  • Large People Fit: 6’5”, 300 #’s & He Fits In C8

    Thanks to Quinten, here’s a video for your consideration from Lethal Garage.

    I know that a lot of you have been asking about how well the C8 will work for taller people, and this is the best example that I have seen so far. This is Matt, a popular guy in the Camaro scene, and he went to Paradise Chevy to see if he fits in the C8. As the Title says, he's 6'5" with a longer torso and about 300lbs, and he does fit in the car with the GT2 seats. He thinks that he can even wear a helmet and fit properly. You can skip to his coverage of the interior at 6:53.

    That is good news. As John always cautions large people should try and fit for themselves.

      I am 6’4” but I have a very unusual build. 165lb and 36” inseam(Think all legs). I wonder if that will make any difference? Does it have more legroom as well as the additional headroom?

          The car has +1” legroom. I personally verified it. I would still try the car first if I had a 36” inseam..

            For me, a more important question is "how high can I raise the seat?". Legroom is never an issue.

              Another comment thanks to a friend and Rick Conti’s VLOG quoting him:

He sat in gt2 seats but when he sat on the comp seats he felt to tight.
              I know the gentlemen being referred to and he is a very kind and very smart person and large (5’10”; 320 pounds)

                When the question is the location of the spare tire on the C8, the answer is on the waist line of some of the potential owners.

                  The gentleman did point out in the video that it had more legroom for him than the C7.

                    I still have not seen the schedule of where this car would be shown with the 125 dealers.

                        GM has not yet released it so we are patching it together as best we can (will be working on one integrated version tonight before sleep). Yes, as Adrenaline Junky noted, it is stickied.

                          Just had the opportunity to sit in a Rapid Blue 3LT, it is fantastic!! I fit with way more room than my C7, egress is better than the C7 and the 3LT interior is really nice. Anyone on the fence about the C8 needs to get in one really give it a hard look.

                          No, no issues at all, just different from the C7. What I really liked was the fact that I had much more room and the ability to adjust the seat more than in my C7. And the rear camera really looks great in the mirror. I am assuming hi def.

                            Do the seats recline at all?

                              They do and more than in a C7. Of course the more forward they are the more they recline.
