The guys from the American brand are diligently testing prototypes of the new mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette. Insiders tell us that the Corvette C8 is due next summer. By now, we already have enough information about the new version of the sports car from Chevrolet, although many of them have not yet been confirmed.

One of the latest rumors concerns the overall dimensions of the new product – the C8 will be slightly longer, lower and wider than the current ZR1 C7. Those spy photos of the legendary sports coupe, which were at the disposal of our publication a couple of minutes ago, captured the heavily camouflaged prototype of the Chevrolet Corvette C8.

Compared to past similar images, you can see some differences. It is reported that these photos were taken by the driver of a passing truck.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

The driver, who was driving the prototype, stopped on the road, so we can take a good look at the car. Two twin tailpipes of the exhaust system (square shape) protrude from the rear diffuser, you can also see the rear spoiler – it is somewhat strangely located. Fans of the Corvette model, who scrutinized the published images, noted that the car had become a little wider and longer.

As for the power unit Chevrolet Corvette C8 2020 model year, we can expect the appearance of the same gasoline engine V8, which equip the current C7. Now, the power of this engine is 460 horsepower (“ceiling” of torque is 630 Nm). Insiders say that in the new version of the model this figure can be from 650 to 1000 hp.
