I’m not a fan yet...interior looks cool. The outside leaves a lot to be desired, want to see it in person.

I like the design a lot and see myself buying one someday soon.
Never a fan of the C7. Design looked too busy.

What do you think DA?

JK

I like the 8, performance, handling, etc seem light years ahead. More like a Ferrari look but with the V8, this is an American firebreather, no one can compete with this one!

I agree with you on the C7, never got with it.

I want to see one first hand, but thinking it would make a great Callaway 757! I wonder when the all- wheel drive version comes out with 1,000 hp?

Woo hoo! USA USA USA!

Interesting topic re: FI for the C8...it would seem, initially anyway, that space and keeping things cool under the hatch are big roadblocks to this. Maybe an alternate engine for FI is in the works? As for the C8 platform itself, IMHO it's much more attractive and superior to the C7 everywhere but under the hood/hatch (for now).
