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.
