    Thanks for posting Rufus,

    "The Ferrari looks more fragile than the C8, like it might break down on the track"......that's when I stopped listening...

          Just a little Bias! No doubt that the 488 is a great car but lov'in my C8 HTC. I was very disappointed with the door entry handles on the 488. Also love the additional storage with the C8 for road trips. Having the choice without consideration of price, I would choose the C8.

            I was hoping for a comparison of their handling on the road, but no such luck, although I doubt I would have believed whatever he had to say about the Ferrari anyway. A poor comparison given his obvious bias towards the C8. But you can't dispute the fact that for the price of the Ferrari being shown, you could almost purchase 4 of the C8 convertibles in his video.

              Nice to see the similar styling side by side
              I think watch the new Magnum PI just to see the 488 - I love is elegant lines even if its " less aggressive" than the C8.

              Best to watch video with the sound off, IMO.

                  The 488 is more elegant, the C8 more brutal. Neither is right or wrong. I'd have one of each were money no object.

                  Well, no, not really. If money were no object I'd get an F8 or SF90 instead of the 488.

                  As far as the video goes, I'm so done with vloggers who think I want to look at their faces instead of the cars, so I didn't watch more than about 10 seconds of it.

                    He had one thing right. The C8 is a significantly better value bang for the buck.

                      I saw a 328 GTSi yesterday, that is a LITTLE car compared to modern sports cars!

                          Hey Rufus, I saw a new red C8 about 3 weeks ago on I-205 just south of Salmon Creek. Was that you?

                              That's a great find. Thanks for posting. Finally someone did a proper side-by-side comparison of the two spiders. For the money, you can't beat the Vette. But if you got the money to buy a Ferrari you're not too worried about the money.
