Default [VIDEO] Mid-Engine C8 Corvette is Spotted and These Guys Go Nuts

The Mid-Engine C8 Corvettes are in Southwest Florida and these guys got over five minutes of video as they drive behind and sometimes side-by-side with the car.

The guys get a little too excited and one actually jumps out of the truck to try and grab a photo.

Short shifting auto (DCT?) like the other vids we've seen.

2nd video as it pulls away.

Driver makes a big effort to hide face ........ hmmm, wonder why?

You go Batman!


Interesting career and View.

The tarp does not seem to go straight across from rear light to rear light on this mule.

Seems to dip in the middle above the license plate. Very interesting

Thanks FVS. I agree fully. I know others have dismissed my perspective as wrong, but am still thinking what we are seeing in the middle is an air bleed spoiler (to reduce drag).

The rear definitely dips in the middle. May be a padding trick, but it sure dips. Top of rear corners appear to angle down as well.

The red one couldn’t be more terrible looking....
the creases under the camo cars don’t seem anything like it.

I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

Man I’d almost hate to be a Corvette mule/IVER driver. I get that people are really excited to see the car in person, and I know I’d act the same way, but the poor drivers are constantly bombarded with “paparazzi” in public. It must be difficult to get much work done on public roads whenever the drivers have to revert to some company protocols for evading photographers, hiding the car, hiding interior features, hiding their faces, or hiding the exhaust note all the time. They need to go hot-weather test the cars in the middle of the Namib desert to escape all the attention.

So, why the red handle? Just for the Camo ‘on and off’ or for even the fender(s)?

Could it be to screw threw a hole in a similar bracket like with the C7?
