Living in the UK, it’s easy to forget about Chevrolet, but we’ve heard that the C8 is coming across the ocean to our little island which has got our ears perked. I quite fancy one, and if you do too, then I’d highly suggest you go to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Unfortunately, it’s a bit far for me, but those of you in America who want a bit of fun in a mid-engined Corvette can head over there for four laps of their NCM Motorsport Park track.
For just $299 they’ll give you four laps around the track behind the wheel of the new C8 which itself starts at a measly $59,995. This is cheap for the car’s performance level, but it’s still a lot of money. so if you’re local dealer isn’t letting you have a test drive, a trip to Kentucky may be an averagely cheap way to have yourself a test drive. You can even take your children, as long as they’re over 14 years old.
The museum released a Facebook post on Tuesday letting us know that they’ve got seven Corvettes on order for the project.
If you can, make sure you head down to Kentucky to get yourself a ride as the C8 is one of the most innovative versions of the Corvette since its inception. Even if you don’t want to purchase one, give yourself the experience of this new mid-engined Chevrolet.
