Corvette C8 Spied in new video

A new spy video surfaced showing the new C8 rocking what we haven't seen it with before, a spoiler. Unfortunately its nothing that would represent a higher trim C8 as its just a lip spoiler.

'It looks just like a Ferrari.' That's basically the same sentiment that most of us share from the renderings and concepts that we've been seeing.

There's been mention of a lot of active aero tech in the C8, so that could also find its way into a spoiler on one of the top end trims. From Car and Driver

Next up on the C8’s potential docket of aero tricks is an active spoiler (that, in addition to rising and tilting to enhance downforce or act as an air brake, can slide fore and aft.

Its a good strategy if you're trying to move these at volume like the Nissan GT-R and then upsell people on some aggressive ZR1 styling

While its sort of disappointing that GM isn't taking this opportunity to explore their own unique design for the C8, being mistaken for a Ferrari isn't the worst thing. Look at what dealers are charging for 20 year old 360's.

Chevy learned from Acura that even when they actually try, the product can be a massive flop. Its risky business.

This is why it would be safer for Chevy to offer the C8 alongside the current C7 rather than replacing it. They don't really need to place it under Corvette badging either, even though I'm sure they will.

Yes, messing with a classic formula is never a good thing however the C7 has its own sales concerns that could be addressed with the C8. Its a tough call.

Chevy has already announced a Final Edition of the C7 in Europe, suggesting they are wrapping up it's production. Its looking like a proper sendoff for both the GS and Z06, though it might be restricted to that market. https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a2...dition-europe/
