Listen to the surprising sound of new Corvette C8.R

The mid-engined beast was spotted at the Sebring Raceway doing some laps for testing reasons. I too would test the hell out of it if I would be a test driver... "no, still not sure about that. I'm afraid I need to do another lap". Some people have jobs I would actually pay for to be allowed to do them (if I would have any money in the first place).

The day the Corvette C8 will be revealed to the public, the fun one can have driving a car will increase about 100%. At least, that is my personal assumption.

This new spy video uploaded on YouTube by Lanky Turtle lets you hear the sound of the new Corvette C8.R.

  • Delusions abound in the comments. No surprise here though. If any of the commenters have read anything about what GM is developing they'd know the details already. GM has been devoloping a 5.5L DOHC flat plane crank V8 for awhile now for the forthcoming C8 Corvette. And also, as in a page out the book of Ford. GM and Pratt & Miller are developing the C8 road car and the C8.R racer at the same time. But please continue to wish for things that won't happen. That'll work!

  • Sounds like every IMSA GT class car: NSX, Huracan, Audi R8, McLaren, ... but without the turbo noise. As a v8 fan, I’m underwhelmed here! Don’t label me against the euro trend of smaller displacement, I like that too, just enjoy the sound of the current Vette!
