2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Lowered on Volk T37 Wheels Looks Fresh

At least as far as the on-screen debut of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette goes, the headline figure of the machine is its starting price or around $60,000. Sure, optional extras will push that figure higher and the inevitable derivatives, such as the good old Z06, will even take it into another league. But still, sixty grand for a mid-engined supercar deserves a massive round of applause.

For the entry-level price of the C8 Stingray, you can get an Audi R8 (we need to stay in the mid-engined league here) that's about a decade old and while it also comes with a N/A V8, it's way down on power - the original R8 V8 delivered 420 PS when new, while the base C8 'Vette packs 490 hp (497 PS).

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.
