Spy shooting the new Corvette was already abound, but in our title picture is a “spy” teaser from the company Chevrolet.

The first mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette — C8 — will debut eighteenth July 2019. This will be a turning point in the history of the model after several years of development of the production version and even decades of waiting, (if to speak about plans to replace the layout, going from the whole galaxy of concepts and prototypes).

Pre-production prototype Corvette C8 several times across photospin on the roads, and recently even went to the streets of new York (already 07.18.19 stickers on the doors), in order to drum up interest for the premiere.

In the early 1960s, engineer Zora Arkus-duntov, Creator of the first Corvette, considered a mid-engine layout as one of the options a sports car, and even built a prototype. But the conveyor Corvettes managed to go through seven generations, before the heirs of Zora decided to realize his dream into reality. How you perceive this change of paradigm fans model is a complex issue. Online you can find a lot of comments along the lines of “No, it’s not a Corvette”.

Spy survey does not allow to consider all details of the new Corvette, but much is already clear. However, no details do not play a significant role in the perception of the background that has changed the key proportions of the model.

The base Corvette C8 insiders promise aspirated 6.2 V8 466 HP, and middle-and older versions of biturbomotor 4.2 and 5.5, with a return of up to 860+ HP. Runs and unofficial information about a hybrid version with electric motors on the front axle and the total impact of the system in a thousand forces.

According to the latest third-party estimates, the basic version of the C8 will be sold for around $70 000 (for comparison, the “minimum” Corvette C7 is in the US $55 900), and the most powerful and a complete modification of the mid-engine monster will cost $170,000 and above (current ZR1 starts at $123 000). We add that the “seventh” Corvette will not be released simultaneously with “eight”, as expected. Recently GM CEO Mary Barra stated that this year “seven” will finish his career and the last sample goes to auction.

Splitter and air intakes at the “forty-fifth” (photo), oddly enough, look less aggressive than the younger model And 35. However, the Panamericana grille with vertical teeth makes clear — who is the top option.

Mercedes-AMG has pleased us with three events over the past few days. On the last weekend in the paddock “24 hours nürburgring” it showed the public a pre-production hot hatch A 45. Still painted colorful stripes car was disguised much less than previously seen samples.

The second news: the premiere of redesigned racing shell Mercedes-AMG GT3, whose sale to customer teams starting at the end of this year at a price of 399 000 euros. Externally, the newcomer easier to spot on the radiator grille: it has increased in size, and the vertical teeth are provided less frequently (them here two less than it was).

According to the publication Motor1.com A 45 will have two electronically controlled clutch that transmit traction to the rear wheels. Apparently, in their interactions and the secret announced drift mode, which is not expected from a car built on a FWD platform. The company itself about the design details of the hot hatch has not yet spoken, but very in detail told about the motor 2.0 M 139 — the most healthy in the world serial turboservice (421 HP, 500 N•m variations S and 387 HP, 480 N•m “in the database”). Premiere of the Mercedes A 45 is scheduled for July.

After road racing AMG GT has received new headlights and taillights, but more important than that the car is redesigned aerodynamic components (splitter, side wings and side skirts, rear bumper with diffuser). The promised increase in downforce.

Also at the Nurburgring, the Germans presented the new Mercedes-AMG GT3. Changes in the machine is aimed not only at improving outcomes, but also on cost reduction teams per season. Thus, the aspirated V8 6.3 now rarely need to touch (increased its survivability in race mode), and the power to redraw body parts in the bow to better protect the units in a collision, which reduces the cost of repairs after a racing incident.

In the cabin of the GT3 has a new rubberized coating on the steering wheel, improved drinking system and ventilation of the helmet.

Design optimization reduced the time required to change the settings of the splitter and anticrime that it is important for a quick pit stop. Implemented a new Drop system Start (automatic start of the engine when the “fall” of the machine with built-in pnevmomaketov). For the first time in the world, by the conviction of the company, in GT3 there was a system of automatic time recording operation of all components.

And this is a different model, civil. Curved wings kenardy installed not only on the front bumper, but even on the front fenders behind the wheels. Additional “blades” implanted in the front bumper. The machine promises to be interesting in terms of aerodynamics.

Simplified access to air filter and reduced the total number of threaded connections to facilitate the work of mechanics in the pits. Another bonus of the machine 2019: stronger luminous flux core and additional (for the 24-hour marathons) headlamps. The client team will appreciate these changes next season, but Mercedes will release a car for a few races already this year, for the final tests in “combat” environment.

Exhaust pipes changed the location but I can not vouch that this is the final version. Some footage of the tests suggest a very tightly tuned suspension.

The last while a curious rookie laps at the Nurburgring in camouflage film, where he shot paparrazi. It focused on the extreme track, but still road model named the Mercedes-AMG GT R EVO (the last two pictures in the news). She needs to be more powerful and faster than the supercar AMG GT R PRO (some commentators remember the traditional console Black Series, but insiders promise the EVO). Besides the obvious improvements of aerodynamics and other chassis characteristics to variations of EVO we should expect a growth of power biturbomotor 4.0 585 to 600-640 forces (roughly). The model will premiere or at the end of this year, or in 2020.
