Heck, the mid-engined Corvette even looks like a steal when compared to what is one of the best performance bargains currently on the market, namely the C5 Corvette Z06 - you'll have to pay around $25,000 for a good example of the 405 hp toy, which comes from the late 1990s.
Of course, this kind of value for money means there's plenty of room to play with GM's new halo car. Make no mistakes, aftermarket developers will rush to upgrade the mid-engined Corvette like crazy. In fact, I can almost hear Hennessey announcing its multi-step C8 program, with a four-digit climax, of course.
For now, we'll have to make due with renderings portraying modded incarnations of the C8. In fact, it only took the Internet a few hours (from the online introduction of the supercar) to come up with such pixel play.
Check out the two renders above and you'll notice the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette lowered (of course) on custom wheels - pixel tip to Abimelec Design. So whether you'd choose the Retro Grand Sport (think C4) of the Volk T37, these images have something for you.

New mid-engine Corvette just dropped! Feels weird to write it, but it’s freaking awesome! Base is about $70,000 for what I’ve heard, its 490 hp and will do 60 mph in 2.8 seconds which means its VERY light. Naturally, I had to get my hands on it. Which one would you take? Retro Grand-Sport or lowered on Volk TE37s? . . . . . . . #chevrolet #corvette #c8 #midengine #corvettec8 #small #block #v8 #sportscar #na #grand #sport #volk #te37 #2d #render #photoshop
