Step into a Z06 and you will immediately be aware of the low-end grunt that comes from Chevy’s legendary LS engine. As of 2019, the Z06 creates 650 lb-ft of torque at 3,600rpm which means they leap out of corners faster than a cheetah chasing prey...
C8 Corvette should look a whole lot like this computer-generated model of the mid-engine Chevy.
The video above comes to us from the kaldarleifar YouTube channel and it features a computer-generated rendering of what the artist believes is the mid-engine Corvette. This “C8 Corvette visualization” was created by a man named Bjorn Daniel Svavarssonand based on what we have seen in spy shots and videos of the mid-engine test mules, the real thing could look a great deal like this 3D rendering.
