After seeing a massive image gallery with the next-gen Chevrolet Corvette, it’s now time to feast our eyes on a spy video.
Shot at the car Mecca known as the Nurburgring, the clip shows the much awaited American supercar in action, tackling corners with ease thanks to the improved weight distribution and handling.
Responsible for rocketing the all-new Corvette is a rear mid-mounted engine, probably the 6.2-liter V8 LT1, expected to produce around 500 horses. Okay, that’s not really impressive, given that we have mega hatchbacks with 400 hp, but this will be only the beginning, as a flat-plane crank 5.5-liter V8 unit will be reportedly added to the range as well, offering as much as 600hp.

Some say that a twin-turbo version of the same engine might develop nearly 800 hp, thus putting the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette in the same pit as the McLaren 720S, in terms of power at least. And that’s not all, because GM’s engineers might add an electric motor to drive the front wheels, raising the total output to hypercar levels: 1,000 horsepower.
The future does look bright indeed when it comes to the Corvette, which has a certain European supercar vibe thanks to its mid-engine layout. The exterior remains under wraps for now, but the curvaceous shape of the model is still visible from beneath the vinyl stickers.
Chevy will likely raise the curtain for the Corvette C8 next year, probably during a major automotive event, so that’s when we’ll find out what it’s made of, until the first reviews come out.
