2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Spotted Heading For GM’s Proving Grounds


The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette can’t come soon enough, but thankfully we have plenty of chances to get a glimpse of what it will look like with the occasional spy shots and speculative renderings.

The most recent sighting of a mid-engine Corvette prototype occured on January 8 in Detroit and it was a pretty interesting one. Chuck Jackson, an Assignment Editor for Local4News in Detroit, noticed the car on the move and took a photo and a short video of it.

He posted both on Twitter and wrote that the Vette prototype was headed toward GM’s Milford Proving Grounds. Unsurprisingly, the Corvette C8 (which some believe could debut as soon as next week at the Detroit Auto Show) is still fully wrapped in camouflage. The foil does a good job of disguising the details, in addition to the added foam and other fake lines added by GM to obscure the real design.

A bonus compared to previous sightings is that the photo gives us a look inside the car, revealing a flat-top (and presumably) flat-bottom steering wheel. The dash is completely covered, however, and we can’t get a peek at the instrument panel either.

Still, it’s great to see the Corvette C8 is up and running, despite the rumored six-month delay caused by an electrical issue. Even with all the camouflage, the Vette is a spectacular sight on the road and we hope it will be even more so when it sheds all the unnecessary layers of disguise.

Until then, here are some fresh renderings we’ve come across on the MidEngineCorvetteForum, courtesy of Chazcron and Björn Daniel Svavarsson.
