Description

The officially licensed Corvette C8 chronicles the full development story behind Chevrolet’s re-imagined sports car with an engaging, detailed text and photography from GM’s archives and Corvette team members.

Corvette is the halo car for Chevrolet and General Motors. Though not its highest volume seller, its importance to the company cannot be overstated. Thus each new generation is sweated by Chevy’s designers, engineers, marketing staff, and executives to ensure that it sets the bar higher than the preceding version.

With the eighth generation, Chevrolet has done more than raise the bar or move the goalpost—they’ve torn down the stadium and started from scratch. For the first time ever, the new Corvette features a mid-engine configuration. Though Corvette engineers have experimented with this engine placement in the past, 2020 marks the first time GM has committed it to production cars.

Corvette already has prodigious power on tap, but its front-engine configuration puts certain limitations on its handling and traction. A mid-engine Corvette takes the battle to supercar rivals like Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren.

It's the story every Corvette fan needs to read.
