In this blog post, we are looking at a preproduction Mid-Engined Corvette C8’s Steering Wheel and details as well as a pictorial history of Corvette steering wheels.
Chevrolet released official photos of the new Mid-Engined Corvette C8’s Steering Wheel ahead of its debut on Thursday, July 18, 2019.

What do you think about its new shape?
The new squared-off shape has both a flat bottom and a flat top, which will visibility and makes it more comfortable to hold on long journeys.
Observe the leather centering strip at the top. Also, notice its beautiful contrasting stitching and beautifully integrated controls.
The new Mid-Engined Corvette C8’s logo is prominently displayed on the hub.
The new Mid-Engined Corvette C8 is expected only to have one-choice-dual-clutch automatic transmission (there will be no manual.). The paddle shifters are easily accessible on the new Corvette C8’s Steering Wheel.
There are seventeen buttons on the two spokes and around the hub; No doubt the usual cruise control, voice command, audio volume, and radio presets will be there.
Did you notice the silver button on the left embellished with the letter Z?
The letter Z has been used many times in the Corvette world, such as the Z51 performance package and for high-performance Corvette special models such as the Z06 and the ZR1.
We will have to wait until Friday, July 18, 2019, to find out what does it stand for now.
