Carscoops published new spy shots and the video of the C8 Corvette testing and all of it is a rather familiar sight. The same camouflage and cladding remain to guard the next-generation Corvette’s identity, but there’s never any denying the engine is mounted in the middle of the car. We can ever so barely make out angular front headlights and a somewhat familiar front fascia that remains connected to the current Corvette.
At the rear, the windshield is raked and appears to lead down into a relatively flat engine cover buried beneath the camo. Elsewhere, it’s difficult to make out any details, so well done camouflagers.
Although we know the mid-engine C8 Corvette is coming, we still don’t know much about it. Plenty of rumors exist surrounding materials, engine offerings and transmissions, but we haven’t received any official word on the car yet. As for the engines, the latest reports suggest a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine making around 500 horsepower will serve as the base mill. From there, a 5.5-liter DOHC V8 engine will join the ranks before giving way to a twin-turbo version of the powerplant. A hybrid setup may arrive in the future and give the Corvette all-wheel drive.
