Rapid Blue 2020 Corvette Spotted in Traffic, Looks Stunning

The C8 Chevrolet Corvette continues to keep is busy over the web. And while we've already discussed the offivial unveiling of the mid-engined 'Vette, along with a real-world sighting of a Torch Red example of the supercar, the time has come to check out more traffic sightings of the GM halo car.

In fact, I've brought along a compilation, one that includes an extended take on the said Torch Red appearance, along with two other C8 Corvettes - these allow one to choose between two shades that fall under the same category, namely Rapid Blue (the car in the screenshot above) and Elkhart Lake Blue.

The bang-for-buck ration of the 2020 Corvette has swept the automotive real off its feet. After all, how often do you get 495 hp coming from the middle section of a machine that kicks off at around $60,000 and can play the 0 to 60 mph game in under three seconds?

Of course, this has all sorts of implications. For instance, while the Corvette Stingray isn't a Ferrari rival by any means, the affordability of the American supercar might change certain aficioandos' perception of Prancing Horses.

Then there's the effect the mid-engined Corvette might have on Chevy's go-gast lineup. The financial side of the newcomer might add fuel to the fire started by the rumors of GM preparing to axe the Camaro once the current generation goes to sleep.

Speaking of which, forum chat mentions that some of those who had ordered the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 have cancelled the deal after the C8 Corvette was introduced.

Now, if the new 'Vette is like the C7, it might be able to deliver a wide range of feelings and emotions, but its list of assets won't include the organic character of a proper muscle car. Until we get to find out more about the driving experience delivered by the C8, you can check out the said examples in the clip below.
