One of the first manufacturers to replicate the new Chevrolet Corvette C8 is GT Spirit. This August release finds the OEM Rapid Blue mated to exterior stripping with additional decal work. Some are still on the fence with the C8’s styling, and we are too. As for the move to rear motor placement, it was about time. This one from GT Spirit is a limited edition release of 999 pieces. GT Spirit also adds a little affordability to the ever-increasing price point within the hobby but this comes at a price, the model is sealed.
As for the model, it is a typical GT Spirit execution. The paintwork is solid overall, however, we would have foregone the multi-colour stripes over the front fenders. As for the overall model correctness, it is very good. Again, the styling of the new C8 is still debated… Grille work front and rear are crafted with solid bits and the rear, chrome exhaust tips look a little too bulky in appearance.
What can be seen of the motor is decent, and again typical of static representations. Inside the interior is pleasantly equipped, the odd and bulky centre console is present too along with fabric seat-belt. No flocking is present here. If you are in the market for a C8 Corvette replica look into the GT Spirit piece. If Rapid Blue exterior doesn’t work for you there are other colours available too. Enjoy the pics!
