The official unveiling of the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette C8 isn’t set to happen until July 18. However, attendees at this past weekend’s Michelin National Corvette Museum Bash received an unprecedented look at the Corvette C8, as the model made an appearance at the event.

Of course, the new Corvette C8 was decked out in a camouflaged exterior coating, which obscured some of the finer design details of the vehicle. Furthermore, the Corvette never came to a complete stop as it drove by. Nevertheless, it’s one of the best looks that anybody has gotten of the newest version of the Corvette.

You can witness the Corvette C8’s appearance at the Michelin National Corvette Museum Bash by watching the video below:

The Corvette C8’s appearance comes right off the heels of GM’s announcement that it will add more than 400 hourly jobs and a second shift to its Bowling Green Assembly plant, where the Corvette C8 is set to be produced. These new jobs will increase the Bowling Green location’s workforce to more than 1,300 active workers.

The Bowling Green Assembly plant has been the home of Corvette production ever since it first opened back in 1981. Bowling Green, Kentucky, also serves as the home for the National Corvette Museum.
