Ran a lowered M3 with a competition pack and a Mustang 5.0 through the hills of Highway 1. Let me tell you, folks; it just doesn’t get any better than this.
Please believe me when I tell you that my silence on the new Corvette isn’t from lack of interest. Rather, I have been looking up so many pictures, watching so many videos and reading so many damn articles on the new Corvette that I just have yet to actually get around to putting my opinions on this blog.
I will say, when the Jalopnik renderings first came out, I was not excited. I thought they had totally ruined America’s sports car, but the second that car rolled out on to the stage last week, I instantly fell in love. The side profile, the front end and yes, even the back end. I love it all. I love the all-aluminum frame. I love the 450 HP engine. I love the functional fins. I love the new exhaust design. I love the interior. I love it.
I will say I probably won’t like the rev-matching transmission. It didn’t work for the 370 (in my opinion) and I doubt it will work here (even though it’s a different design all together). Obviously, I won’t know about it until I try and it can be turned off.
Also, please people, stop saying this thing looks any different than what it is; a Corvette.
Just look at the damn thing next to the old one. Except for the back end, all they really did was stretch a few lines here and there, which gave it a really radical look, but really isn’t all too radical when you boil it down. You can’t say they copied Viper because they started designing this long before the Viper ever revealed their newest offering. As for those that say it looks like a Ferrari, well I would have to agree to the extent that it also has four wheels, two front headlights and is low to the ground.
Honestly, even with a net worth of less than zero (far less, actually), I would somehow find a way to attain one of these (selling my body is a definite option) if I didn’t know that a performance model is just around the bend.
Well, if you don’t like the looks of the ‘Vette you should probably unsubscribe from every major auto publication… because this thing is going to be plastered everywhere for some time.
These cars are based on the amazing science of magic and testicles. Only in America, my friends. Only in America.
Are you a man? Then fucking act like one. I don’t want you to go trade in your Prius. No, I want you to fucking drive it off a cliff. That is the only way you will regain your manhood. Also, go ahead and follow your Prius off the cliff.
Sack up, America. Especially you, California.
This woman is my hero. If I could be as cool as her and 20 years younger I will proclaim my life a success.
