of C8 photos as well so strap in and let’s go for a ride!

A big thanks to one of our readers who yesterday caught this mule as it was driving towards the Milford Proving Grounds. Brian captured some great footage of the side profile as the C8 was making its way down a multi-lane highway. At the last moment, the driver of the C8 turns his head and seeing the camera pointed at him, backs off the throttle and falls behind our photographer.


This next video is pretty interesting as well. From everybody’s favorite Corvette_Nut comes this close-up video showing at least three C8 Corvette prototypes being readied for a day of driving. You can hear the sound of tape being torn from the roll (as we assume they are taping down any loose camo) and we get some nice views showing the contours on the rear of the car. As the camera pans from one vehicle to the next, we see that one has the pool noodle rear wing spoiler while the other car is without the spoiler.

Just as the camera pans over to a third prototype, we see an engineer with a bunch of gear walking up to the front of the car and just as he opens the frunk, the camera pans towards the rear of the car.


Here’s a couple screenshots of that engineer opening the frunk:

This video also shows a C8 Corvette prototype tooling down the road. The voice-over says it was spotted in the Detroit area as well. That music is dope too!


Last week we shared video of a C8 Corvette prototype parked along Woodward avenue at night. A guy was able to get some extreme close ups of the car including a look down the side intake vent. Turns out he had a friend with him who was grapped this walk-around video of the Corvette as well:


These images were curated from Corvette_Nut and posted on the Corvette Forum’s C8 picture thread over the last couple of days:

  1. Did I see that correctly? The frunk hood opening towards the back instead of traditional forward? Makes sense, I reckon!

  2. I really hope Chevrolet has us all fooled on the final design… In the many pictures and videos, the C8’s dimensions seem not quite right. However, in person the car’s appearance could definitely be more attractive.
    Wonder how many people have already placed a deposit? For me, I’m in the wait and see column…
    Thanks for posting!

  3. I hope you are right JB and these body panels aren’t the final product . All the pix I’ve seen show that the C8 inherited the C5’s big butt.

  4. I hope GM is having a bit of fun with the details under that wrap. The leading edge of the nose and that spoiler looking like something a toddler would make if they designed the car. If the reveal next month doesn’t show any of that nonsense and less chunky on the scoops and inlets I wouldn’t be surprised.
