Your Lottery Z06 Christmas Present

Tired of waiting and want a long shot to get your Z06? I have two friends who between them have won three new Corvettes. Is this your Christmas self-present? https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...iversary-coupe. Might you be the third friend who wins a Corvette lottery by buying just one ticket? Of course still going to be many months until you are driving it, but if you win a heck of lot cheaper than your/my other plan.

  • N’Ring Video Coming In Now (Updated)

    UPDATE: Shorter videos first, then 12 minute one thanks to Carspotter Jereon in post # 5.

    Thanks to Corvette_Nut for finding and posting these Nurburgring videos. I am wondering if all this testing just before the reveal is purely a coincidence, or ???

    Last September we got extensive C8 videos. Might they be coming over the next few days?

            At 8:30 in the video, Jeroen shows a lap time of 8:25.

              Good eyes RedDropTop. Clearly they are still learning the track, not yet in full on mode. Thank you!

                Great video. I could watch that all day.

                Some thoughts:
                • What a cool job that must be!
                • They prolly don't get paid a lot, but the perks more than make up for that. Please see above.
                • It must be mentally exhausting to do that correctly.
                • GM is getting TONS of data before they sell us this car to hopefully work out any bugs.
                • As RedDropTop above notes, 8:25 lap time??? Kinda slow? I know there is a big passenger, but... Could a manual timing with a phone and the passenger cause it to be off a second or so? I suppose so. I don't have much coarse experience, except for the one day that I took my new at the time SS Camaro to Lime Rock Park here in CT. And that was 25 years ago. What do others think of that 8:25 time?

                  Please ignore whatever times there are now. This car is definitely under 7:30 when the results finally come in. The 2014 Stingray, segmented times, was 7:33, and the C8 will handily beat that.

                    John to your point to ignore I agree because they also are not on a closed track as you can see in the video there is lots of traffic. No way you can lay down a record time with that many cars in your way.

                      Also, manufacturers know that competitors or the public will be out there timing them. From what I've heard, they will deliberately ease off at certain places during the lap just so nobody can get an accurate time.

                      Edit: At about 2:00 mark, we can see the front turn signal is actuated and it's location is inboard from the main projector lens, about the middle of the housing. Assuming that they're using production lighting units, of course.

                      Edit 2: Anyway, thanks for the video Carspotter Jereon, and thanks Corvette_Nut and John for posting it here.

                        On that car they are not production taillights. So, maybe not production headlight systems either.

                          Seeing the C8 testing at the Nurburgring again brings lots of smiles.

                          Enjoying my Shadow gray C8. What a car it is.

                            Ok.

                            Where is “Walter.” Get him over here. “Copy. On my way, over.” 🤭🤭

                            Maybe.....just maybe...a true story.

                              It would be nice if we got another teaser before the reveal. Today would be the perfect day to do it lol.
