Corvette C8 was revealed yesterday. I’m surprised it wasn’t posted here yet. 

FEDE351F-3768-4865-A9C6-392495C439AD.jpeg.3d8f5753024f1e8ee3a714f234fa42d9.jpeg

They have dropped the FR setup and went for a MR setup so maybe we’ll see a car that can handle and compete with the likes of Ferrari and Porsche instead of just going fast in a straight line.

Personally I kinda like how it looks. It’s a bastard Ferrari Lamborghini lovechild but there’s still enough Chevy in it for you to tell it’s a Corvette.

Too Ferrari-ish and not enough Corvette Or maybe its just the red paint?

They did, I am sure they had to, there was no space with the 6.2 L engine at the back.
