    *correction* I accidentally said 369 instead of 469 for torque. My apologies, I was a bit rushed and didn’t catch myself.

    @jason meldrum I wud argue against your opinion primarily because 1. The MK II Ford GT is non affordable even if you had enough money, U basically need to adore Ford to buy it which is STUPID! 2. We all know gas cars are going out of this world in next 10-20 years time, a lot of petrol heads had a dream to own a mid engine super car and I dare you, no other brand on earth other than GM held those dreams and delivered them , now the chance is lost for Ford to deliver that dream, and when GM did it they made sure that its still advanced even from base model, 65k USD for Z51 is crazy

    It’s a nice car but there are a few styling cues that make it look tacky, side inlets black trim, should just be body color, rear tail lights don’t look good in it, too camaroish, (should be round), the frond end bottom looks too too raked back, should be more vertical, overall shape not bad, but they could have done better. Chevrolet needs to pull away from The Transformers childish styling cues and the angry eyes headlights.

    Cars are not "important;" anymore than celebrities, politicians and sports stars; being self entitled VIP's. Becoming aware of the psychological, biological and WEATHER warfare at hand, is "important.".

    it looks and feels wrong to see a Vette with this short front end. „Never touch a running system“ Corvette guys. 👎

    It's sad supercars these days have no manual trans. option except the Ford GT. I would buy, if I could afford it, an early 70's corvette, 454, 4 speed and upgrade the interior and suspension. Besides, IMO this is butt ugly.

  19. MAD DOG

    I need some opinions, what is the best corvette front suspension setup? Is it the 2020 C8’s or another?

    The engine sounds muffled compared to C7. Is it due to audio recording? Otherwise it looks great

    I never ran that configuration at Thunder Hill. But what a great place to test this Corvette. Thunder Hill has beautiful and wide sweeping corners and wide open straights. The track is 25 feet wide! I wish I lived closer! I never have ran a car on D.O.T. tires, so, grip looks a bit dodgy, but ther is minimal tire squeal. The car looks VERY stable, quiet and neutral. The LT block can handle a lot more power than the 500hp it comes with, so tuners...bring it on! Time to push the long awaited chassis to its limits!!!

    I got away from vettes because of the cheap plastic interiors but if they improve that I'd probably buy another one. Z06 maybe. But for now ill stick with exotics with experience.

    I enjoyed the video more when you were driving and excited. That felt more authentic than later in the video when you said something like "after speaking to other drivers I've decided it's just a Corvette, blah." I say stick with your gut feelings

    What more do you want on a $60,000 Super Car : either you love it or hate it : Sure the price from Dealers will be in the 80's or 90's but who gives a shit when you compare performance to other "Over Price" piece of crap Super Cars across Hitler's Socialist Homeland called EU....

    The New C-8 Corvette proves that most people refuse to buy into the Leftwing balony of global Warming-Climate Change. The Bogus politically motivated pretensions are now seen for the absurdity they have always been. God takes care of the planet, so natuarally the Earth is in good hands, as always.

    Almost 500hp and you have more chassis than engine? Wow. I got a great sense in the video, of how planted, and well mannered the car was. That was really unique. I could just feel it. I mean, screw the angry bee sounds. Just lay down that torque and cruise around that track really quickly. Looked like fun. Finally, a Corvette I would love to own.

    It seems like your first impression of the car was "this is awesome." Then after talking to some other people, it didn't feel quite as special because, well, it's "just a Corvette." I guess I can agree with that. For the price they're asking, a TON of these cars are going to get sold, and in that way they won't seem all that special. However, when you think about what GM recently did with the alpha Camaro in 1LE trim, this mid-engine Vette will be a world beater in every performance scenario imaginable, when you consider the price of course. This is a real game-changer. For $60k, you can get into a brand new mid-engine sports car, slap on a good set of tires, and on track you're hanging with Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche. Can't beat that with a stick.
