The mid-engine C8 Corvette had its fair share of spottings and leaks this past year, and new video aims to provide our best look yet at the new car.
YouTuber kaldarleifar has taken the spy photos and worked magic to bring the mid-engine C8 Corvette to life in the best way possible. The creator said he used photogrammetry, the use of photography in surveying and mapping to measure distances between objects, to create a pretty spot-on representation of what the final car could look like.
The front end falls directly in life with what we’ve imagined lies underneath the swirled camouflage. The nose is very much still a Corvette and the headlights even appear similar to the current C7 Corvette Stingray. As the 3D model rotates, the side view features a large scoop to feed air into the mid-mounted engine and we’re really digging the style lines running over where the door would sit. However, this feature may be pushed back slightly as to not interrupt a production door. Though, now that we look at spy shots again, this same scallop does seem to impede on area where the door handle would be.
Finally, at the rear, the rendering sports long taillights that we’re sure will be filled with traditional Corvette light signatures and two vented areas. The final blank spaces are where the production car will house quad exhaust tips—a major departure from the current car that sees its exhaust outlets organized in a single-file line in the center.
The overall package looks pretty close to what we will likely see from the production car when it debuts. But, we do imagine the front fascia to look somewhat slimmer and not as chunky looking.
