[VIDEO] C8 Corvette Launches on the Street When the Stop Light Turns Green


Here’s a Rapid Blue 2020 Corvette Stingray living up to its new name!

We caught this video on YouTube showing the new C8 Corvette sitting at a red light. Of course, you can guess what happens next!

As the light turns green, the accelerator is mashed to the floor which provided this nice view as the new Corvette blasts off the line and heads through the intersection with tires squealing.

The C8 Corvette prototype drivers we have been seeing on the streets are usually a little more restrained but perhaps he was testing the Launch Control system. We’re just glad it was captured on video. Sometimes you just got to drive the Corvette prototype the way it was meant to be driven!

According to the original poster, this happened in Detroit.

The video was originally pulled from YouTube earlier today but then we learned that Corvette seller and youtuber Mike Davenport bought the rights to it so now it’s back. The action takes place at 4:03 to see the video of the 2020 Corvette Stingray jumping off the line:


Thanks to Robert Ananiadis on Facebook for allowing us to share the photos from his encounter with the Rapid Blue Corvette.

  1. Well, at least I got to see a random C8 accelerate from the light before the video was pulled.
    Nice acceleration, but definitely 0-60 killing wheel spin was occurring.
    Wonder who’s in deep sh-t at Chevrolet???
    JB

  2. Is this ChevyDude cat locates in TN? That whole neighborhood in the background looks like mine! Just curious!

  3. Really pretty lame if you ask me and with plenty of wheel spin going to put that < 3 sec. way over 4+ and exhaust sound is crap

  4. How does that represent a sub 3 seconds 0-60? That’s was a C8 slightly spinning it’s tires accelerating from a traffic light. No more than I’ve done in my vehicle. One thing I did notice was the tame exhaust sound.

  5. I have had a few Corvettes and they are way over rated. Just another car. I would never buy a first year run of that car . Remember the 1968 Corvette?

  6. This guy is a super bag. This is what happens when idiots have money. (Talked ng about the douchebag doing burnouts in the garage of his $2-$300,000 house

  7. Can’t be happy it happened on the street. Plenty of tracks around to do the same thing in a safer, controlled environment. Chevy can’t be happy, not a good look.

  8. That’s the stupidest shit I have ever seen a grown man do, a burnout in the garage, a burnout is high school shit, grow up get a real car

  9. OK all you whiny haters STFU. Why would anyone be in deep shit at GM?? The car was built to do this stuff, showing off, making other cars cry, it’s his house he can do burn outs, I can think of much worse, Bill (both Bills) really? Just another car?? You probably drive a Stang or Mopile. I myself enjoy the hell out of stop light launches by anything fast, doing burn outs doesn’t do to much if any harm, stock exhaust sounds fine and he didn’t stand on it hard, he’s playing and showing off. What a bunch of grandmas. Cry babies, idiots like you clowns are part of the problem.

  10. Wow. I instantly hate that blonde guy. Using the term “full send” repeatedly and making a several minute video mostly about himself from a five second small burnout video someone else caught? Ugh, what a tool. It’s sad that he’s getting the YouTube views from this.

    Well, at least the blue Vette looks cool.

  11. Danny he has some good info on cars if you look him up on YouTube. I do have to agree about doing doing burnouts in the garage it’s lame. I wonder if he is married or was until the video. I think he would be a great choice if the remade the movie “ Used Cars”?
