- The eighth generation Corvette will be unveiled during a two day event in California
- Will be the first mid-engine Corvette
Ahead of its debut that is scheduled to take place on July 18, 2019, the new Chevrolet Corvette was spotted testing at the Nurburgring. As seen in the spy images, the test mule of the Corvette C8 will feature a mid-mounted engine unlike the previous generation model. The eighth generation Corvette is set to be unveiled at a two day event in Tustin, California.
The new generation Corvette C8 caught testing here features production-ready headlamps sitting above the aggressive front bumper and a splitter. Towards the rear, it has a quad exhaust setup, bumper with a diffuser and a wing sitting above it.
A few reports suggested that the upcoming Chevrolet Corvette will come with three engine options, of which two would include forced induction. Our source who was up-close with these cars said that is impossible to make if the prototypes had any turbocharger or supercharger. It is likely to arrive with a V8 engine, though unlike the outgoing model, the new Corvette will be mounted behind the driver seat.
