2019 Mid-Engined Chevrolet Corvette Spied Grabbing Food



Chevrolet test drivers are human too and sometimes the call of golden arches is just too strong to resist. That’s where a person named Josh B caught the camouflaged Corvette test mule grabbing a bite, at a McDonalds drive-thru in Cadillac, Michigan.


What we’re seeing could be a near-production prototype of mid-engined Corvette C8. Most of its body remains hidden though the guys at CarScoops were able to make out a “more aerodynamic front fascia with shorter overhangs.”



The rear has undergone some changes as well to produce a lengthened tail, circular taillights, center-mounted third brake light, deep diffuser, and a quad exhaust system. There’s even a set of new lightweight alloy wheels, possibly production-spec, and what seems to be air intake ducts near the door handle.

Though no official confirmation about the next-generation Corvette’s powertrain has been released, previous leaks suggests a 6.2-liter dual-overhead cam V8 engine, which was trademarked as LT5 V8. Rumor has it, the engine could deliver an impressive 750 hp. Also unconfirmed is the possibility of Chevy dropping GM's 10-speed torque converter gearbox for a dual-clutch box produced by Tremec.

Expected to debut after the new Corvette ZR1 or next January's Detroit Auto Show, pricing could range from $65,000 and $95,000.

My excitement for the new corvette is mounting and the factory wheels are very agreeable. Perhaps offered in a different color like gunmetal grey.

Seen a rendering of how it could look once the cover are off and its impressive to say the least and a product that will resonate well with the new Corvette buyer demographic. Hopefully older buyers will find enough things to like, but its still going to be difficult to adjust.

It was spotted once again, though with what looks like the same amount of camouflage. Maybe the headlights are easier to see in this shot? Can see something like LED accents above what should be the main headlights.
