The checkered flag is a win, and if you have the winning flag in your logo you must have a history of podium finishes built into your pedigree. The Corvette C8 is the eighth generation of sports cars manufactured by Chevrolet. If you are wondering if this is the first-ever mid-engine vehicle from GM we can quickly remind you of the 80’s nostalgic Pontiac Fiero introduced in 1984. The joke was that it came with a Huey Lewis and the News album cassette pre-installed.
The C8 debuted in 2019 as the “Ferrari Killer”. From the power to the weight the Vette outperformed its opponent. The 490HP 6.2L crossplane OHV V8 efficiently delivers power to the tarmac with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. This powerhouse is mounted in the middle of an all-aluminum body and matched with aluminum suspension components. Yes, independent suspension with rear axles made of forged aluminum.
When the buzz of this monster was going around we immediately knew we needed to add this to the Delinte Tire vehicle quiver. And of course, it wasn't going to stay stock. We collaborated with premium brands to match up with this American exotic.
Here is what we did with the help of Tunersource:
Forgestar F14 Wheels - Front 20x9 and Rear 22x12
Delinte D7 Ultra High-Performance Tire - Front 255/30/20 and Rear 305/25/22
MagnaFlow Chevrolet Corvette XMOD Series Cat-Back Performance Exhaust System
ADRO Full Carbon Fiber Kit
We would like to thank all the partners who help make this build happen. In normal enthusiast fashion, we did a midnight run to Las Vegas for some Mid-Engine Madness!
