The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette is the latest iteration of an American icon. Pardon the hype, but the Corvette is as much part of modern culture as it is an exceptionally fine sports car. This is the second year of the Corvette’s eighth generation, which is why it’s called the C8 for short.
Although not every generation has been exceptionally fine, they’ve all been special. The C8 Corvette is both. After 67 years of having an engine up front, this model’s V8 is mid-mounted, just like those archetypal Ferrari and Lamborghini supercars.
