Default Saw the C8 uncovered... wow


DO NOT ASK ME HOW I SAW THIS, I CANNOT COMMENT ON EXTERIOR
Repost to my last thread, last thread was deleted ....
The car is a game changer, unlike anything you've seen before. The interior, as I've stated before, is very close in resemblance to the current Ford GT, and Porsche 918 spyder, with hints to the Lamborghini huracan

The steering column, console, the dashboard, is a carbon copy to that of the current Ford GT. Almost identical steering wheel with a digital-only dash unlike the c7 which is a combination of digital and physical, in addition to another screen in the middle, it sort of wraps around the driver side dash. Leather-wrapped square race-style steering wheel with a special emblem in the middle. It's a lot thicker than that of the Ford GT's wheel. Paddle shifters (DCT) will be used for shifting, won't be a manual variation, it's very similar to the Lamborghini Huracans DCT. On that note, there's an Ignition switch which looks like they pulled right out of the Lamborghini Huracan, used to start the car. Obviously, the shaping is a bit different, this one is also a different color....not sure if that will change in the production version.

There is a touchpad similar to that of Daimler's which is equipped in most of their Mercedes models, will probably function as a control for multimedia and writing things out, but again, I think this is stupid. Daimler didnt have very good feedback with it, just a waiste of space, in my opinion, people will just opt to use the touchscreen. To the right of that touchpad is a circle *** that im assuming is going to be used for selecting the ride mode, its exactly like the one in the current c7, just has a silver lining to it.

NOW THE BUTTONS..... THE BUTTONS.....

This is really hard to explain. The controls used for multimedia, seat controls, AC/HEAT ext, they all run in a vertical line on the right side only of the center console. It looks kinda odd, a bit similar to the 918
spyder. Let me know if you have any questions, no, I'm not trolling I promise

Understand the need to be discrete, but how did you come to see the interior? Mule at a gas station? At the plant? While playing Forza? Asking for the benefit of those of us that may want/need something that legitimizes your post. You know how it is...especially now, itís difficult to separate fact from fiction.

Why do people keep throwing this 60k figure around? Who said anything about 60k?

Look guy. You come on a Corvette Forum touting all these details and yet you offer zero credibility to back anything up.

Perhaps if you shed some light on how you came to visibly see the C8 in person would help. Saying "Trust Me" as a newbie don't hold much weight.

Not to sound crass...but the C8 base model will start at $65-$70k. If GM wants to sell as many of them as they did the C5, C6 and C7...then that's what the starting point will be. People who think otherwise have no clue about GM as a company. They AREN'T Ferrari or Porsche etc...I'll be 100% prepared to eat my words in 1-2 years if I'm wrong. Please bring this post back up if I am.

$65-$70k Base
$85/$90k-$115K ZO6 (in 2-3 years)
$140k-$180k ZR1 (in 4-5 years)

GM has always provided the best bang for the buck in the industry. If Porsche can sell a Cayman for $85k and MAKE MONEY on it...then GM will sell the C8 for $70k and make money on it, while providing better performance. BANK ON IT.

Then this is thread #3, since I saw another identical thread at the same time this one was up, with a completely different username, "Password1", also with just one post to that username.. Hmm. Identical threads with two different usernames. Interesting.

How many usernames do you have?
