Sounds cheap to me.... when you compare the specs against what's out there.
But the proof is in the pudding.

And I'll just laugh at the guy who bought this spec, and then only takes it out every other Sunday to Cars & Coffee. Of course, it is his right to do so. But, so sad.

Default C8 first test drive!!!!!

https://youtu.be/nUHNATBzFjE

This thing cuts curves like a knife. Its insane!!!!

Matt, I dont know... something rubs me the wrong way about his reviews. He just seems to have clear and present biases. It's like on the track. He's going bananas. Then a week later hes talking like the car is average at best.

I'm not trying to fanboy this thing. I love honesty. But his honest just seemed more like a calculated. Let's not give chevy that much props just cuz I am NOT a GM guy. He kinda makes it clear he hates GM and Nissan. So it feels like no matter what you do? They will never make a good enough car for him. This video showed me an $85,000 track beast. But you know what? I like watching the not so professional you tube reviewers. They just take a more realistic non-corporate approach to reviewing. And their biases are fewer than the professionals. I think all I need from the pro's are the lightning lap times. The rest, I'll get from real world, salt of the earth enthusiasts.

I can understand about the rev criticisms though. I thought about that while the car was in camouflage. I'm not saying that hes not making valid points. But the post commenta and his delivery of his points just were ehh?

Car looked great, unsure about the mid 80’s hairband comment
But enjoyed seeing the Tabby Cat

I mean if he dogs the s*** out a car manufacturer, they aren't going to give him the same access to future models. If he dogged the hell out of GM's new Corvette, I imagine they would have gutted him like a fish in pit lane lol

It's weird. Just watching the video, and even if you mute his comments, you can just tell how it can handle and change direction with ease.

I'm not totally peeved by his after-the-fact comments. I can imagine the shifting on the street to be a work in progress, steering doesn't sound surprising given how electric PS cars can be now, the materials are also expected given price point.

Even though I was going to play the long game and not want to be a guinea pig, I feel like the lead times compounded with the possible delays due to the strike, and the reveal of the C8.R with slowly leaking details, makes me think I'm better off saving for a Z06....on top of waiting out the guinea pig stage of that as well.

I got to see the new vette up close and personal at petite lemans this last weekend. I was actually impressed after looking at it. The C8R was there too and took a couple of laps before the race and was in the Fan Area. And actually saw one on the road, a person showed up at a restaurant I was eating at.
