C8 Corvette Crossed Flag Logo Start-Up Animation, New Logo Leaked

The folks at GM-Trucks.com got their hands on a short video showing the start-up animation of the upcoming mid-engine C8 with the newest iteration of the familiar crossed flags logo that has adorned every Chevrolet Corvette.

We know that the General Motors has been working on a mid-engine sports car for a very long time and it is widely expected that this mid-ship machine will be the next generation of the Chevrolet Corvette. Provided that these expectations prove to be true, the C8 will usher in a new era of American performance cars and based on this short video, the new generation Corvette will come with a new logo.

Thanks to the folks at GM-Trucks.com, we have an early look at what is believed to be the new C8 Corvette logo courtesy of the infotainment start-up animation.

C8 Start-Up Screen
The image above is a screen grab of the video from the GM-Trucks.com YouTube channel which we have embedded below. The crossed flags are situated at a sharper angle than the current version, with an elongated point extending down in the middle. Of course, the left flag is a checkered flag while the right-side flag has the Chevrolet bowtie and the fleur-de-lis.

The start-up screen also has the Corvette name in what we can assume is the new font logo for the C8 Chevrolet Corvette. The lettering is different from what Chevrolet uses for the C7 and most notably, it says “Corvette by Chevrolet”, which is something that we have not seen in the past.

Check out the video below for a closer look at the C8 Corvette start-up animation from GM-Trucks.com. While we understand that they are an unlikely source, the site is a trusted and proven source of good General Motors information, leading me to believe that this is legit.
