    You know you have an amazing car when it has recommendations for tire pressure based on what track you're on! That's something more owner's manuals need!

      @Rick Hammond Are you seriously comparing a vehicle with limited downforce, excessive weight, and can't even run the Nürburgring one lap without going into limp mode to a vehicle that comes FROM THE FACTORY with brake cooling ducts? Car performance is more than just off the line 0-60 times (which it still loses). A model 3 wouldn't even have line of sight on a vette on the ring, or any other track for that matter, after a few turns.

    Great car. I’d like to watch the car a lot more than I want to watch you drive it from a front mounted camera. One of the most beautiful things about the car is the center console, which gets little to no attention from the camera angles. The car is the subject, not you.

    Can you imagine what the ZR1 will be like? (!)
    I read or heard that it may come with two turbos mated to this incredible V8. If that's true, I would imagine an increase of 100 to 150 horsepower. I hope that's true. Because that would be insane. 🤞
    9:56 looks like a drawer full of knives.

    As a Corvette owner across generations I can only be absolutely blown away from the performance of this car. Excellent job with the engineering and package. My concern on the new ones would be supportability in the future. Also we're at the point where this kind of performance is really way beyond anything that would be mildly entertaining on the public roads unless you live in deserted areas. I learned this many decades ago with 1000CC sportbikes. But it's the ultimate Corvette without a doubt.

      Eh. What made the Corvettes special was they weren't like all the other super cars. They went against the grain with their deep sound V8, were loud, evil and instead of caring about stupid things like being 1sec quicker around a track, they were just fast. That's all we need. You bought a Corvette not because you want to compete with Ferrari or Porsche, but because you didn't want anything like a Porsche or Ferrari, or any other car manufacturer for that matter. The Viper is the only car which came close to what the Corvette was.
      The C6 ZR1 was the best and looked awesome. The C7 started to look like a toy with its extra puffy bits and slits. But the C8 has gone full toy - it looks like all the other mid engine supercars, like a wannabe NSX but to stand out it had to go even further with puffy bits and slits that the C7 started.

    An odd question I would like to know . If you drove this car as your only daily driver , driving it sanely . Taking care of it and doing all the factory maintenance required . Would it be as reliable and go 200 plus thousand miles ?

      @noncog1 if you add torque to a miata, the car lost everything good it has, the chassis is not that good, its just balanced very well with everything else, if you upgrade one thing, you have to upgrade everything else to the same level, its not easy task and no factory honda engine will turn it into a lemans killer that simple

You haven't done anything, nor do you have any empirical data let alone citation to prove your position.

Granted it was 25 degreees and he had thr Triple R tires and other cars were all wheel drive for most part.. But he couldn’t get it to stick 1 time with traction control on. They gotta be able to put the power down despite the temperature imo.. Sweet ass car tho.. His came out of the demo mode while he was driving onto track lol.

    Id like to have seen the car actually be pushed to see how it responds. Is it easy to catch or does it suddenly snap into a spin and dance off into the trees? I guess it has enough electronic wizardry for it to be the former than the latter but perhaps it just requires a more confident driver to find that out. Ido however find it very easy to believe the car exists though, having seen another beautiful road car that Praga has just released which will have similar levels of power in a car thats less than 60% of the weight. Sure, you'll be able to buy ten of these for the same price but hey, you can only drive one car at a time.

    This car does the same 1/4 mile as my purpose built C5R Monster did, when it was set up for drag 😮

    I just can't get enough of this car. Thanks to GM for allowing their engineers to build a real-world class sports car.

      And thank GM for all the pos’s before that people were suckered into buying too. What a racket they got 🤣.

      Awesome car! Just wishGM would put the same effort on their other vehicles. They are not very appealing. Just a mediocre job at best with R&D , design and engineering.

      @LateNightCable 100% right. Each time a new generation comes out, I wonder if it'll be the last time people say "Wow, GM has actually built a supercar this time!" But they keep saying the same thing, like they just forgot about the last gen. They said it in 2001, 2006, 2015... The Z06 has been blowing the doors off supercars for a really long while now.

    No manual transmission is a hard no. I don't need a supercharger, either. It's a pass for me, a street driver. I don't drive tracks; I drive road.

    I like how GM goes to great lengths to look the part, shaving weight with fancy carbon wheels and carbon square steering wheels... yet the car still weighs a ginormous amount. The lightest version is 3721lbs , almost 500-600lbs more than a new 911 GT3, or 600lbs more than a C6 Z06 which had a 7.0L NA engine.

      100% agree! So damn heavy. 400lbs heavier than my M3, which admittedly is not cool or as fast as this, but can haul 5.

    The exhaust note still leaves me underwhelmed. I think it's possible that GM goes to a 2-plane crank on the ZR1.

    The 8-speed shift programming is music to the ears. Drive it hard, and it makes it SOUND like YOU know how to blip downshift like you were using a clutch to do it. This thing looks like it sticks through a turn so hard your eyes will pop out and stick to the side windows. Bravo GM, THIS is the car.

    Probably will never happen (because gm/Chevy are incredibly slow) but I'd love to see this vehicle with forced induction and an electric motor between the gas engine and the transmission. This will turn this car into a 170k monster.

    That could have been such a timeless classic design with round or oval tail lights and a double cowl style dashboard rather than the interior looking like Battlestar Galactica
