            Sure looks like it.

            I hope they have winter tires on it. Otherwise it's going to be an "interesting" drive in those conditions.

              Aren’t they supposed to come with an all season tire?

                A/S tires are a poor compromise for a high performance car. The tires we have seen are Michelin Pilot Sport 4S which are summer performance tires.

                If someone was serious about driving the C8 in winter, then it really needs a separate set of wheels, smaller diameter to make use of more freely available winter tires with a higher profile.

                  This is a golden opportunity , for someone who knows how, to infer dimensions of the C8 by comparison with known dimensions of the car behind it...

                    Is that a CRV?

                      IDK. Could be a Forester, or some Toyota...

                          From detailed scaling with professional equipment, fvs and skank separately concluded that the height of the C8 was either the same as the C7’s (48.7”, or perhpas a little lower), that its wheelbase was within 1” of the C8’s (at 106.7”), it’s length is about the same as a C7’s (maybe a touch shorter(, but its width is greater on the order of a couple, perhpas even there inches wider — like a GS or the C7 Z’s.

                          At the same time, full disclosure, they both noted that it is impossible to know whether a car they scaled from, was 88 or 91 degree perpendicular to the camera, that those comparison conclusions might be off a little bit.

                          They also used the two known measurements we are postive of to reach their conclusions, e.g., the rear license plate width and the exact diameter of the C8’s PS4’s (as we have seen that tire on the car, and through TireRack know their exact diameter).

                              I dunno about you guys, but I really like the proportions on the C8. I looks very balanced front to rear and top to bottom. Hopefully it will maintain that post camo.
