    Logic is what's missing with these Ford needs to wake up trolls.

    Also, this car probably will MSRP for 60k, but after options and since it's a new vette you bet your ass it's going to be 70, 80k. My brothers friend paid 76k for his stingray. He got his from a dealer connection back in late 2014.

    I always thought if GM hits it outta the park with this one, the c7 will be obsolete. Damn, I'd love a zr1!!! Been watching zr1 vids on YT.

    Hero run = bottom 11’s @ 127ish IMO

    Will probably run consistent mid 11’s in everything but terrible conditions.

    Handling will be phenomenal as well and is the real story here.

    absolutely beautiful car, and it's insane you get supercar level performance and styling for only $58k.

    Kinda disappointed they just didnt make it a nice round 500hp. Its like doing all the work to climb everest, getting the last 100ft from the summit and just saying "eh, close enough."

    Cant wait for the C8 Z06, its going to be a world beater

    I can cope bruh! I'm not brand loyal, I own two american vehicles, a german bike, and a japanese daily driver.

    I think the c8 looks okay, gonna have to see it in other colors, the convertible looks sweet. im excited to see what the c8z brings. Maybe scoop up a c7 zr1 for cheap by the time the c8z comes out.

    I read the upcoming variants will introduce hybrid power. I'm not seeing much room yet for a big blower or twin nagasaki noisy boys.

    Doesn't look friendly to work on.

    Still be a fool to drop the kind of money they want for a Mustang with this thing sitting around the corner.

    As well, the base model actually looks good! Most of the time the base model is lack luster, this looks good in even base trim.

    I am impressed. I was planning on a Gen5 Viper as next car, maybe go with this instead.

    Oh the hate is real already, people saying it’s a dated Ferrari, bitching about the low power etc. meanwhile these same people can’t even afford the base model likely so it’s laughable at best.

    Wait so are you actually buying one OP? Or just letting the shiny new Government Motors hot wheels car cuck you?

    The 2020 GT500 will absolutely run circles around the base C8 on a track. You're dilusional to even be making the comparison. The real performance comparison would be the Z06 C8... But that won't fit your narrative, because it will in fact cost more than the GT500. The GT500 is a touring car that will compete with Vetts, Porsches, etc.

    Finally, this new base C8 would be lucky to outrun a C6 Z06. You're way overestimating it's trap speed capabilities because DueL cLuTCh Br0. The 13/14 GT500 has the C6Z covered power:weight. The 2020 GT500 is punching a class above it's weight. That's not a cheap thing to accomplish, however at the end of the day it will be somewhere in between the C8 base and C8 Z performance wise. Oh, and between them price wise as well, funny how that works isn't it?

    They could have easily sold this as a totally new car for a 1/4 more of the price and still made out well. Well done Chevy. Hard to wrap my head around this being the same price as a gt350.

    A C7 Z06 is starting to climb up the list to be my next car...and the GT500 is falling.

    The potential Z06 engine has already been leaked and it's a twin turbo setup: Twin-Turbo V8 LT7 Engine For C8 Corvette Z06 Leaked
