Two Chevrolet Corvette C8 engineering test cars impounded, drivers arrested for street racing

Supercars are tested to extremes before they make it to showrooms, but this probably isn’t what General Motors had in mind when two engineers took a pair of yet-to-be-released Corvette C8s for a late night blast through the middle of the week. Police in Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA – where the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette will be made – stopped two engineering test cars after they were allegedly street racing and exceeding the posted 45mph (72kmh) speed limit by more than 26mph (42kmh).

2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car unveiled

The Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car has been unveiled alongside the Stingray convertible. Designed for the GT Le Mans racing series, the C8.R follows the mid-engine format of the road-going Corvette range. While the race car bears a very close visual resemblance to the street-legal coupe, practically every exterior panel looks to be unique. The front and rear wheel arches are wider, and there are new wing mirrors, latches for the bonnet and rear engine cover, and plenty of exposed screws.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette to have 'untunable' ECU - report

The eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette will be a radical departure from all of its predecessors, especially under the skin where everything is all new. Sources have told Muscle Cars and Trucks the new Corvette will use a new encrypted electronic control unit (ECU). While encrypted ECUs aren't new, the eighth-generation Corvette will also debut General Motors's new CAN bus electrical platform, which prioritises cybersecurity.

Mitsuoka Rock Star unveiled

The Mitsuoka Rock Star has been revealed in Japan, and it's a remarkably good recreation of the second-generation Chevrolet Corvette based on the current Mazda MX-5. It's certainly easier to love than some of Mitsuoka's other creations, like the Orochi mid-engine sports car, and various Jaguar-inspired models based on the Nissan Micra. Built to celebrate the company's 50th birthday, the Rock Star has a completely unique body, with the exception of the doors and windscreen.
