R/C car maker Traxxas now offers an officially-licensed miniature version of the C8 Chevy Corvette. The ultra-realistic model rides on a customized 4-Tec 3.0 chassis with a longer and wider chassis made specifically for the mid-engine Vette. While it looks exactly like the real car, this one has an all-wheel drivetrain.

We spent a couple of days in the Nevada desert testing out the mid-engined 2020 Corvette Stingray, and yes, it lives up to all of the hype. You can read our in-depth review on 95octane, or you could stay here and find out our Top 10 reasons that the C8 is a fantastic sports car.
The mid-engine C8 Corvette Stingray will also be getting a drop-top variant. While it loses the see-through engine compartment for its powerful V8, it gains a retractable hardtop that seamlessly hides at speeds up to 30mph. Plus, it weighs just 77 lb more than the coupe, and still has enough space to travel with two sets of golf clubs.
The C8 Stingray is the first mid-engine ‘Vette ever, packing a 495hp V8 engine behind its passenger compartment. Its aggressive design features a shorter hood, a wider rear, and big side air intakes. With the ZR1 Performance Pack, which upgrades brakes, suspension, cooling, and exhaust, it can do 0-to-60 mph in under 3 seconds.
Simply the best Corvette yet. It’s got a 460hp 6.2L V8 with a dry-sump oil system, bigger aero, and grippier tires for amazing cornering. With the Z07 package, it does 0-60 in 3.6s, brakes 60-0 in <100ft, and 1.2g lateral acceleration. Check out our first drive review on 95octane.
