The 2020 C8 Corvette isn’t just the most eagerly-awaited car from Chevrolet to launch in recent decades, if not ever, but it is also one of the most talked-about performance cars in recent history.
People love learning every single detail about the C8 Corvette, and when Chevrolet took the covers off the car late last week, everyone was mighty impressed with its specs and pricing. The styling, however, had its detractors…
In our experience, it is unfair to judge the looks of a car solely through press photos and it is far better to explore a new car in video or in person. This clip from the C8’s unveiling takes an up-close look a it and we think it is much more flattering of the car’s design than some photos.
Our favorite angle of the new ‘Vette must be the front end. There are a pair of sharp headlights with incorporated LED daytime running lamps as well as sharp air intakes and when the car is equipped with the available Z51 Performance Package, numerous gloss and carbon fiber parts are added.
The interior of the C8 is also easier to appreciate on camera. It looks spacious and the seats appear to adjust down low enough to provide occupants with superb seating positions.
Watching this video, you may also better appreciate what GM has done with the packaging of the 6.2-liter V8, fitting it directly behind the passenger cell and still having enough room left over for a large luggage compartment. Not something a lot of its competitors with a similar layout can say, right?
