While GM refrained from dropping any major details on the Corvette C8 at the annual NCM Bash, it made good on its word and showed off the new crossed flags logo that will appear on the car.
As shown off by Corvette product manager Harlan Charles in the Corvette Blogger video above, the new crossed flag logo is slightly different than the one that appears on the C7 Corvette. The inside edges of the checkered flag and red Chevrolet flag now touch each other, whereas on the old logo they were separated and formed more of a ‘v’ shape in the middle. The crossed flags logo has been changed for every generation of Corvette.
Just like on the current Corvette C7, Chevrolet will be offering the crossed flags badge with a bright chrome finish or a gloss grey finish on the Corvette C8.
The logo had previously leaked through online and was also pictured in a video that purported to show the Corvette C8’s start-up animation. In that video, the crossed flags badge was pictured with the gloss grey border.
Additionally, GM also announced that the the 25th Corvette C8 to roll of the production line in Bowling Green would be given to the NCM for it to raffle off at its 25th Anniversary Celebration in August. Tickets for the raffle will be $25.
The mid engine Corvette C8 is set to make its debut on July 18th, 2019.
