Half the price of the 911 and 1/6th the price of the F12. The corvette just gets better and better!

I'm going to be completely honest. At first glance I thought the Ferrari was the C7. In the newsfeed.

Testimony to using wind tunnel results to design a car.

I get the side view of the C6, the C7 and the F12 confused.

But we see few Ferrari's in Michigan, there being only one dealer for the state, so I insist I should be forgiven.

On the other hand: nothing in my experience sounds as awesome as a twelve cylinder Ferrari driving down the freeway or through the parking lot. And a twelve cylinder Ferrari only costs a quarter of million dollars and the waiting list for a new one never goes over two years!

The Porsche wins??? It's the awd not the weight distribution and chassis as they claim. At 2.5 times the price of the Corvette (which bested it in all the testing) I'll gladly take the Z51.

A truly great video! .... Did anyone listen and compare the auto paddle shift vs manual?

I listened. I still prefer manual.

Of course, I admit I am dyslexic, if that means anything.

Stingray and F12 headlights are almost mirror images! Good thing the C7 is 1/6 the price but still 9/10 the adrenaline!
