I'm sorry but it's an ugly car. It looks like they stole the design from the Ferrari F430, circa 2004.

The previous gen ZR1 is where it's at.
I like this C8 but man I don't want to mod it. It took probably almost a year for the tuning to become available for the LT5 ZR1. It already has it's own sequential port injection system, but damn it is getting super expensive buying all the tuning credits. I can't imagine what it will cost and also the new trans on top of that. And what's every GM guys favorite thing to do? That's right, put a big ass cam in there. Welp, probably have to pull the engine!!! You were supposed to remove the engine to do the cam on the LT4 but we had a work around. I wouldn't be surprised if cam/exhaust/tune runs you 10 grand

My guess is the lower trims won't be as mod friendly anymore but Chevy doesn't care about that. The high trim be it a super charger or turbo will be the money maker and the one people will really want to mod. The c8 is trying to break away from they sterotypes of previous vette owners

With how crazy the Camaro has gotten with HP and track ability they had to do something different with the Corvette. Hopefully it will change the stigma some.

The 5th gen Camaro was not bad... worked on a lot of those SS/ZL1/Z28. Remember one SS 1LE that had a Maggie, cam, heads etc and made about 770 to the tire. It had stock size Michelins and I just couldn't understand. You couldn't get on it, unless you were doing maybe 80. 6th Gen not bad but just didn't love them either. Expensive for a Camaro, still heavy, more difficult to work on. The newer ZL1 10 speed seemed like you were in 6th at about 40mph... The 1LE yea basically dedicated track car.

I built a C8 for fun and it was about 75k

Watched more vids on this car... They couldn't even make it do a burnout on dry pavement. The front wheels started skidding as they were locked up. 40/60 weight distribution... Also the launch mode looks awesome, and if you bull both paddles at the same time it allows a clutch dump. Can be done at speed also, 10/10 would drive. Just wait until the further revisions come out and the zo6 version
