The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 may turn out to be the world’s most speculatively rendered car of the year.
We totally get the hype behind the C8. After all, it’s not every day that Chevrolet changes a 55-year-old formula and switches to a mid-engine layout. So until GM finally reveals the eighth-generation Corvette, you can be sure renderings will continue to flow. We’ve already shown you our own so today we bring you a new set of CGIs that caught our eye.
We’ve come across these images on one of the many Corvette forums that populate the internet, the MidEngineCorvetteForum. That’s where a user called Björn Daniel Svavarsson posted them. It’s the same guy who gave us the spinning 360-degree video of the C8 Corvette about a month ago.
Svavarsson has now come up with several updated renderings that show a lot more detail than his video with the white Corvette C8. Based on spy shots of the mid-engined Vette, the new CGIs offer a clearer (albeit hypothetical) look at the headlights and taillights. The car also gains clearer feature lines on the front hood and roof, as well as a less sharp treatment of the area behind the side air intakes.
The images also allow us to see the C8 in three different colors, including a vivid red paint that performance cars wear so well. The wheels may be more C7 Stingray than C8 Zora but they sure look good on the mid-engined Vette as well. This virtual mid-engine Corvette looks great but we believe adding one or two contrasting elements on the sides of the car would have made it even more attractive. What do you think?
