    What do you think - does the C8 live up to the hype?

      This thing lives up to hype as well as the quality of the parts we made for it. BTW we threw the idea of quality out of a fast-moving car onto a busy highway some 5 years ago. That's how we won GM's business! We CHEAP!!

      Donut Media all those people talking smack about how a mustang is faster is only jealous. Do a video on the car cat callers that think the C8 won't be better. Makes the C8 that much more viable haha 😆

      Ford GT with a voodoo engine would still be more bad ass, but Ford is stupid and overpriced the shit out of it

        350 less hp than the zr1, totally different look, exhaust got changed, the screen doesn't have the compartment anymore not as much trunk space as the c7s, the button bridge is a stupid design which makes the car impractical and unusable with a passenger. Really disappointing

          15% is not "no one". Why everybody needs to think, feel and buy the same? Sport cars are toys. Reason doesn't play a role. So it's not a matter of the automatic changing gears under milli seconds etc. It's all about fun. And the more you interact with the car, the more fun you have. So the manual transmission is a good option back and please WITHOUT rev matching. It's a TOY! The toy driver wants to play with engine and gear box different rotations :)

              3:08 "quad tail lights; all unimistakably Corvette"
              This guy is on crack and must have never seen a Corvette. The rear is unmistakably Camaro, not Corvette.

                @Bond I disagree. Being on the last Corvette does not make it "unmistakably" corvette, since the Corvette designers blatantly copied it from the Camaro team, their GM competitors. It can only be labeled unmistakable if it's one of a kind, which it clearly is not.

                I get what youre saying and i hear ya. But these lights were also on the last corvette right?
                So hes not entirely incorrect
                Just entirely correct.

                        I find this corvette really attractive. Also such small price (especially compared to other same class cars) is great. I'd buy this if i had money!:D

                                        I wonder if that steering wheel will work in this 2500hd... Be nice to actually know how damn fast I'm going without having to crane my neck around to find the speedo... Does come in handy covering up some of the warning lights that are always coming on. Nothing wrong with it, other than GM wiring... So lights come on for no reason. Brake lights, check engine (that one is probably actually something wrong) gas light's always on, either cause the crap 6.0 sucks down more gas than ANYTHING I've ever driven and it is actually low on gas, or the sending unit is tarding out yet again and just saying it's empty. But the square shape would probably cover all that crap up, half way there. Already had to pull the air bag cause the damn horn wouldn't even work.

                                          It's amazing the crap GM comes up with, past vettes with torque tubes and rear transaxles for better weight distribution, direct injection and I don't know what else, surely they've done something else... But they keep sticking with pushrods, cause they just can't understand overhead cams... They tried once, well lotus did, and just never brought it up again.

                                            While its true to say it doesn’t have a manual transmission, that is not to say it has an auto either. Technically it has a semi-automatic. In any case a Dual Clutch is far superior to either for racing. As far as i can tell, the only people that complain about it “not having a manual” are people whom have no idea what a dual clutch is. Once they learn what it is, no more complaining.
                                            It would make 0 sense to waste money on putting a manual trans in that car when no one buys them in the first place and it would be a literal downgrade.

                                                  A beautifully crafted speedster that still runs on an old, outdated pushrod junk. No wonder they're selling this for below $70k. People from some online forums often treat this engine as if it's a gem bestowed by godly engineers, but in reality, it's all overrated. I thought chevy already planned to move on from this one when they announced that the new vette will be offered with an all-new 5-liter v8 engine, which sounded promising but in the end, it looks like they proved us wrong when they decided to stick with the old motor. Oh well, I guess great expectations can lead to great disappointments.
