[VIDEO] The C8 Corvette E-Ray Testing On the Streets Around the Nurburgriung

Earlier today we shared some new spy photos of the C8 Corvette E-Ray prototype that was being tested at the Nurburgring. The car never officially made it onto the track, instead, it was only driven around the public streets surrounding the 12.9 mile German circuit.

Stefan Baldauf, the photographer who nabbed those great spy photos also gave us a heads up that video would be coming shortly and so we now have that to share as well.

Watch and listen carefully at around :47 seconds into the video. The C8 E-Ray pulls off onto a side road to wait for the other cars in the group and I swear the engine note is whisper quiet. Unfortunately, the brakes aren’t and we get a protracted example of the brake squealing as the car comes to a stop. But then at that moment, we hear the engine start-up. So was it running silently under battery power and electric motors? At this point, the jury is still out.

  1. I think the E-Ray got an error at 0:47. You can see how the headlights go off before making the turn. I think the driver the restarts the engine manually after coming to a stop.

    Also interesting: In the footage we can see that they are the EU models of the Z06 and the E-Ray. US models always come with orange and red reflectors in head- and rearlights, which are not in the EU models. You can also see the EU turn signal at 1:05 in action while US models would have the sequential red brake light as turn signals.
