C8 Corvette Turned Into Crazy Off-Roader

Design / 15 Comments

This is one mean looking off-roader.

With Ford expanding the Mustang range with the Mach-E SUV, it was perhaps inevitable that some people have been wondering if a high-performance SUV version of the Chevrolet Corvette is in the pipeline. There's no doubt that a Corvette SUV would be controversial, but former GM Vice President Bob Lutz believes there's a strong business case for Chevrolet to build one.

Chevrolet hasn't announced any plans to build a Corvette SUV, but this has nevertheless inspired render artists to create some crazy digital designs imagining what a Corvette SUV could look like if it was given the green light. Pictured is what it could be like as a crazy off-road variant.

We've already seen what a Corvette SUV could look like, but this design takes a different approach. Created by Adam Dao, this render imagines the C8 Corvette as a hardcore off-roader. The styling retains the same design elements as the C8 Corvette sports car, but a raised ride height, and chunky wheels and tires enable the Corvette to tackle tricky terrain with ease.

Other enhancements include an aggressive off-road bumper, LED strips, and plastic cladding added to the wheel arches, while underbody protection prevents the jacked-up Corvette getting damaged during wild off-road adventures.

The result is one mean-looking off-roader that we would love to see be turned into a reality. Someone out there must be crazy enough to build this. It reminds us a bit of the Korres Project 4, a Greek supercar concept that similar proportions, and could do incredible things off-road.

Under the hood, the C8 Corvette off-roader would likely retain the road car's 6.2-liter V8 that produces 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. In the road car, this setup enables the C8 Corvette to hit 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 194 mph. Pricing for the C8 Corvette starts at $58,900, but it's safe to say these off-road modifications would increase the price considerably.
