Default Corvette salesman slips and tells the price of the C8

This salesman slips and tells the starting price on the base C8 Corvette and that it is going to be delayed. If this price is true I would go out and by a C7 or C6 ASAP! because the used Corvette market value is going to go way up in value.
Starting around 12:30 on the video. I hope he doesn't really know what he's talking about

Good luck GM 140kish MSRP and top off at 210k.
Let's ponder for a minute. GM who is downsizing with layoffs & plant closings is coming out with a base ME well above 140k. Huh, I truly appreciate you posting this very informative video, I am now very informed and will start saving up a few more penny’s to afford this great deal.

In all fairness, they will be competing with situations like the below. A new Mclaren with 3-year unlimited mile warranty that is not having issues wink, wink like the ME that is in development according to his video.

On this site below a Mclaren, a dealer has markdown 570S to $189,900 and you can get it for even lower than that number... This new 570S has 3 miles with a 224k MSRP. with real carbon fiber 0 to 60 under 3.3 seconds with ceramic brakes not like the steal little rotors that are on the ME testing on the Nuremberg. Plus a Front lift system which is only a 1,500 dollar option and people on this forum have the new ME front lift at 3,500 plus option to justify their 169k overinflated starting MSRP.
Okay I am done ✅

He's just trying to sell more C7's. What a phony POS.

He doesn't even know that the black out decal on the ZR1 he is delivering is for the b-pillar and not the targa top. How can you trust him to know how much the ME will cost?!

Absolutely,
you cant put the base C8 within a 20k proximity of the 911.
That would be stupid.

BS! There isn’t a dealer or salesman in the country who has any knowledge whatsoever at this point in time on the pricing of the C8. They’re guesses are probably not as good as any true Corvette enthusiast.

If I see anything that even mentions streetspeed717 I immediately take anything they say with a grain of salt. I can't stand that clown...

Anyway yea, I doubt any of this is real.

I seriously doubt that any salesman anywhere knows the price of the C8. I would bet GM doesn't have the exact base price set yet! Like many he is speculating....and off by about 80K

This guy is a complete tool box. He knows as much about the pricing of the C8 as I do....which is absolutely nothing!

so this guy has the scoop but furman, conti or anyone else from dealers with much more clout than this guy/store seemingly know nothing. GM hasnt even admitted the car exists and is going to extreme measures to keep whatever is running around shrouded in secret. but some guy who maybe sells 10 corvettes a year has all the answers

sure

He lost me, @ :20 into the video. "I do believe this is going to be the only year of the 2019 ZR1." Of course its going to be the only year. They're not going to be building 2019s next year! Bwahhaaa!!!
