Chevrolet is continuing to hand feed us tiny details about the mid-engine C8 Corvette’s debut. The latest bit of information comes from an e-mail invitation sent to media, which the Mid-Engine Corvette Forum published on Tuesday. In the invite, Chevrolet names Orange County, California, as the location for the mid-engine C8 Corvette‘s debut. As Corvette Mike Anaheim is in Orange County, you bet we will be bringing you updates as they happen.
There is also a new teaser from Chevrolet that, among other things, flashes through Corvette history. The video opens with Zora Arkus-Duntov, the father of the Corvette, also an accomplished race car driver, getting ready to hit the track.
It is expected that only a base model C8 will be at the reveal. It will most likely come with an upgraded version of the current 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine with about 500 horsepower and a new dual-clutch automatic. Additional variants, possibly being a 1,000-hp hybrid model and a mid-range twin-turbo 4.2-liter Cadillac Blackwing V8 producing around 600-hp, will come in future releases, just like GM did with the C7.
Trades accepted. Excellent financing.
