Is driving it in reverse the Ferris Bueller effect of keeping the miles down?
Very cool seeing the excitement and customer Corvettes across the pond.

Interesting to see in the video that upon startup, the exhaust gases only come out of the two outside pipes. What we're seeing is that the two center pipes contain butterfly valves which close up after startup (they actually open for a second then close) , and gives us that nice loud startup sound.

^ Yup. Saw that too and indeed those butterfly valves are shut until needed. And it's a cool sight to see those rear lamps at work.
