    I'm very pleasantly surprised by the value for (spec sheet for now) performance.

    Under $60k for a mid-engined, 495hp car with a dry sump system that can handle 1G lateral acceleration. I'm assuming they have been paying attention to the on-track overheating problems they had in the C7 so we won't see a repeat of that issue. Hopefully the improvements in rigidity means that it will feel more precise than it's predecessor as well.

    Watch the video of Jay Leno trying to get in one. It's no car for someone 55 or older. And yet vet has been branded as the consummate midlife crisis mobile. Irony.
