A Chevrolet salesman who attended a seller assembly in Las Vegas stated he noticed official pictures of the eighth-generation Vette, describing it because the cross between a Corvette ZR1 and a Lotus. The ZR1 is the most popular Corvette on sale, with 755 horsepower and a claimed 211-mph prime pace. Quickly, it is probably not.

The C8 Vette is certainly actual. We all know it’s coming, and we all know (principally) the way it’ll look. Check mules of elongated Corvettes have been noticed a number of occasions since final 12 months, and the rumors of a Corvette with its V-Eight engine mounted behind the motive force have been brewing for for much longer (many years, truly, for the reason that Astro II idea in 1968). Hypothesis has been rampant, and there isn’t something official apart from to anticipate probably the most precise-handling, agile, and unique Corvette ever made, however crucially, provided at a modest worth.


Leaked design photographs and paperwork counsel the automotive will likely be powered by a brand new twin-turbocharged V8.

Count on the manufacturing automotive to debut someday later this 12 months, with gross sales starting in 2019.
