    C8 Corvettes are here!

    Finally! Torch Red 3LT Z51 and Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic 3LT Z51. Last pic is the customer Carl, who just happed to be here when his car arrived. Super cool moment for him! I'll give my impressions tomorrow. Initially though, the car has tons of room. I have more room in this car than I do a 6th gen Camaro. It's quiet and needs an aftermarket exhaust asap. lol

    Love the red one. Guess I'd have to see the gray in person... just reminds me of primer gray and looks unfinished in photos. Both great looking cars overall though

    It's better in person. I hated this color on the C7 but I kinda like it on C8. Very unique color. Sometimes it looks primer gray, sometimes it looks white and sometime it has a bluish pearl look to it.

    The intake (or cover) looks pretty cool.

    Why do I want to listen to La Grange all of a sudden?

    I saw a truck load of them while I was just there. Pretty sure I passed by your dealership as well. They need to fix that shitty road that runs down the side of it.

    Very nice. If your prospective list of "C8Z"s customers is short, I'd be interested in getting on it. I went to Michigan for my C7Z and will make the adventure across the country should the deal make sense.

    Some more impressions. Cold start sounds awesome. Gets quiet though, even in sport mode. I'm sure it will sound good at WOT.



    Passenger seat is SUPER tight. Where I have tons of room in the driver seat, my knees are mm away from the dash in the passenger seat. Tall passengers will hate it.

    Here's a video of the morello red interior.

    GM has done so well with wheels for a long ass time now

    C8 wheels are aids

    The Doug demuro video helped me appreciate it more. Still don't know if I want the first year problems to deal with though. It is tempting

    Agreed. I could cope with the wheels on the red one but if I order one, it will have the base wheels and I'll have an aftermarket set here waiting to install.

    That is certainly an interesting color. It's could almost be 3 different colors, depending on the light/angle. I wouldn't have it for my own, but it is kinda neat.

    That roof needs to be black. Then I think it'd look better

    I've had one person cancel but I already have a backup list.

    As of today, we can no longer submit sold orders for 2020 C8s. GM will have one more consensus next month and that's it until 2021 model starts in September. The demand for this car in combination with the strike and now the assembly plant closure due to Corona has forced them to cut allocations. Don't think anyone is getting a "cheap" C8 for some time. Right now, MSRP is cheap.

    I can't say I care for that spoiler, but for me that's true of most of them. I don't even particularly like the stock one. The rest of the car looks fantastic, though.

    I hated the spoiler when it was first shown. In person, I like it a lot. I'm not sure if I would order it but I think it does add to the looks.

    That matrix gray car looks fantastic IMO. I bet it looks even better in person too.

    Surprisingly, black is the one color that I don't really care for on the C8. I've always thought Corvettes looked great in black but it hides all of the lines, much like white, on C8. Maybe seeing black in person will change my mind but so far, it doesn't really do anything for me in pics and video.

    It looks odd but it doesn't bother me at all while driving. They really had to do it that way for visibility.

    But it's RIGHT THERE!!






    I love everything about the C8 except that center stack that walls the passenger off. From a design standpoint I get it, but purely aesthetically speaking it isn't a home run. However that is my only gripe and if I could drop 80 grand on a toy I would have ordered mine the day the order process started.

    the matrix grey posted about is the best looking one I've seen in factory configuration, I'm not a fan of any of the factory wheels, but the ones that one would be the most livable till the right aftermarket are fitted. really looking forward to seeing more and more modified ones.

    Yep. The wheels are aftermarket on that one though. They're MRR FS06 I believe.

    Yea those look like the FS06's. I have a set on my Merc and in general, they are a decent wheel but the original center caps they provided fit like shit. After a lengthy back and forth, they ended up making a different center cap to fit properly (flush).
