    It's becoming silly.

    Looks fast but it still doesn't make me want to throw money at them like i felt when I saw the V-Wagon. Nice angry noise though.

    Also, unrelated, i feel like we need an official record for "Fastest ring time in least clothing"

    When I first saw this video my thought was that old age has finally caught me. There were way too many flirtations with really, really hard impacts without a racing harness, some kind of HANS setup, etc.

    Nice car but it's a couple of years late, had this car launched 3 years ago it would have taken sales from Audi, BMW, Cadillac and Mercedes in the high performance small sedan market.

    As far as ring records go I think the owners are missing out by not having an official time trial.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    No its a twin turbo italian car with active aero. You would DD the shiznit out of the dealers complimentary loaner Fiat 500 while this was being repaired. Except in the month of august when the loaner would also be getting repaired.

    Sadly i kinda wanna drive one, but the prospect of depreciation that rivals dairy products terrifies me. Hopefully someone will buy one and rent it on Turo.....

    It's funny and tragic and probably true all at once.

    Once Jeremy said, while driving Lada: "It is invented by the Italians, improved by the Russians, and now manufactured in Egypt, what could possibly go wrong?"

    It is funny you say that. The design spec for the Corvette since 1984 is that is must hold two full size men and two sets of golf clubs.
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

    LOL! You got that right. Only the italians can screw up designing an O-ring to seal a water pump body on my V-12. Wrong spec., wrong material. It is hard and flat as a pancake. But its OK this non-professional car guy figured out how to fix it.

    Gotta wonder if the C8 will comply?
