      Take a guess...what rpm did the computer set for the best launch...

      sounded like 3500 ?

      that rapid blue is the scourge of two seat sports cars this year especially..

      lotus just showed its 416 hp rear mid engine evora 410 in that color on youtube..

      porsche just showed its cayman gt4 with 414 hp in that rapid blue color...

      all with by the way black rims with I believe black or polished lips on the wheels...

      i admire the rapid blue color a lot although I wont be choosing it for myself...

      im tossing white which is quite attractive and torch red which is an iconic color of corvettes..

      ive done black corvettes for the past 12 years and although always stylish and contemporary its time for me to change it up...

        Tanks. Luv it. It does three gear changes crossing the intersection. This will be quick to 100MPH too.

          Plus, correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears the pavement was damp. So we're not even seeing the best the car is capable of.

            I thought so looks damp

              Too bad -- maybe the employee testing the car was worried about getting in trouble for an "exhibition of speed"?

                  I'm guessing he has a really big mirror at home that he looks at longingly every day.

                    Yeah the original video I found was good and only 9 seconds long......and then he bought it and made it 4 minutes lmao

                        I don't believe that's launch control in use. Car is doing a fast idle, then driver clicks into first and floors it. Not how launch controlled start sounds.

                        I've listened a few more times, and also compared to the launch control in my Golf R.

                        So I'm not 100% sure. Reason I'm doubtful is that the idle does not sound high enough. I'd expect the C8 to launch in the 3000 rpm range (Golf launches at 4000 rpm).

                        Or perhaps it was launch control in use but the driver didn't go to the full rpm when on the brake.
