Chance Highway Encounter with 2020 Corvette Prototype

Near Production Prototype Z51 Stingray Mightily Impresses

Corvette fan Brian Jones was headed south on the I-65 towards Bowling Green when he had a chance encounter with this blacked-out and super stealthy C8 prototype. By pure chance, Brian then exited the interstate to grab some lunch only to find the very same Corvette sitting in a fast-food parking lot… Bearing manufacturer plates and a red “emergency” button inside the cabin, you can easily tell we’re dealing with a near-production prototype that belongs to Chevrolet.

Looking a little bit closer it became apparent to Brian that this was not just a standard C8 prototype, but rather one equipped with the vaunted Z51 performance package. Easily identifiable by the aggressive rear spoiler and other performance and aerodynamic upgrades, like the front spoiler and the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires wrapping those black wheels. If you’re not a big fan of the trim piece shaped like a boomerang on the side scoops, black is probably the color to go for since it makes it considerably less visible as it blends nicely with the rest of the body. As far as the interior, it appears we’re looking at a C8 with the Adrenaline Red cabin finish.
