[SPIED] Get Up Close and Personal with these C8 Corvettes Fueling Up at the Nurburgring


It seems that recently when we’ve come across a new C8 Corvette video, there isn’t much shown that hasn’t been seen before. That’s not that case with this next video.

As these C8 Corvettes are fueling up at a gas station in Germany before hitting the Nurburgring, CarSpotterQVS was able to get right up on the drivers side to give us some views we haven’t see before. Plus, we get to the hear the fantastic exhaust note as these cars leave the station.

We teased a Nurburgring return just yesterday after Corvette_Nut shared a photo of a very un-disguised C8 Corvette prototype with the date banner on the door with the suggestiong that the prototypes were returing to Germany for additional testing. And now here they are and we see that one of the cars in this video has the same license plate as the car shared by Corvette_Nut. So don’t doubt me when I tell you this guy is an insider!

As we described yesterday, we believe these prototypes to be the same cars that were there last September. They have none of the fake padding on the rear spoiler or front fascia, and both have the pre-production headlights and taillights. The two cars we see have the rear wing spoilers and each also has a front chin spoiler.

As the prototypes are waiting to fuel up, the cars are running and that that allowed this car spotter to walk up and capture some of the C8s interior details. Almost everything was covered, but part of the digitial dash could be seen and we have a couple different looks at the screen’s layout:

We also caught this look at the back of the steering wheel and you can see the silver-colored paddle shifter. We are betting that the C8’s interior would feature premium materials and so are guess is that these are made from brushed-aluminum:

After fueling up, the two C8 Corvette prototypes pull out onto the street and head down the road which gave us some great sounds from what we beleive will be the 6.2L LT2 V8 engine.

After the two prototypes take off, we see another prototype coming down the road. We noted that this third C8 had a darker shade of camouflage which is something that Kirk Bennion mentioned back at the NCM Bash in April. He said the first version of the camo didn’t diffuse the lines as much as they wanted so they went to a darker shade. This third C8 is also equipped with production headlights and tailights as well so we believe this third car is a new visitor to the ‘Ring while the other two have been hanging out in Germany since last September when they made their initial appearance.
