    Someone came up on the next-generation Corvette driving in Detroit on a three-lane highway and got a proper video. Not only did they have their phone held sideways, but they also turned off the radio and lowered the window to capture the exhaust note from the C8 prototype that we estimate was probably traveling the speed limit if not a bit slower due to traffic.

    The driver of the mid-engine prototype may not have seen the cameraman in a truck who was rolling up on him on his left side as we see and hear the C8 Corvette suddenly accelerate and move over the right lane. Luckily, our driver that doing the filming also accelerates and we have this wonderful side view of the C8 headed down the road.

    You will want to turn this up!

        From that POV, C8 seems like a small, low profile looking, especially from the side. When he accelerated, the car didn't downshift.

          Thanks for posting. However, not exactly what I expected to hear in terms of the exhaust under acceleration.

            Phone's Mic is only good for short distance.

              I think his window was down. Compare the clarity of view thru the windshield vs the side window. Looks like the top of the passenger window can be seen recessed. Near the end, the passenger seat belt can be seen "fluttering" in the wind.

              Who knows what his NPP setting was. Sounds good!

                You're right and I was wrong. Removed my comment.

                    I thought that sounded great considering the road noise. He was also navigating through some traffic so I don't think he got on the throttle as much as he could have. The bigger question is how glorious that will sound right behind your head? Also, more importantly in the coupe will there be a way to lower the glass partition to hear the motor?

                      Interesting that the front caliper is red and the rear black ... a new option? Doubtful of course, but it is funny to see that.

                          I'm really starting to believe the side intake starting on the door is fake. Look at the sun's reflection here with the intake "panel cover". I'm not going to be surprised if whatever is underneath that freaking panel is going to make everyone have a completely different view of the car in an amazing way. It's like those panels are covering the biggest secret in the automotive industry and GM designed them to do exactly that.

                            Good catch. As few of the parts on any of the IVERS are production approved, not surprising that they contain some of this and some of that.

                              Whoa, either he didn't downshift or that DCT is wicked fast.

                              The camo is heavy and deep on this specimen.
