The C-8 is amazing to see in person. It is many levels above previous years of Corvettes as far as finish, etc., plus it is a mid engine with a 0-60 of less than 3 seconds. It looks much nicer in person, and I'll know once I drive one if it is as good as my Gallardo.

Hell no, in the end all you have is an American made GM product. I'll pass.

LOL...right on. I still don't know why Chevrolet and Lamborghini should be allowed to be in the same sentence.

Dammit...I just did it myself.

The Corvette has a lot of nostalgia going for it in the good old USA that many of you may not fully understand or appreciate. It represents freedom and patriotism in America and has been purposefully designed and built to be affordable by many, not by the few.

It has been a favorite of our military service men and women, and our astronauts. it also ranks number one as the vehicle most designed and built in the USA, by people and parts made in the USA, above all other cars, and thus has earned a reputation as the only true American Sports Car.

The Corvette isn’t an exotic car, and doesn’t want to be. People are proud to own it not because it is expensive and rare, but because it is a Corvette. Think of it instead as a Harley Davidson motorcycle. It serves exactly the same purpose and targets the same market.

Corvette drivers love to see other corvettes on the road, they do not cringe when they see each other, they smile and wave. The Corvette can have this same effect on a Lambo owner while driving a Corvette (I know, I have both).

So again, the Corvette is not an exotic and could never be a Lamborghini. However, a Lamborghini could never defeat a Corvette at what the Corvette really is. They are both a different sort of “special”, but while a Lambo could be swapped for a Ferrari, the Corvette has no similar “peer”.

The fact that a Corvette, made for everyone, can compete for speed and performance numbers with a Lambo, is nuts amazing, and does deserve respect.

Well said, thank you. The C8 has the performance and looks of an exotic. We should all be rooting for an American made car. Lamborghini is the king of the automotive world, but we can still appreciate other cars!

Admin, perhaps merging these two threads together?

The other "C8 consideration" thread is here.
