The New Mid-Engine Corvette C8.R Caught Testing



In recent weeks we have seen photos of the 2020 Chevy Corvette C8.R testing in a camo livery. We have the first video footage of the C8.R captured at Sebring by YouTube user Lanky Turtle. The footage shows the the latest mid-engine GM creation at night lapping the mid-Florida infamous race track for some winter testing laps. Chevy has not officially announced when the program will start competing in the IMSA GTLM and WEC GTE.
We believe we won’t see the C8.R until the 2020 season with the Roar Before the 24 in Daytona less than 3 weeks away. So expect the C8.R to set its’ debut at the 2020 Daytona 24 Hour Race
What you would not expect is that the mid-engine sound is more like the new Ferrari 488 GTE with the new turbo platform that muffles that loud high revving sound.
