Mid-Engined Chevrolet Corvette C8.R Spied Night Testing at Sebring


Chevy has been withholding any further information on the car as neither it nor its road-going counterpart has yet been revealed, creating loads of anticipation from the American motorsport faithful.


Now, though, the C8.R has been caught running at Florida's famous Sebring International Raceway, allowing us another look at the model's first-ever mid-engined iteration.


One rumor is that it may have a smaller displacement unit with dual overhead cams and forced induction rather than the old-school blueprint that Chevrolet has used in the Corvette since 1955.


Outside of the engine note, there are some looming details including the basic shape of the car's front and rear fascias.


Despite the glare, there are a few opportunities in the video to observe the Porsche-fighter's face, dropping potential hints at the model's final form.


It's unclear if the C8.R will partake in 2019 competition, though The Drive has reached out to Chevrolet for comment and will update the article with any new information.
