    Hey! I'm no lard ass but I hate having to climb over a wide sill.Only your dog will enjoy jumping in the car. The worse I have been in is the saleen s7. Having to crawl out is not cool.

    So, we are all going to need the data on that wheel and tire size because that is perfect for this car.

    But it's not black, yippee! I'm not a fan of grey/black rims.

    My position on black wheels is well known around these parts.
    But if someone likes ‘em, whatever.

    The C8 is lighter than Audi R8 and 100lb more than a FordGT. All those airbags etc are heavy. The C8 will be near 3800 with me in the car. My 2019 mustang GT racecar is not fully gutted due to class rules but was 3800lbs added in 150lbs of steel rollcage gutted out 90% of the interior and now weigh 3600 off the track with me in the car! All that safety padding, 20 way power seats, stereo and screens, 7 anti theft antennas, and all the rest add tons of weight. You want a decent seat unlike all the hate the light C5Z06 seat got you are going to add 50lbs! You want to quiet that big V8 behind your head and keep the interior cool you are going to get 25lbs of insulation. There is no free lunch and the C8 isn't a GT chassis but tuned to feel like one while providing sportscar performance. That level of NVH control costs you weight too!
