There are photos of the cabin of the eighth generation supercar

Spies managed to look inside the eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette and take a few pictures. New acquired leather interior, two-spoke multifunction steering wheel, digital dashboard and buttons change the transmission modes, which replaced the traditional gear lever.

Judging by the photos, the salon is made with an eye to a higher class. For example, the central tunnel is now not plastic, as before, but is covered with white skin. The same material is used to finish the door panels. Chairs with improved lateral support were glossy black inserts in the neck.

In the list of available equipment – cruise control, Bose audio system, heated steering wheel and multimedia system with a touch screen in a massive package with voice control.

The premiere of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 will be held July 18. According to unconfirmed preliminary data, the model of the eighth generation “in the base” will be offered with a modernized atmospheric V8, issuing about 500 horsepower. The most important innovation for the model was the transition from front-engine to mid-engine layout.

Earlier at Barrett-Jackson auction was sold last released instance of the previous generation Corvette. A car with a 659-hp 6.2 V8 under the hood was estimated at 2.7 million dollars.
