    If I had Jay’s money I’d need a bigger garage and a spot would be reserved for the new Vette.

    Jay, they brought you a car with a govenor so you couldn't ruin it before they crush it, X Vin and all. It is a good platform to drop two electric motors and a battery up front and use it as project car for the Zorra Spyder!

    I think that car is so cool! I am not a fan of the wheels but the shape of the car, the large vents on the sides, and the humps on the back behind the seats is so spot on. I personally would rather have the last gen sting ray. I thought that car was just amazing. My question is can you still get a proper manual transmission on this new mid engined vette.

    Z51 mid-engine Corvette. Are you kidding me? An American Ferrari. This is amazing. Perhaps Corvette will sell this out during the first year, even though it is so clear that there's going to be a lot more available over the next couple of years in terms of performance. AF

    GM JUST DID WHAT ford DID IN THE 1980S with the fox body mustangs.... American muscle at a every working mans price! Only Americans In the past were infamous of this. When a used fox body with after market parts was faster than high end cars at that time was the majic formula of these type of cars, Corvette never had this magic price until this super car model!!! THANK GOD GM SURVIVED 2008!!!.. Bravo to American pricing but with super car performance and Fit!!!!! Not performance decals on fake hoods, It safe to say a lot wives are going to be VERY upset when the high end SUV get treaded in...

    Wonderful video, thanks for posting it! I do wish they'd turned on the Bose when they put the top up just to get some sense as to how much more fun it would be driving around with a fantastic stereo putting out the tunes.

    • bobo lulu
      bobo lulu День тому

      You would be correct. I would say this is part of the 'detuning' of the vehicle for the first 600 mile break-in or run-in period, so that people dont rev the hell out of the engine and pressure the driveline. Its exactly as Tadge said in the video, because of its power, that needs to be reduced so that metal parts have a chance to blend together without being thrashed from day one - then people having mechanical failures later on in time. You will find that every motor manufacturer has a 'run in' period that is told to the new first time owner. In this instance people can get a bit complacent and hammer the thing from day one and this wee part of the ECM program stops idiots beating up on the car for the first 600 miles.
