        Agreed! The first photos coming in the cars were dirty, poor lighting. This one and the photos of the black one parked really look good! Like black is supposed to. I was beginning to think black just didn’t work on this car.......WRONG!

          That car had a Kentucky dealer plate on it. I thought all the mules so far had Michigan manufacturer plates

                  Nice can’t wait to get tester in these cars.

                    A video is not a test. But it appears to hook up and go quickly, without traction or gear change "drama".

                    Only journalist testing will tell. But of course the C8 team have tested it inside-out, then adjusted the "variables" to attain their goals.

                    Suspicious about the weight implications. But. The engineers have juggled the weight to the HP to the TQ to the Gearing to the traction and all the variables. Could have added 50 or 100 HP or pulled some weight. But they compromised it to the balance that it is . So configured they are weaning it out into the wild. What to think?

                    So. need to see the Black Beauty tested.

                    Weight: In mid engine form, the Z06 version will probably be lighter, rather than heavier than lower performance Stingray. Generally that is the pattern in ME cars. The reverse of the FE pattern.

                      A few take personal take-aways...

                      1. This dude totally stalked this driver. I get taking pics on the parking lot... the driver was nice enough to spend a few minutes with them, then he totally stalked him.. not cool.

                      2. The calipers, seat belts and stitching are tennis ball yellow/green. The utube dude even said what is that color, lime green? It seemed that the driver almost defensively answered YELLOW! I was thinking Torch red w/yellow calipers (i.e. Ferrari style) but this lime green doesn't cut it at all.

                      3. Guessing Z51 Package... did u notice how short first gear is? Wow.

                      4. Yeah black is sexy no doubt, but IMHO i think you lose some of the cool accents of the car.

                        Man, at dusk the black shows off the lines like no other. I haven’t had a black car in ages though and don’t think I could live with it. Looks fantastic after a fresh wax though.

                          Nano-ceramic instead, a lot less work and last for years. My Z06 has never had wax, and it still super glossy thanks to two coats of CQuartz Finest.

                            Today - for sure, CQuartz 100% but I haven't had a black car in years (and likely wouldn’t own another) - was just a general comment. Click image for larger version
