Ladies and gentlemen, this could be one of our best insights yet at what the C8-generation Chevrolet Corvette will look like.
Following the publication of spy shots of the mid-engine Corvette testing at the Nurburgring with skin-tight camouflage, KSS Studio has created this rendering of the supercar. It could prove to be very accurate.
The basic shape of the Corvette is already known. At the front, it will adopt triangular-shaped headlights and use a collection of air intakes rather than a traditional grille. Additionally, we know that the car will have large air intakes directly behind the doors, adopt a steeply-raked rear window, and have a curvaceous rear spoiler.
This rendering offers a look at all these elements without any camouflage and it makes for a nice-looking piece of kit.

Clearly, the design of the new Corvette isn’t as extreme as the Ford GT but it is radically different than the C7 Corvette. We’re not sold on the shape of the vehicle’s rear fascia or the odd spoiler but will reserve our final judgement for when we actually see the new Corvette in the flesh.
Looks aside, the new Corvette will also be hugely different under the skin than the current model. For starters, an entry-level model with a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 and 500 hp is said to be in the works.
Additionally, Chevrolet is expected to offer the car with a new flat-plane crank V8 in naturally-aspirated and twin-turbo guises, delivering 600 hp and 800 hp respectively. It’s possible that the range-topping model could pair a front-mounted 200 hp electric motor to the 800 hp twin-turbo V8 to make for a 1000 hp, all-wheel drive hypercar.
