With the weight distribution of the C8 Corvette having a rear weight bias of 60/40, the handling characteristics of the car are greatly improved as all that extra weight sits right over the rear axle to provide plenty of traction. That weight distribution really comes in handy when the weather conditions turn bad. And now that Michelin all-season tires are offered on the car, there’s no reason to park the car all winter. It just takes some courage!
Here’s a fun review of the C8 Corvette Convertible equipped with the all-season Michelins driving around on various snow-covered roads. We’ve featured a previous video from the creator who films in POV with no talking…ever. Not so awkward when it’s just the driver in the car, but in this case, the passenger doesn’t talk either. Together they take a ride in a Shadow Gray C8 Convertible with the top both up and down, and the only sound is the LT2 engine as the car glides across the snow.
After getting a little slippy in the snow, the duo finds some cleared roads for some spirited driving and then they wrap it all up with a few donuts in the snow.
Watching the driver having fun in the snow with his C8 Corvette almost makes me wish I stayed in northern Indiana instead of moving to Florida all those years ago. But, it was because of the snow that I moved. So go figure…
