Rumors of Motor Trend testing the C8 Corvette today were apparently true as several videos were uploaded to Instagram showing a Torch Red Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe taking off down the track.

This is great news as it shows the Corvette Team is ready to put their new sportscars in the hands of the magazines for third party testing. The worst part is waiting for the damn magazine to get the results!

After driving the car, MT Features Editor Scott Evans posted to his Instagram account @dasfimpen with this comment: That. Just. Happened. MotorTrend has a C8 Corvette. We’re testing it. I’m driving it. Can’t tell you for a while, though, so please enjoy all the pics and video I’m about to blow your feed with.


In his next post he comments, “Launch control. Yeah, there’s no manual, but manuals don’t launch or shift like this.


Finally, his last video posted, he says “Moar launch control! How fast is it? Can’t say yet.


That was a great look at the Corvette Stingrays speedy 0-60 mph and quarter-mile times, although we’ll have to wait for the final results. There is some wheel spin, but it appears minimal as the rubber seems to hook up with the pavement pretty quickly. Have any thoughts on these videos? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Car appears very well composed, minimal lift and straight, Is that really a 0-60 under 3 sec?

  2. LUCKY GUY THAT Scott Evans , THE CAR SOUNDS AND LOOKS LIKE A WINNER, I CANT SEE ANY OWNERS BEING UNHAPPY WHEN THEY FINALLY GET THEIR CARS. I THINK IT’LL BE WORTH THE WAIT .

  3. I thought my C7 was the ultimate car, but the C8 gives me a lot more to think about…

  4. I just can’t wait to get mine. Torch Red. Haven’t been this excited since i got married.

  5. My only gripe is the muffled exhaust. When does a Cherry Bomb glass pack kit become available?
