Chevrolet’s worst-kept secret has returned in another quick video snippet. The mid-engine C8 Corvette was caught on camera somewhere in Colorado, and a YouTube starting recording at an intersection.
The video is only 10-seconds long, but we know exactly what we’re looking at. The clip also follows another mid-engine Corvette sighting in Colorado where the cameraman actually followed a prototype for quite some time. Unfortunately, neither video was within earshot of the car’s exhaust note.
All we have is intel and speculation on what could power the C8 Corvette, and the most recent information pegs three different options. The first is the familiar 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine, the second is allegedly a 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 and the final is a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. From the latest information, which surfaced in an IHS Markit report last year, the LT1 would remain an entry-level powertrain, while the 4.2-liter and 5.5-liter V8s round out more powerful options.
Many reports have suggested a 2019 introduction date ahead of a 2020 on-sale date, so we could see the C8 Corvette bow as early as the 2019 North American International Auto Show.
