Wow, that's awesome! I will say, the C8 Vette looks amazing from the front and front 3/4, but after the doors it just keeps going and flattens out in a strange way. It's definitely a deceiving big car for just a two-seater.I got to see both C8 and Emira up close at Goodwood lady week including the test drive by the Duke around the track. I think both cars look better close up than in photos but the size and overall appearance of the Emira is more pleasing on the eye than the C8. I think the light colours blue and yellow work brilliantly with the black roof and lower door.
😂 . Well said ! The C8 is coming to Oz in factory RHD drive form at last. Have a deposit down on a C8 but the supply will be limited.. For me, it was more about aesthetics and driver engagement. Just looking at the cars, the Emira is a Rembrandt, the C-8 more like caveman art. 😁
I've always thought the C8 looked like a "rush job" with regards to many of the aero features. Just not what I (yes, opinion only of course) consider a very "clean" design.
Agreed regarding aesthetics, but I disagree regarding performance. On the drag or in the straights, the C8 will probably excel, but I'm willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that the Emira will outshine the C8 on track, at least the technical/squiggly ones. Power-to-weight ratios will be pretty close for the Emira V6 compared to the C8. Based on numbers on the internets, power-to-weight for the C8 Stingray is in the neighborhood of .136 (495hp / 3645lb) whereas the Emira will be .133 (400hp / 3000lb). Power and weight aside, the wheelbase of the Emira will better lend itself to the corners than the Chevy.This is the dilemma- that car is nowhere near as beautiful (personal opinion) as the Emira, but it will stomp the Emira performance-wise. Form, or function I guess is the decision.
