Another day and yet more renderings of the upcoming Chevrolet C8 Corvette have come across our radar. If these images are not enough to get you excited about the long-awaited mid-engined Corvette, we’re not sure what will.
Both of these renderings come from Chazcron over at the Mid Engine Corvette Forum. The first of the renderings provides a detailed look at the front-end of the new American supercar while the second rendering shows off the vehicle from a front three-quarter angle.
Starting with the rendering focused on the front-end, it shows that the new ‘Vette could feature a bold hood complete with no less than four aggressive lines which run diagonally along the hood from the tip of the front bumper. The rendering also previews what the headlights of the car are expected to look like, including the daytime running lights which give the vehicle a sharp look.
As for the second rendering, it is based around an image of the new Corvette which Chevrolet published last week featuring GM chief executive Mary Barra. The supercar in this rendering has been finished in a bright shade of orange and could be the best look we’ve had yet of the C8. Not only do the body panels of the supercar look the part, but the silver and black wheels also provide the car with a very sporty look.
While Chevrolet has said the C8 Corvette will premiere on July 18th, it is remaining tight-lipped about the car’s technical specifications. However, we’re told that the entry-level model will feature a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 with upwards of 500 hp while a range-topping twin-turbo hybrid V8 could pump out 1000 hp.
