  • C8 Stingray info from Jalopnik

    I'll be updating the site with info from the reveal as it becomes available, here is an article from Jalopnik on the interior:

    Wow, that's a lot of buttons

      The buttons on the bottom roughly 1/3 of that row are exclusively passenger controls, so the driver won’t even interact with them, but gives the passenger more to adjust than in the C7.

      The advantage of the many different buttons is that you can do 90% without needing to start entering the computerized IP screen system once within it to then work you way from one way to another, e.g., to make a single fan speed adjustment, seat fan speeds, seat heat, cabin temp (up and down), etc.

                I am willing to bet that all the buttons and the button bar get replaced in year 2 or 3 by some kind of rotary knob where you get to your function, then press down on the knob to actuate the selected function.

                  There is already one of those in the center of the console next to the gear select buttons. I would guess that most of the functions of the buttons on the far right of the console can also be accessed via the infotainment screen by using this "knob".

                    IF that is true , 495/470. then I got the Horse power terribly wrong, thinking 550+. But I was dead right on the Zero--60 at under 3.0 sec. I'm thinking the weight must be pretty good and/or the gearing is set of lots of grunt from a standstill.
                    Well that leaves unknown the speed up the line, 100MPH, quarter mile, 150MPH and points north, where I will never be found except talking about it.

                    Looks like the TT DOHC versions will be a force .

                    Now, the handling ?
