Mid engine Vette will be an interesting platform if they offer it with TTV8 and DCT trans

What makes sense to me is the C8 taking over the Z06/ZR1 space in the Corvette lineup. So GM continues the C7 as the base and the C8 as the higher end supercar competitor.

You can make out the air inlet on the door on the pre-production car and it looks similar.

On throttle it sounded v6'ish, but on the double downshift with blips it sounded very much V8.

I don't think they'd go V6 considering how steadfastly they held to Front/Rear layout before. My guess is either flat plane, or a 180° crossover exhaust. Which if they went Hot-V would be very easy to do going into twin turbos.

If the C8 street car looks anything like that and starts at under 100k.

That is unless they fuck it up and put a v6 turbo in it or something dumb like the GT.

A smaller sized v8 turbo like the mcclarens would be sex


Edit: or unless it costs a stupid amount of money.

the ford GT having a v6 really didn't hurt it at all IMO.

Overall I guess not. I mean they sold them and it did well in racing.... which is what it was designed for.

For me personally I just feel it lost some of its magic being a V6 and sharing 60% of the parts from the truck engine as well makes it less special to me. Also I feel it doesn’t sound very good at all, and for that money I want a nice soundtrack.

Either way. Not thread derailing. I just hope it has a nice V8 in it

Keep in mind that we're looking at the C8.R. The road car will not be as wide or aggressive. That being said the over all shape is pure sex. I will save as long as I have to in order to buy a mid-engine Vette. I don't care if it takes me 10-15 years.

For comparison

The retard comments in that Jalopnik article amuse me. They are all talking about how LS motors don’t sound like that so it must be a V6 and shit. Meanwhile I’m just sitting there like- corvettes haven’t had an LS motor since 2013.....

Being that the Gen 3,4,5 engines all share the same 4.4" bore spacing, I'll say they are still small blocks.

Negative Ghost Rider. The price is 100k+

Or so the internet says. But based on Previous ZR1 pricing? I'd say its a sure bet.
