  • Fun C8 Reveal Video From Thursday, April 11th

    Pumped! Wonderful 1:23 video (but then again you all know that like you, over the top with today’s excitement. Video brought to our attention by, and with thanks to Keith Cornett (aka CorvetteBlogger). Thanks to “corvettemuseum” for creating the video.

    Watch this video in full screen with the slowest speed. You get to see a lot more details.

        As CorvetteBlogger pointed out, the car in today’s video seems very much like the Nurburgring C8’s from the second week of September. After that, they have been modified in lots of different ways, perhaps because fvs’ renderings were getting too close.

          yep...I see no real difference in these images from the Ring photos.

          no doubt there will be some surprises.


          I did note that small emblem that is on the scoop door handle is also on the mirror...

            It does scrape the splitter leaving the garage! Use the lift Tadge! ; )

            Why no sound?

              No sound because it is labeled as B-Roll. B-Roll never has sound with it, as it is meant to be played with sound from another source, i.e. A-Roll.

                  Hard to tell. The splitter may have cleared. However, I couldn't see any air dam. Wonder if the C8 will have an air dam?

                    It was certainly close - clearance is something we'll all need to be aware of in the future (even with the front end lift option).

                    Fun video by the way.

                      Rear glass blacked-out makes me hope engine is exposed.

                        cool ... thx for the video John. The side scoop area still seems odd. I wish we could have seen where Tadge actually activated that door button. But very nice

                          The C8 in the Video appears to have a glass or transparent roof. That transparent, removable(?), part is covered by plastic-camo. But the out side light can be observed to penetrate the camo-plastic and illuminate Mary and Thadge. Their faces glow in that light from above and exterior. Also in one brief part of the video , from a lower video camera angle, the inside of the roof can be seen. In that shot the exterior-above sourced light is seen to penetrate the roof. Cool. The interior of the roof glows. This model will be filled with light. Will it be adjustable from darker to lighter as need . Some of the Mclarens have passenger compartment "glass" top that can be adjusted to lighter, dark and darker by some sort of switch. Is that expensive or simple tech?

                          See .0:35 --0:39 and 0:54 ---0:57 in the video.

                            They are going to make us wait another 3 months. Not cool, GM, not cool! That's like 3 years for those of us suffering from CAD (Corvette Anticipation Disease). They don't even make a pill for it. Making fun of Porsche groupies on their forums isnt providing enough relief. Release the darn car already! I am starting to dream about camo print

                              SheepDog, that is really good news, and maybe I and many others would now consider the translucent top for the first time. Following your

                              timing recommendation, at .37 seconds, I captured this:
