    This test mule was caught by Brendan Macie in the parking lot of a ****’s Sporting Goods. He says the driver identified himself as an employee at GM’s Warren Tech Center, and their latest 0-60 test was 2.7 seconds! GM has done folding hardtops before, the most recent being the Cadillac XLR, a cousin of the C6 Corvette. The roof panel hinge points and the buttresses are inspired by a hint of McLaren 650S Spider along with a sprinkling of Ferrari 458 Spider. How this will work into the engine bay will remain a mystery. They can’t call it a “Spyder” because that name is trademarked by Audi. I wrote Spider vs Spyder awhile back to clear up the confusion.

    0-60 = 2.7!!

      Thanks for the post. While I watched a video showing that 'vert, I hadn't seen the blurb from Dupont Registry, and definitely not that 0-60 time reported. 2.7 sec is amazing!

        The guy that shot the video made the 2.7 number up or misheard whatever the driver said, if he talked to him at all.
