Uhmmmm. Doesn't sound very impressive. Maybe if the revs got up in the 5K-6K range it would sound better

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

I can hear a small displacement V8.
Mild cammed.

Will not impress till the TT Boost version is shown.

What I noted is the C8 has the ability to shift lighting fast.
Tire scratch chirps and how its does it sound there.

I see and hear mid-engine traction turning engine torque and HP into forward motion with tremendous bite and minimal wheel spin = quick with less drama. I love to chirp my tires in second an third, but even my Z51 C6 must be feathered off the line carefully, preventing full throttle early on. This will NOT be a problem for the C8 until we see the 800+HP models...and maybe not much then (as tires will grow then too). JMHO

Corvette ownership is like owning your own fountain of youth ... and we get a sip from it each time the signal turns green.
