  • New ME MPG Track Pictures

    Thanks to Motor1 for these pictures at GM’s Milford Proving Grounds. The headlights look pretty finalized, and the last remnants of front grille’s surround “fish lips” are thankfully gone.

    Noticing the driving waving at the camera. Thanks to Corvette_Nut for surfacing them for us all. For more, similar pictures:

    Motor1 has entitled these pictures, “Mid-Engined C8 Corvette Spied Track Testing In Base Model Trim”

        Awesome clean look, I'm smitten for sure. I wonder what options are for the front license plate in states that require it.

          I wonder how good/bad the visibility is for the driver. I'm sure the front visibility is better that previous gens, as the front hood is much shorter and drops quickly from the windshield. but wondering how the rear and rear-sides are.

            Looks like the outside mirrors stick out quite a ways so the side view should be ok. Supposed to have rear view camera so that should solve that problem.
            There is a madness to my method!

                I still like it without the rear spoiler. And I like those wheels (with John's special brush to clean them!). Wish July would hurry up and get here ...

                  GM is telling all interest that check book time is soon coming. The photographers presence is known to the operator. while watching the road, the operator spots and waves to the camera. GM security apparently acquiesces or approve. Probably official press release photos. The car is in less camo than 2 weeks ago. Stripping stocking, then garter belt, next glove and skinny dipping July 18. After the look is known there will be interesting details discovered.

                    With the camera on the top of the halo bar or on the top of the rear window, using the camera/rear view mirror system originated in Cadillac a couple of years ago, i believe we will have better visibility than in our C7 coupes. Also BSP new system.

                        I think everyone will be very thankful for the rear view camera / mirror. Looks to me like the view rearward will be worse than the C7s. But the rear view camera, and likely blind spot / cross traffic warning will help a lot.

                          I think the front bumper area is still fake. IMO. Getting closer to the day when all the guessing will be over.

                              Looking at the photos of the car on the track, specifically at the portion of the scoop that comes onto the door, I'm thinking that the forward part of the scoop shown, the "blade" that I've highlighted in yellow, is fake. And that the actual body work is onloy the portion above that. That makes the "tooth" at the top of the door much smaller than we've been thinking.
