The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has been teased ahead of its launch on July 18, this time shown hammering around a track.

The video, called Let's Go, starts with the late Zora Arkus-Duntov sitting in the CERV 1 prototype. Zora is credited as the 'father of the Corvette' and a long-time supporter of the move to mid-engined power.

There's more to the video, with short shots of famous Corvette concepts and prototypes, along with plenty of nods to the relationship between Chevrolet and American astronauts.

The rumour mill is turning relentlessly in the USA, given the hype surrounding anything Corvette-related. Car and Driver has reported the base C8 Stingray will be powered by a 373kW version of the existing 6.2-litre V8 engine, hooked up to an automatic transmission. It appears the manual may be dead.

After its initial launch, the Stingray will likely be joined by a range of faster, more focused variants.
