Our long Monday commute got some unexpected excitement Monday morning when a camouflaged C8 Corvette showed up in a construction zone on southbound I75 in Auburn Hills, MI. This prototype C8 came rolling by about 7:30 am while we battled the morning rush. We were fortunate to pass by it a few times in the ebb and flow of traffic and safely snap some pix.
While there isn’t anything noticeably new here, we did catch sight of a red interior. Check out the interior A-pillar trim. We did hear the exhaust note which was lovely as well as a few shifts of the transmission. They were very fast like you’d expect with an automatic and emitted a nice quick burble as the revs adjusted to the next gear.
This also appears that it could be a convertible. Note the location of the rear roof panel seam. It doesn’t line up with the back edge of the door glass like a normal Targa roof panel does. Could this be a hardtop convertible model?
With just 16 days to until we see the real thing, this was a great way to kick off the holiday week!
