  • sometimes the earliest example is purer without the spoilers & Wings

    Not to mention the smaller engine ...over time that is as this youtube video describes

    i happen to is the cleaner purer even smalller engined example that is truer to the original concept that many collectors prefer

    i prefer the purity and clean lines iver the final examples with massive wings and body kits from the factory..

    might hold true for the upcoming c8 as well...although being mass produced it will barely ever make collector status...

    Harry is a cool old brit. He infact has a later lp5000 so the insights are quite interesting.

    enjoy and say No wings or massive spoilers for our first year corvette c8s !

      Pretty cool car. Plenty of engine noise in the cabin.

        I remember my favorite car back in the late sixties was the lamborghini muira which the lp400 replaced...

        it was like a stake in the

        but the early clean version of the countach were pretty cool too...

          Agree completely. Both about Lambo and the C7. I like my base model C7 without a spoiler, or side skirts, or a front splitter.

          Also ws in love with the Miura.

            Having owned a LP400s for 24 years I will say the original LP400 to be much more user friendly, a good friend owned an LP400 and we would swap cars during the Monterey car week for a couple hours and the LP400 with 14" wheels and tires road better plus you never had to worry about curbs or steep driveways. I sold my car 3 years ago but did put over 18k miles on it duringClick image for larger version
