The mid-engine Corvette C8 may be slightly delayed, but that hasn’t stopped the development team from continuing to test the model. And today, our sleuthing spy managed to catch up to the latest prototype of the upcoming sports car and snap photos of the production-intent front fascia and headlights.
That, in and of itself, would not be very news-worthy given that we already got a good look at the front fascia and headlights late last month. But this time around, some of the camo was being blown off, revealing more about the face of the future Corvette.
Interestingly, the front clip of the mid-engine Corvette C8 seen here looks identical to the leaked photo from the Corvette factory that we saw in October 2017. We can also see the design of the plastic insert flanking the grille, below each headlight. That pattern is nearly identical to that of the grilles on the sixth-gen Camaro ZL1 as well as Chevy’s new Blazer RS.
In addition, we got an even better look at the upcoming Corvette’s headlights. The headlight cluster houses a multi-matrix LED configuration. A white strip at the top does double duty as the Daytime Running Light (DRL) as well as a signature lighting accent. Notably, the strip turns amber/orange when the turn signal indicator is enabled.
