    The C8 styling to me is like the proportions of a 458-esque Ferrari with Lamborghini angles in many areas, with a little bit of C7 Vette but not much

    It's 98% NSX, to me.

    And they have announced the Z06 will be built in RHD

    Currently there are a small number of RHD Vettes in Australia, but these are official conversions - which also makes them expensive.
    But C8 Stingrays and then Z06 will be coming as factory RHD.

    Yeah, I think I like this car precisely because it looks and sounds like the 458, but yeah, it also still looks like a Vette and cheaper too!

    Even if I'm a billionaire, NSX would be at the bottom of my list... I love the original one, but the new one just hasn't grown on me still... could be because of my disappointment with Honda's F-1 involvement... I don't mind that they didn't win, but I dislike that they just quit. Maybe if they come up with a Max Edition NSX then perhaps I'll move it higher up the list...

    Anyway, for sure I'd buy this Vette if I have the money. I think GM has done a decent job building affordable supercars as always.

    I just saw this car in Jay Leno's Garage on Youtube... this Z06 has an one off engine that's not shared with any other GM cars? Wow.

    Pretty sure this car will be sold with huge margins above MSRP and its value will likely rise later still... whereas NSX currently is heavily discounted...

    Seriously, manufacturers don't make cars like that anymore. No turbo, no hybrid BS... If you cannot afford the T50, this is probably the best alternative?

    So firstly GM turned the world around by making a mid-engined Corvette.

    Now they're releasing a hybrid, and also a full electric 'Vette!

    The hybrid might have 1000 hp!

    So, i forgot I didn't post anything about my driving them on the track at NCM...

    First video is our "Autocross" course. In this video, you hear Andy Pilgrim, yeah the guy that drove with the Earnhardt's in the 24hours of Daytona and later won the D24, was complimenting me.

    https://youtu.be/I_zZdBFgymA

    This was way more special than I could have imagined.

    Here is one of our track videos...

    Even on the all seasons, and the run follow setup, we were MOVING at places. The c7 vette is a track employee and one of the guys who competes at TTNats with Nate and I. The other car is none other than the owner and founder of Brian Tooley Racing.
