While the new generation of Corvette is about to land on American roads in 2020, manufacturers of model cars also take the subject to bring us the new C8 to our displays…
Or not! Indeed, this new generation has not finished yet unleash the passions. What’s fault ? Well it is obvious: the architecture of the car changes radically, with a central engine. No more Corvette with endless hood. Sacrilege for some, necessity for others, Chevrolet has indeed decided this radical change to improve the performance of the car, especially on the race track (and the balance should actually be positive!).
The Corvette C8 soon to scale 1:18!
But let’s go back to our modelcars. TopSpeed (TSM) is therefore the first to unsheathe 1:18 scale miniature version of the Corvette C8. This manufacturer produces resin models and is positioned in mid-range.
For this first version, the choice was made of a sober black livery and Midnight Silver bands running along the car (an option billed close to $1000 on the real one, for information). This one is unfortunately very little visible on the images of the prototype.
This silver note is also found in the outline of the engine glass and especially along the large side air intake. The TopSpeed’s Stingray has on five-spoke rims (19″ in the front and 20″ in the rear) with red calipers (it works every time). Finally, do not forget the Z51 spoiler.
Let’s hope that TopSpeed, or another manufacturer, will offer us a slightly more exciting version than this black version (but that will not be long!).
This 2020 Stingray model car will be available in the first quarter of 2020 (at the same time as the real one, hopefully!).
