    Rendered Widebody C8 Corvette Shows Potential of Mid-Engine Layout

    One of the criticisms we initially heard as the C8 Corvette was revealed is how mid-engine cars all look so similar. That may be true to the casual observer but we’ve come to appreciate how the various manufacturers can give their vehicles their own unique design philosophy that appears across their lineup.

    Chevrolet has released the Stingray in both Coupe and Convertible form and if history repeats, the team will be launching another two to four models over the next five years. While we wait for these new Corvettes to appear, we can live vicariously through the digital artists who have been rendering their own versions of Corvette widebodies and future variations.

    One design that we find interesting comes from the Instagram account of arnold_designwho posted several renditions of an Elkhart Lake Blue widebody in which he reworked the front fascia and then really widened the rear which offered additional venting opportunities to the main side intakes. And then there are those Rose Gold forged wheels accented with matching blue brake calipers which look fantastic against the Elkhart Lake Blue body.

    The rear shot is actually my favorite part of the render as the rear vents are moved lower and it helps to clean up the look. Of course, the round tailpipes are a given and in fact, I find myself somewhat nostalgic now that they are gone.

    As you can see, I have decided to redesign the whole front bumper. Borrowing design cues from C3 and C4 Corvette and adding my own spin to it. Giving it a mean Stingray face 😁. I wanted to give the overall shape an OEM look.

    The above renders are very cool. I hope that our forum renders extradiors FVS and Chazcron will soon show us their versions of what is next for the C8. There was nobody closer with their renders than these 2 great artists.

      Nice work! IMO the widened rear fenders don't look good, but boy, I agree with Keith about his favorite rendering being the rear facia. What an improvement with venting that actually blends into the design nicely. Will be fun to see others go at this.

        Looks very good to me. The wide body cars should look very aggressive like this. Nice render.

          Sweet color too. Best rendering, so far, in my book.

            Wow. That improves the rear view 100%. ****.

              I also like the rear fascia much better; with the vents placed/designed lower and longer.
