        I mean:
        I think the specs are awesome.
        I think it will probably smash anything else this side of $200k and then some.
        I think it will be a pretty easy ownership proposition, with basically an evolved LS engine and GM parts/servicing not usually being too painful.
        I've been a GM guy and a V8 guy for most of my life. It's a car I should obviously want.

        I think I just can't come to terms with how it looks. I don't usually like the proportions of mid engined supercars (very short bonnet, long front overhang, cabin a long way forward) and that might be part of it, but I also find the details hard to look at. There's shit going on everywhere - lines, vents, angles, creases - so it's as though the designers just didn't know when to put the pencil down. That black rear wing looks stupid and tacky. I look at the camo car on page 1 of this thread where the details are hidden and think it looks good, but then look at the production car and it's too much. I think the Jaguar F-Type is the best looking car on the market right now, to give you some idea of what I do think looks good.

        Maybe it's better in the metal. Maybe I'll love it in black where the overdone details are less conspicuous. I dunno. This issue is taking up far more of my headspace than it should right now!
        Just remember, anything that looks shit on the exterior; be it placements of vents, creases, spoiler design, colour are moot when you're behind the wheel :D

          Do you really think a proper Corvette is going to be sold for less than a W24/7? Nope. We're looking at a $350k car here.

                F40's come in red, Corvette will come in red, why would they sell for less than 1.2 Million?

                        If it sounds even remotely like the corvettes at Le Mans, it will be glorious.
                        .... because every driver experiences the destructive potential of the effortless surge of power available through the smallest of body movements.

                            If they make it (surely they will) it should be quite a thing. Twin turbo flat plane engine revving to 8k and beyond would sing a song. Although no doubt extortionately expensive if it arrives here.

                              There's your $500k Corvette, and it had to be, Chevrolet couldn't let an overpowered Jeep be the most powerfull American motor ....
