There is little doubt it will be an amazing performer. I agree we need to reserve judgement but the current Vette is fantastic from a driving experience perspective and runs rings around most other cars. I would be shocked if this isn't the case here... and more.

My bet is this car outperforms far more expensive cars. I would also wager that the ZR1 variant will run rings around most anything else out there including 458's, Lambos, etc. All speculation but I'll put $100 on it.
