What is known about the new Chevy Corvette C8 convertible?September 28, 2019
The official presentation of the new generation of the iconic American sports car Chevy Corvette C8 in the back of a convertible will be held next week – they will show the car on October 2. The car will be able to separately control the lowering / raising of the rear window and roof.
The American concern General Motors, which includes Chevy, released many images of the Corvette C8 cabriolet in July this year – at this time the usual execution of the new generation of the Corvette model, which, among other things, received an average engine layout, was officially presented. The new cabriolet was briefly shown on video at the end of the presentation, and for a long time these frames were the only image of the new open-top supercar.
It is noteworthy that the image of the Corvette salon, which was published in our article for a long time was available for consideration, but for some reason we did not notice those curious facts that “surfaced” recently.
They did not attach much importance to this image until the participants of the MidEngineCorvetteForum foreign forum, which is dedicated to the new generation of the sports car, noticed that there are two buttons in this cabin that are designed specifically for the Corvette convertible. One of them lowers the roof, and the other takes the rear window down. Thus, earlier rumors found confirmation – if desired, the rear window of the new C8 can be raised or lowered regardless of the current position of the roof.
Honestly, if the show of the new Corvette C8 in the back of a convertible weren’t in a few days, we would probably miss this find. However, the fact that these controls “hid” for several months is a bit fascinating, and we cannot help but wonder if the guys from GM had planned this “Easter egg” from the very beginning.
Not so long ago, we wrote that the Chevrolet Corvette electric car set a world record in the electric car segment. Chevy Corvette electrically broke his world record. The electric car accelerated to an impressive 338.28 km / h. Soon, a serial version will be released to the market with a circulation of 75 copies.
