A car spotter in Germany has filmed two 2020 mid engine Corvette C8 prototypes getting gas at a fuel station nearby the world-famous Nurburgring.
The video provides us with our best look at the mid engine Corvette C8 thus far. Not only does it show the interior and new digital dash, it also features a clip of both cars accelerating hard away from the gas station. Not surprisingly, both the cars have a typical snarling Small Block exhaust note. The lead car seems to sound a bit different than the car following it, but it’s extremely hard to say for sure.
These prototypes also feature barren Sparco race seats, but don’t worry, these are not representative of the production car’s seats. Nurburgring-bound development prototypes are often fitted with race seats, harnesses and sometimes even a roll cage in order to keep the driver and passenger snug through the corners and to keep them safe should something go wrong.
An up-close zoom shot of one of the prototype’s tires reveals the car is wearing Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 4S tires as well, which measure in at 245/35/19.
With the reveal less than a month away, it’s not surprising to see Chevrolet getting a little bit more care free with regard to its mid engine Corvette C8 prototypes. Besides, there’s not much the automaker can do to keep the prying eyes away at the Nurburgring, with an abundance of car enthusiasts, spotters and photographers flocking to the track in the summer months.
Check out this fascinating spy video embedded above and feel free to let us know what you think of the mid engine Corvette C8’s digital dash, exhaust note and other items seen in the video.
