2020 Corvette C8 Is America’s Mid-Engine Sports Car For The Masses

After a flurry of last minute leaks, Chevrolet has officially unveiled the 2020 Corvette Stingray.

One of this year’s most highly anticipated models, the 2020 C8 is a revelation as it’s the first Corvette to adopt a mid-engine design. This decision has been decades in the making and it’s the final realization of Zora Arkus-Duntov’s dream.

Looking pretty much as expected, the 2020 Corvette has an aggressive front fascia with a triangular insert that is flanked by large air intakes. A small spoiler resides below, while there’s a stylish hood and slender headlights above.

The sporty styling continues further back as the car has a rakish windscreen, aerodynamic side skirts and sculpted bodywork that channels air into two massive side scoops. Other notable features include a compact greenhouse, muscular rear fenders and a double bubble roof.

Continuing to the rear, there’s a ventilated engine cover with a glass rear window that provides a glimpse of the Corvette’s new V8 engine. Above the window is a camera which sends video to a digital rearview mirror.

Out back, there’s a ventilated rear bumper and stylish taillights that feature angular accents. Other notable highlights include a compact spoiler, a minimalist diffuser and a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system.
