C7 Discussion in MT's "WOT"

Not sure what they actually talk about since my internet doesn't want to load it
Let me know what they're discussing. They also talk about the Bugatti, and the GTR/R8 test.

they talked about the Corvette team caring less about building to a cost. They also bring up the notion that there's going to be a 'stripped' model. I hope that does not happen.
one guy says it's the biggest re-think of the Corvette since the 80s. guess they missed the C5.

With $4 gas a 5.3 cube under 400 hp "corvette coupe" sounds great.

car already going to get close to 30mpg..
which better then the gtr 3.8L or audi r8 or viper
so it is winning the mpg area..
$4 a gallon not bad when you look at europe paying $7 to $9 a gallon.. and about $7 to $8 a gallon in japan..

You can make a slow corvette.. people looking for higher then 28mpg usually are looking at 4cylinders.. that were cars like SRT4 came in. I had great HP and 32mpg on highway when out of boost and going slow
