Zane Merva Executive Editor / Publisher - GM-Trucks.com Februrary 7th, 2019 Yesterday we brought you an exclusive look at the new logo for the 2020 C8 Corvette in a digital high-resolution format. Although the logo had been previously rendered through a leaked key fob passing through FCC certification, GM-Trucks.com gave you the very first official version of the emblem in digital format. Today, we've got part two and it's even better: A brand new, never before seen, blacked out version of the 2020 Corvette's iconic emblem The corresponding gauge cluster startup animation Your first look at the brand new Corvette script First things first, what's a startup animation? Well, these days a lot of new GM products use an LCD display in the gauge cluster, or even use a display as the entire gauge cluster. The C7 Corvette (and now C8) uses a large 8-ish inch screen for most of the gauge cluster. When you open the door, the gauge cluster "starts up" showing an animation, usually with the Chevrolet logo or in this case the Corvette's logo and script. Our 2019 Silverado LTZ has a Chevy Logo animate on it's 4 inch gauge cluster display. This is a C7's Gauge Cluster. See that huge screen? The C8 is going to have a variation of that. Maybe the same, maybe larger. Interesting to note, this crossed flags emblem is not the same as the logo we leaked yesterday. Instead of a chrome surround it sports a blacked out trim. It looks mean, nasty, and one may presume it just may be destined for a performance variant of the Corvette. Is this the emblem for the rumored Zora model? We won't comment specifically on how we obtained this animation. We can say it was collected from publicly available file by a third party and passed along to us. This is the gauge cluster start up animation for the up-level (Zora?) 2020 C8 Corvette Here's a closer look at that blacked out emblem variation And here's a closer look at the 2020 Corvette Logo Script- which has evolved from it's C7 form Here's the C7 logo and script for comparison What do you think? Are you excited for the Corvette to go mid-engine? Do you think Chevy's graphical updates to the logo and script are living up to the hype of the 2020 Corvette?
