Spy shots of the mid-engine Corvette have surfaced once again fuelling rumours that the Chevrolet is working on bringing out a super car for its iconic sporty brand. The car is still heavily camouflaged, but we suspect that this is just a ruse as the car has been under development for more than 4 years and should now be at a point where a production-ready model is ready to see the light of day.
It’s expected to serve as a halo car for the brand name and will be built at Chevrolet’s Bowling Green plant in Kentucky where the current car is built. This plant is in line to receive an 800 million dollar investment which we suspect is to bring the plant up to shape for the production of this new mid-engine Corvette.
Our spy sources tell us that instead of the 4.2-litre V8, this mid-engine Corvette will make use of the 6.2-litre big-block V8 found in Zo6 and ZR-1 models of the current Corvette range. There’s a possibility that this car may get some kind of hybrid power system to increase output as well as bring the Corvette up to range in the modern era.
