Though the next-generation 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 won’t officially debut until July, it made a brief appearance at the Michelin National Corvette Museum Bash in April. Coated in a camouflage paint job, the Corvette C8 made a big impression on attendees.
The Corvette C8, a mid-engine version of the beloved luxury sports car meant to appeal to a broader range of buyers, was first confirmed in April when General Motors CEO Mary Barra rode it to a charity gala and announced its upcoming release. Shortly after, the Corvette Instagram page posted a photo implying the C8 would debut on July 18.
Corvette fans have been speculating on the development of a mid-engine Corvette for years, and since it was officially announced, rumors have been flying about what its specs will look like. Chevy hasn’t released any info, but Car and Driver suspects the Corvette C8 will come with a 6.2-liter V8 engine paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission for a whopping 500 horsepower.
