Concours USA

  1. A GM spokesperson confirmed to C/D that the Chevrolet C8 Corvette will appear in Plymouth, Michigan, at the Concours d'Elegance of America event.
  2. The appearance is part of a public seminar featuring GM design chief Michael Simcoe to be held on Saturday, July 27, but the Corvette will also be viewable on concours day: Sunday, July 28.
  3. Classic cars from Ferrari, Bentley, and Cadillac, among many other marques, will be in abundance at the annual event.
General Motors vice president for global design Michael Simcoe will present a public seminar discussing the design challenges and processes behind development of the next-generation C8 Chevy Corvette on Saturday, July 27, in one of many events surrounding the 2019 Concours d'Elegance of America in suburban Detroit. The mid-engined sports car is being revealed in California on July 18, and this event is likely to be the first opportunity for the public to see the new Corvette. Also at the seminar will be other GM execs and designers, including former Corvette design chief Tom Peters. The mid-engined Corvette will stick around for concours day on Sunday, July 28, GM confirmed.

Good, I'll know where to not go so my eyes don't burn and fall out.

I'm a vocal hater of the C8, mid-engine cars, and cars without chome wheels, manuals, traverse leaf springs or usable storage. Oh and of terribly designed ergonomically poor interiors.

This is a great show, and with the C8 being there I won't miss it. Weather looks great for the weekend. Who else will be there??

Looking at making a trip to see the C8 since I have a deposit down and I'm not totally sold on it yet. Does anyone know if we will be able to see it on Saturday without purchasing the GM seminar tickets or would Sunday be a better bet?
