A photo of the C8 Mid-Engine has leaked online showing a tight shot of the rear of the car.
We think it is…
The image shows an Elkhart Lake Blue 2020 Corvette wearing the wing spoiler with the blow-thru section in the middle. It appears to be the same as what we’ve seen on the Nurburgring Corvettes that are currently testing there as well as the original spoiler that was spied in the plant’s paint shop back in 2017.
We finally see the production taillight design which shows a white lens similar to the C7 Z06/ZR1 taillamps as well as how the red lenses appear to point to each side. They look very close to the lights we saw on the C8.R testing at Sebring and we also know from several mule spottings that they will have sequential turn signals.
The bottom portion of the rear fascia is finished in mostly likely Carbon Flash (Black) much like the C7 Corvettes and it does seem to add more contrast to the two sections.
At the very bottom is the two exhaust ports per side on each corner. The mules have shown that there is some kind of venting that runs in the middle between the exhaust ports but it’s hard to see much detail here.
The location of the car in the photos is also curious and as we spy the yellow chain and red lift, we have to think that they were taken from within the assembly plant.
It’s a shame that the photo has leaked and we have to wonder if this is a one-time occurrence or if other photos will follow. Although some sort of leak is always expected this close to the reveal, we kind of feel like the kid that has slightly unwrapped a present the night before Christmas to have a peak of what’s inside. Sure we’re excited, but once seen you cannot unsee it.
Merry Christmas in July, America!
