Our friends at the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com found this “side-ways video” posted to YouTube last Monday showing the C8 Corvette Z06 on a public street that may or may not be around Leimbach, France, and our neck has been getting a real workout as we’ve already watched it a half-dozen times.
The car was spied on a small turn-off lane and it looks like it was parked there while a short rain fell as you can see dry pavement when it takes off.
What’s remarkable about this video is watching as the car gets underway and you can hear a very, very short shift from first to second gear.
Also remarkable is the sound from flat-plane crank V8 as the car enters the roadway. The engine climbs to the upper revs which produces an exotic-sounding engine note, and then there is a nice pop during a shift as the car drives out of sight.
