I have never been particularly interested in Corvettes until this car. All new interior with competition seats, 3300 lbs, magnetic shocks, rev matching 7MT, adjustable exhaust, Brembo brakes, carbon fiber galore and GM is saying estimated 450hp/450ft.lbs torque but much of the speculation based on the specs of the new engine is that it will be closer to 480hp and GM is not releasing that while there are a bunch of C6s on the lots remaining to sell. All of this for not a lot of $$$.... it will be $15,000 to $20,000 less than my M3/C63 were.
I just saw it at the Toronto auto show and it looks really good. The boneheads didn't have a door open and had it roped off... idiots....
This will be a force to be reconned with for the price for sure.
