The debut of the C8 Corvette dominated auto news headlines in 2019, garnering widespread attention and praise all across the world. It makes sense – after all, the move to a new mid-engine platform is a fundamental change for the storied Chevrolet Corvette nameplate. However, with full production officially underway, some are wondering how the sports car came to be. Now, a new documentary aims to answer that question.
The new doc is titled “Revolution: The Mid-Engine Corvette Development Story,” and is previewed in a brief one-minute, 25-second teaser video. Broken into two parts, the new documentary is set to be released in the next few months. Interested fans will find the new C8 Corvette documentary at the Corvette homepage on Chevy’s media site.
The doc looks to include some valuable insights from the individuals that actually put in the work to create the new C8 Corvette. What’s more, the video will talk about the team’s time at the world-famous Nürburgring race track, where the new C8 honed its performance chops to compete against some of the most impressive sports cars on the planet.
Indeed, the pressure that the C8 Corvette team felt in developing this new mid-engine sports car is palpable. The emphasis is on “getting it right” with regard to performance, design, and execution, all while paying homage to the Corvette nameplate lineage.
Of course, the story of C8 Corvette is far from over. We’re still eagerly awaiting further details on the upcoming C8 Corvette Z06, which was recently spotted in Southern California conducting some real-world testing alongside a Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The latest news is that C8 Corvette Z06 will come with a massive rear wing and naturally aspirated V8 engine.
