It’s been another couple of months since our last sighting of C8 Corvette prototypes but a member of the Corvette Forum has a nice early Christmas present by capturing two prototypes on video.
In fact, this is the second time jbsblownC5 has captured the C8 prototypes on video. Suggesting that lightning does strike twice, the Corvette owner had previously managed to capture one of the first public tests of the C8 Corvette prototypes driving in the San Jacinto Mountains in California nearly two years ago.
While the video shows two prototypes and a C8 Corvette Stingray in Accelerate Yellow, pictures from his forum post show three C8 Corvette prototypes plus the Accelerate Yellow Stingray. All three prototypes have the wheels covered and are wearing the heavy black camouflage to cover what looks like a trio of widebodies.
We also note that the exhaust outlets are on the corners so we are not convinced these are the Z06 prototypes which we think will have dual exhaust pipes center-mounted as has been previously spied. The other explanation is that these could be the rumored hybrid E-Rays which is the model expected to be released in 2023.
Yup, Just under 2 years ago, I got a hot tip that base model C8s were testing in the mountains where I live. Well, it happened again yesterday, uploading and editing, say tuned… Yes, this is a teaser! I’ll put together a few more clips of the more “spirited stuff” soon…
