The First Ever Photos of the Mid-Engine Corvette




The first photos showing a production-spec mid-engine Chevy Corvette prototype have surfaced.



This is one of the first production-spec prototypes for the new mid-engined car, evidenced by its revised stance and large opening over the mid-mounted engine. Eventually, a glass engine cover will fill up this space, giving this car the exotic feel of a Ferrari, the Italian brand that Chevy has been using to benchmark its new performance machine.
According to the spy photographer, these photos were taken from a mile away using a long lens setup and a 50.3 megapixel DSLR. So far, GM has been careful to keep the car top secret by running it only at night, making this sighting all the more rare.

The C8 is shaping up to be a real Ferrari killer. Can't wait to drive a mid-engined 'Vette -- the weight distribution should be even better, improving handling in the nose.

Under those camo-panels, it looks insane lol. So aggressive with hard cut lines and edges. I'm sure it'll be rounded out a bit but I hope it has some nice body lines.

some people are saying that the spied car is a Cadillac and not a corvette. What do you guys think?

Highly doubt it. The rear tail lights from the other pictures where you can see them resemble the iconic Corvette lights.
