    Makes that $100,000 GT500 Carbon Track car look like the biggest waste of money in automotive history.

    This is what happens when you start thinking a 4,000lb muscle car can become a track weapon. Chevy goes and drops this insanity out there. This car is just insane. And no dumb limited allocation crap. Man...Chevy just dropped the mic.

    I love too how you get DCT in the 60K base edition. Unreal. This is true passion vs lazy FORD approach.

    unreal, 3360 lbs dry. Cant wait for the Z06 version. will be fast as hell.
    Thank you Chevy for bringing a mid engine USA built super car for the masses.
    Ford brings us 4100 lb (or whatever it is ... we're still waiting on it) 760HP tire spinner and condones dealer ADM to boot.
    Great job!

    That's almost 1,000 lighter than the GT500! Unreal.

    I'll say this...muscle cars need to stay muscle cars. How silly does this Vette make even the GT350R look right about now.

    Yeah, best move it out of the GT500 section before everyone wakes up and realizes Ford is ripping them off with a bloated pig track weapon.

    It will be quick but it will be underpowered to REALLY kick ass. It needs about another 150HP to keep up with the GT and GT500... but it will come. 0 to 60 may beat the GT500 easily tho.

    I'm thinking the base will do

    0-60: 2.9
    1/4 Mile: [email protected]

    Hard to tell though. It's just SO DAMN light and has 8 speed DCT and WAY BETTER aerodynamics than the GT500.

    I think both cars will be dead even and the Vette will just SMOKE it around a track. Not to mention how much more fun a mid-engine car is to drive. Interior is like a fighter plane. Just really blown away by Chevy's attention to detail inside and out on this car. Ford mailed it in.

    I rented a C7 and took it to Baytown. LT1 Auto vert. It ran [email protected] The C8 making a bit more power, maybe gets it planted better but I still can’t see 10s out of this C8. My guess is [email protected] Still mighty impressive for a base Vette at this price tag!

    it wont do 10s with 500HP. It needs another 100, at least. It weighs as much as the GT and GT has 650hp and it only gets what, 10.5 quarters?
    yeah, I'd say to break 10s it needs another 100 HP. Z06 version will kill it!!

    10.3 @ 130 will be the same as 9.65 in Demon , most owners runs mid to low 10s.
    you're on crack if you think this car will run 10.3 . it's heavier then base C7 . 3360lbs dry weight , that's around 3550 with fluids
