What would be a mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette goodness? We're less than one month away from the official auction, and the cat is far out of the bag. It's three states over currently holding up a convenience store for some catnip. The mid-engined Corvette is no secret. For one, it's a project more than half a century in the making with enough false starts to rival the Cincinnati Bengals. Two, prototypes and test mules were spotted long before General Motors even acknowledged it was developing such as Corvette. Add to countless discovered patents and trademarks, and never-ending stream of spy photos, videos, art installations – you get the point. Everyone knows it's coming.
Two new videos of the mid-engined Corvette have popped up providing no further details. However, in the one above, you can hear the Corvette start up. It's the letter, the video ending before the car drives off. The likely engine heard is GM's 6.2-liter V8 making 460 horsepower (343 kilowatts). Chevrolet will be unveil any other mid-engined Corvette than the entry-level version, even as rumors continue to swirl about more potent powertrains in the future.
The second video is not as thrilling as the first. It's another brief that shows mostly camouflaged Corvette cruising in traffic. At this point, it does feel like if General Motors is toying with fans and enthusiasts alike. The mid-engined Corvette is far from shy, with plenty of videos showing off the car.
Thankfully, we have less than a month before the official unveiling where GM will dish all the juicy details many have been speculating about. The National Corvette Museum is auctioning off two tickets for charity. The current bid is at $ 6,700 with just over five days left in the auction. Is it worth dropping six to the same room as the new mid-engined Corvette? Apparently, it is. Bidding started at $ 100. You could watch the live stream, from home, in bed, covered in Cheeto dust.
