Jay Leno cracks me up, he is a the classic example of a car guy. "Here, open this", "what's under here", "what's this", touches everything! Awesome, Ed Welburne looked very nervous through most of that vid. Too funny.

Listen to that exhaust roar to life. Beastie!! Great video, Jay seems quite satisfy with it. I also noticed he said he rarely drives anything faster than his ZR1. Cool!

Ed was nervous, as Jay (The Ultimate Corvette Car Guy!) did not show the enthusiasm for this car as he has in the past for Corvette.
Here is a video link of Jay and his Corvette as an example. Note Jays comments in the Vid !

It struck me as if they have incorporated a little throttle with the startup to give it that roar to life sound. Hard to say, but it sounds like it jumps to 1500 or so, then drops down.

This car....is incredible...

Thanks for posting...we are going to see some 'messing-around-type-drives' relatively soon I imagine.

More I see more I like...but I still feel the exterior styling is going to be color dependent....yes again because of the vents and rear...to me the darker colors flow better with the design. That is totally subjective and many will have differing views and that is good. I think they have a real game changer of a Vette.
