[VIDEO] 2020 Corvette Stingray Revs Engine at Road America


The Zeus Bronze 2020 Corvette Stingray is supporting Corvette Racing this weekend at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

We keep checking youtube to see if someone captured the presentation from Corvette engineer Ed Piatek on the C8 Corvette. If you see the Piatek presentation anywhere, let us know!

In the meantime, we do have a couple new photos to share and an engine rev video from the event. Our friends at Corvette Racing captured the Zeus Bronze Corvette Stingray Coupe yesterday and today we have two new photos from its display in the Corvette Motorsports Tent.


Here is a video from Road America’s official twitter account featuring a time lapse of the uncovering of the car:


In addition to the photos, Henry Graybeal captured the 2020 Corvette Stingray revving its engine. He apologized for the vertical video and says the revs were unexpected! We’re just glad you shared them anyways!

Taken at Road America during IMSA weekend. Sorry for filming vertically, no one was expecting the dude to start it.


Racing brings out the fans, and no fanbase in sports car racing is more passionate than those who follow Corvette Racing. Here’s a fan’s car that was spotted out in the parking lot. BTW, has anyone seen Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles lately??


Do you have any good pics or videos of the 2020 Corvette Stingray at Road America? Let us know!

  1. Yep, that top photo sure depicts the ‘Younger Generation of Buyers’ GM seeks. And there you have it.

  2. Yes, I am.
    Gm/Chev focusing on young buyers … I don’t blame them.
    Albeit, don’t forget the people who got you where you are!
    The C8 is NOT a practical, every day, Corvette. An HPDE / Track Day Corvette, most assuredly!
    I believe discontinuing the front-mid engine platform all together is a mistake. C8s alone will not result in 35-40,000 unit sales year-over-year.
    In our neighborhood, we have more than a few ladies that drive their Vettes everywhere, to the supermarket, hair salon, etc. C5s, 6s, converts; ‘practical’ Corvettes for their life style. In the 2 Corvette clubs we belong to, fully 95% of members have no idea what ‘polar-moment-of-inertia’ and ‘better-turn-in’ means, let alone have a ‘feel’ for it. They own a Corvette because they’ve wanted one since their teenage years, and they now have to means to own one. They have never, nor will they ever participate in a HPDE or Track Day events.
    Can’t wait to see a C8 door open in a parking lot with those air scoop appendages sticking out and see what happens, even with those special hinges.
    For the DIY guy, you might be able to do an LOF. Try getting to the air filter on a C8. Change plugs.
    To do any wrenching on the engine it will have to be dropped. Notice no mention of that anywhere.
    And, as someone commented in a previous CorvetteBlogger, the young don’t have $60K to spend or the financials for monthly car payments, plus insurance, maintenance/upkeep to afford a C8, even at $58-60K; they ARE into tuning Hondas, Toyotas, even VWs.
    The C8 rear-mid engine Corvette is for a very limited few, I fear. Yes, they are almost sold out for 1st year production. What then after the pent-up demand and hype?
    I would have preferred dual production; front-mid engine for the critical mass customers, a rear-mid engine ZR1-Zora for the HPDE / Track Day limited number of enthusiasts.

    Owner: 1980 4 speed man [which means L48], 2013 Grand Sport 6 speed man [which means hand-built engine w/dry sump], truly a contradiction in terms.
