The start-up animation that will appear on the digital dash display of the C8 mid engine Corvette has allegedly leaked online.
GM-Trucks.com managed to acquire a video file of the start-up animation, making for yet another major leak out of the GM skunkworks.
Short and simple, the digital clip flashes the new Corvette badge badge and the ‘Corvette’ script, which features the words ‘By Chevrolet‘ underneath.
It’s impossible to confirm this leak’s validity, but it does appear to be the real deal. Thanks to previous leaks, we know the mid engine Corvette is set to introduce this revised Corvette two flags badge. It doesn’t seem very likely that someone would go through the trouble of mocking up a fake animation like this, either.
GM-Trucks.com says it does not want to comment publicly on how it acquired this video clip, but it was allegedly “collected from a publicly available file by a third party and passed along,” to the website.
General Motors is expected to debut the new mid engine Corvette during a special event sometime later this year. The vehicle, which may also adopt the ‘Zora’ name, will ride on an all-new mid-engine rear-wheel drive architecture from the automaker and is expected to offer a forced-induction, dual-overhead cam V8.
Additionally, GM’s factory racing team, Corvette Racing, are expected to field a new GTE Corvette race car based on the mid-engine platform from 2020 onward. The GTE race car may debut alongside the road-going version, just like Chevy did with the Corvette C7.R and C7 Corvette Z06, although this is only hearsay at this point.
