    I’m beyond excited for mine. I got a convertible, which I’m hopeful is as brilliant dynamically. I’m so tempted to buy another 458 while I wait, or possibly a 675 as they’ve really come down in price. But damn I’d have such buyers remorse if I preferred the vette at half the price!

    I know.....I’m intrigued enough to perhaps wait for the C8 although Covid is really delaying things. Just thing about the Z06/ZR1 etc. my God.

    Its hard to imagine what this car is like with 700+ HP with turbos and 1000+ HP with electric assist. 0-60 in the 1's?

    I do agree with the styling. IMO, they could have pushed it a bit more. Its' kind of a mish mash of different designs like the C7 meets the F430 meets the Lambo Aventador. But the electronic gadgets like the mirror tv and GPS controlled front lift, and head up display are just freakin' awesome.

    It’s a good styling baseline though to allow the performance variants to be bad a$$ without having to be over the top nuts like the Aventador SVJ.

    I can sum it up very simply...You need to drive this car, once you do it will all become very clear...For me to ever justify buying an F car or Lambo again, It would have to have some kind of mind blowing alien technology....IMO the only thing you get with those cares now is status and exclusivity...I really think for anyone with an open mind, the C8 has changed the game...

    I am very excited to see what the Z06/ZR1 have in store.
