There was a Corvette engineering team working this morning in Southern Ohio and from that encounter we have full confirmation that the C8 Corvette Z06 will be offered as a Convertible model.
The video comes from Brandon Byers’s Vette Titans Facebook page and he is driving behind two Z06 mules as they make down a rural Ohio two-lane road. Both cars have the large wing which we are assuming is part of the Z07 Performance Package and while the lead car is a Coupe, the second car is a Convertible and the driver is enjoying some top-down driving action.
What’s interesting about this sighting is that the engineering team’s C8 Z06s have shed the heavy black camouflage and are now running with only the vinyl camouflage wrap. That’s probably because so many of us have watched the Nurburgring videos where the cars were also only driven with the camo wrap.
The video lasts a little over six minutes and the Z06 with its top down is the only revelation we were able to glean from it. But hey, we like to joke that other drivers will only see the Z06’s taillights anyways, so here is a six-minute preview on their functionality.
Our friend Rick ‘Corvette’ Conti was apparently also on the scene and he filed his own video on the C8 Corvette prototypes testing in Ohio.
