  • My C8 HTC

    So as most know yesterday was the day for me. My Torch Red 2LT HTC landed at my dealers lot at 8am and I picked it up that same day at 2:30pm. It's been a long time coming. I put my deposit down before all the hype of the C8 reveal cause I was following all the spy shots and rumours for for a year before.
    I couldn't be happier. Nothing buy compliments on my colour combination and design choices. I've only driven it for a few hours yesterday bringing it home but I got lots of smiles, hey cool car man and thumbs up.
    The fit and finish is excellent... well done! As only John and Jeremy knows... I went to high school with someone that is a C8 Engineer at Bowling Green. I passed on my gratitude to him and the Corvette Team. I've never owned a Corvette before, but boy they sure did knock this one out of the park. Some people were concerned about the fit and finish of the convertible top.... nothing to be worried about, it's great. Fitment, materials and gaps are perfect. It looks just as nice with top up than top down.
    I've only been driving it with valves open... I wish it was a little louder in that mode but boy does it sound great. Not sure if you can hear the exhaust in the coupe the way you can in the convertible with top down but I like it. Especially downshifts with the blips.DCT tranny is great, fast and firm. I'm keeping it under 4000 RPMs until it hits the 500 mile mark but so far I'm as happy as can be. Here's a few pics that we took yesterday.

              Congratulations! I think my next one will be the HTC. On the fence because people do love to see the engine in my coupe...

                I LOVE this post. I ordered the black roof and black nacelles as well (2021). Now that I've seen several customer HTCs with the black top, I'm 100% sure that's the way I want to go. Your C8 is beautiful. Congratulations!
