Sorry we photoshopped the thumbnail green. Chevy gave us a dull burgundy C8 and we were worried it wouldn’t work well as a thumbnail. ❤️ Thanks for watching and subscribing 🙂

I CAN NOT BELIEVE it's this cheap, man. From this perspective it's a revolution.

I smiled so hard when I heard the transmission is made by Tremec, I applied for a job there a couple years back and actually got in but was offered a better position somewhere else. This Belgian company makes high quality products though, i’m super proud of their achievement with the C8.

"The Corvette is the only mid engined car you can get for that price" Porsche Cayman: Am I a joke to you?

This is legit the first time I have ever thought of owning a Corvette. They're doing something right.

Vette all the way. Vette makes longterm maintenance a realm of possibility for which all other exotics will take your arms and legs.

exhaust sound is miles away from the c7's.....in fact c7 sound was my favourite

Yea all LS/LT motors have that "sewing machine" sound. C6 Z06 is still my favorite corvette. The back end on the C7 wasn't great and the C8 is worse. I haven't driven a C8 but, I've seen them and sat in one. It just doesn't do anything for me. Glad people like the C8 so much hopefully it'll drive down the prices of other cars I'd like to own.

"Hey, I just got an email from a friend who got the Z24 Cavalier. Says he Loves it! It's got a hot engine and even hotter looks. Kinda like the sports cars of Cavaliers." Think you can't afford a sports car? Think again!

"It looks like it was designed by two people" Nope, it was just designed by the guy who created the Pontiac Aztek.

1:50 "It doesn't rev as high as I wanted to from a mid engined car" Doesn't really matter where the engine is placed. If it's American, the engine is almost always a crossplane V8

Great video guys! I've had a 2019 Silverado with the rear view camera mirror for over a year now. Once you get used to it you'll never want to use a regular rear view mirror again. It takes a few minutes for your eyes to adjust to it!

09:04 you can clearly see the transition from excitement to an absolute "MEH" on his face haha. This car needs 600HP and more torque imo. But for what they're charging, not bad.

The design is derived heavily from C7, a like mid engine C7. I am fan of the C3 and C6 and personally would like to see how the modern mid engine versions would look.
