A couple media outlets are now reporting the C8 did 7:28 at Nurburgring.

If true, only 1 sec off C7 Grand Sport equipped with stage 3 Z07 aero, carbon ceramics, and cup2 tires. Z51 C7 had time of 7:33.

It would make sense though, better balance and more HP. Can't wait for the track focused versions!

It's not even in production yet; how is it the NA car of the year?

Here's a 35 second drive by video of the C8 Z06 flat crank. Sounds angry.

That straight up sounds like a Ferrari flat plane crank. Not the Voodoo in the GT350.

The Voodoo is handicapped by a single airbox for reasons I don't understand. The Fezza and presumably the Vette will have dual airboxes.

And thats barely under throttle, just a little tease, they’re going to make us wait to hear it really spun up.
We can get a much better listen to the new Chevrolet flat crank V8 opened up this weekend at Daytona in the new C8R. Obviously it’s not the same as the street engine but not that far off.

Honestly the wheels on the new C8 isn't what I'd call "attractive."

I guess now they're using the more common 5x120 instead of the Corvette only 5x 4.75" bolt pattern, these will be easy target for a lot of wheel thieves.

Looks better without the factory wheels. Time for an upgrade.

I mean, they're both mid engines cars. One looks slightly melted and feminine though. Admittingly I find the 430 to be the low point of mid engine Ferrari's outside of the Mondial.

I certainly see some of it in the front end. The rest is pretty different, at least for two comparably situated cars.

I’m going to say no for the SS 1LE wheels. People ask me if they are aftermarket and I like them much better than the ZL1/ZL1 1LE wheels. The massive dish looks great IMO and is accented by the design. Only wish they were 19 and not 20.
