    This is good to know. That Euro orders will not happen till mds 2020. Means there will not be a Euro impact on immediate inventory. Does anyone know about the Asian Market???

      The Australian market is already excited because a RHD version will be available. https://www.whichcar.com.au/news/202...ngray-revealed

      As for Europe, the C8 will have to go through their emissions certification procedure. I studied the emissions standards between the US and Europe and as far as I could tell, a US spec vehicle will meet them in theory. Not sure how the testing process affects this though.

      European prices have sales tax included - typically around 20% although it varies by country.

      The situation in the UK will be interesting. There's a lot of snobbery and status associated with cars there (I'm English), so I'm fully expecting a lot of snide comments and faint praise from their press. I'd reccomend that GM double the price for the UK so that it won't be seen as a "cheap" car. Nothing worse.

        But european has to be registered until 09.2019, because the current C7 vette can't be registered after that anymore because isn't not machting new european pollution regulations. So there clearly will be a pause for new Corvettes in europe

          The standards have not changed, but the test procedures have been made more "real world" and with Euro 6d (the latest), the limits of deviation from the standards have been tightened. Obviously they would not have bothered to certify the C7 for sales beyond Sept 2019 since production is ending, so I don't see any significance in that.

          We have not seen evidence yet of the C8 being tested to Euro standards, so we just don't know, but you are probably correct to say there will be a delayed availability in Europe.

            Yeah, you are right. Only for the EU Camaro it is pretty disappointing that Chevrolet didn't go for the lastest Euro 6d Temp regulation (I guess they would have to reengineer stuff to implement a GPF). But for Corvette it's totally reasonable that they don't invest in updating the C7 if the C8 is on the horizon.

            I'm looking forward when first export corvette models will be spied. But to me it seems like Chevy already build the C8 with export markets in time, since the mirrors are pretty big for an us model, so hopefully we don't see dumbo-mirrors on eu models anymore
