It’s been an interesting year that started out with speculation and rumors about Chevrolet’s new mid-engine sports car and ended with both the C8 and C8.R Corvettes finally being revealed. Over the course of 2019, many of the C8 prototype sightings and videos we featured here come from a Corvette Forum member named “Corvette_Nut”.
In fact, he’s been so good at finding C8 Corvette photos and videos that he’s earned his own tag here at CorvetteBlogger: Corvette_Nut.
Mr. Nut offered up this Christmas gift to Jake Fans last night in the form of a quick video featuring the sounds from the C8.R Corvette as its making its way around Virginia International Raceway:
The C8.Rs are powered by a flat-plane crank V8 engine which is rumored to be coming to the streetcars, perhaps as the future Z06 model. So not only is this a great gift for enjoying now, but most likely this new V8 engine will be the present that keeps Corvette owners happy for years to come!
Thanks again to Corvette_Nut for all the videos and pics shared over the last year!
