need to say that a bop blessed semi-prototype car compensated much engine weakness

Iíve no idea if the race debut of the C8 Corvette is dependent on the road car version being on sale? Just got this info regarding a delay on itís launch, which was news to me, but may not be to others.....

Did not like that the Corvette C8 Stingray reveal was red not yellow. If I could afford a Corvette how could you NOT get a yellow one?

Would any of you consider a Corvette of any other color than velocity yellow if you could buy one? For me its hells no.

Did you watch the release show? It was an America and space age fest. They started the show with 2 astronauts and then went in to all the Vette and astronaut tie-in. The 3 cars driven on were red, white and blue. But I do agree think they missed the great chance to show off the racer at the same time even if they don't announce the specs, the GTE car just makes the look they wanted even more pronounced.

The C8.R and the yellow will come when the Z06 is announced, same as the C7. The C4, C5, C6, and C7 were all launched in red for the base model and the C6 Z06 dropped in velocity yellow too.

Given that the C8.R has a wildly different engine than that's in the base C8 you definitely have to hold on for the model it's actually based on.
