  • O.T. The New Vette

    You know --- every time I see one of the new C-8's im just in awe,,, today was only about the third time im my little hick town but this time it was very up close and personal, and metallic gray with black trim OMG talk about goose bumps,,, yeah me losing control over an american car,,, wait a go Chevy im just as impressed with the "skin" along with finally making the big change with where you put the engine... What an awe inspiring sight...

    It is in very rare times like this that I wish I was filthy rich... lol

      Yeah, those C8s are sharp, and i agree with Ringo, they put a good bit of dirt in the eye of some of the fancy european brands. Supercar looks and performance at not-supercar prices is always a nice thing to see

        So true - no amount of on line pics can prepare you for just how stunning they look in person. they really are something for this country to be proud of they are totally exotic and just plain bad arss and you know america ain't afraid of throwing a few extra cubic inches at it to get the job done - one of our all time trade marks lol ...

            Seems they are going to be sold in NZ and I hope they will correct the assembly errors we saw on earlier models.

                      So the Nova can out corner the Vette? Better top speed, or maybe endurance on a 24 hour track? Is it a comfortable, quiet production car that anyone can purchase, has cold air conditioning and so on? Of course not. I imagine it WILL beat it in the quarter mile.
                      I am no great Vette fan, but using only 1/4 mile straight line acceleration as the singular comparative metric is not particularly meaningful or useful. Neither vehicle will 4-wheel worth a damn, so compared to even a ****ty Jeep, they are both crap...

                        Can’t wait for Whistlin Diesel to buy one and do his thing to it. Seriously though, I hated to see him destroy the Toyota Hilux…

                          what do you think the game is?

                          and....

                          does it come with a moustache or do you have to provide your own
                          in Toronto Ontario - where are you?

                            Yer damm straight! The key is the build of the Nova, not stock so much...

                            It is very configurable.

                            Set it up for a track, then set it up for a different course.

                            Plus, Corvettes are fugly.. JR

                              A friend bought one of those C8's. He took me for a ride in it. I was impressed at the snap it had but for 80 K I would buy a used Lamborghini.
