While the world is waiting for the official reveal of the all-new, mid-engine Corvette later today, someone was eager to share a full shot of the model’s impressive interior.
Of course if you’re a regular Carscoops reader, you’ve already seen the C8 Corvette’s cabin, as we’ve exclusively published it back in January. This, however, is our first proper look at it, free of any annoying covers.
The image was shared on Twitter by automotive writer Bozi Tatarevic, who says it got it via a message and that GM didn’t share with him any embargoed material about the C8 Corvette.
Still not a fan of the steering wheel but the rest looks pretty nice. pic.twitter.com/REOLmbo00j

Unlike our (very) early look, the interior here is wrapped in black leather with red contrast stitching, and we can for the first time clearly see how the door-card design blends in with the rest of the dashboard.
The whole vibe “screams” Corvette, but at the same time it is like a radical departure in terms of quality and, of course, technology. The driver is basically wrapped by the dashboard, which leaves the passenger with just a few air vents. The C7 also does that, but the new C8 turns that up to 11.
The digital instrument cluster is expected to be fully configurable, with plenty of screen options depending on the selected mode and the driver’s preferences. The large touchscreen for the infotainment system looks pretty modern and premium, thanks to its glass surface and the metal detailing on the sides.
We’re not sure about the very long row of physical buttons running down the center console, though; these are the HVAC controls and their positioning give access to the passenger as well, which, we guess, is a good thing.
Anyway, let us know what you think about the interior of the new C8 Corvette and stay tuned for the big reveal later tonight, at 8 p.m. PDT.
