We’ve seen them on the beach. Now it only makes sense the owners of C8 Corvettes would want to take them into the water from time to time, right? GM does some incredible testing to make sure that Corvettes don’t ingest any water, a testimony that Chevy did, in fact, consider they might be driven in the rain. We wouldn’t suggest doing this kind of sea-faring testing of your new C8 though!
Apparently, the operator of this black C8 Corvette didn’t really care if his C8 got wet as he drove it through a flooded street in Miami, Florida. As we’re watching the video recently posted on Reddit, questions like, ‘how many miles are on that car?’, ‘How big of a change was there in the engine’s oil temps?’, or even, ‘What WAX does he use?’ rise to the surface like the ensuing oil slick this Corvette must have left in the newly-formed community pool. The biggest question of all is whether the owner of this car knew about this as it was happening?
In our world of instant selfies, it’s understandable that cellphones would be in hand quicker than the new Z06 could hit redline, but the fact that two videos rose to the surface from two different angles, makes us wonder if this wasn’t the ultimate “watch this!” moment? And there are plenty of onlookers at the “finish line” when the C8 finally surfaces.
And, we have the TikTok talents of Supercar Ranch to thank for this wonderful variant of the event which is set to the theme song of the hit movie “Jaws.” You can also head over to Supercar Ranch’s TikTok and put in a request for the video posted with an overlay of other song goodies such as the theme from “Knight Rider,” as well as the “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

Find A Great Deal On A C8 On Marketplace? Buyer Beware!
Whether you drive your Corvette in the rain or not is a personal choice, but we wouldn’t suggest testing the roof’s weatherstripping by full submersion! It’ll be interesting to see how this Corvette fares in the following weeks and months as the remaining bits of moisture still make themselves known. But, by then, those worries may be the concern of its new owner. Did anyone find a great deal on a “slightly used” black C8 Corvette this week?
