Hi all, just having a bit of fun with all of the speculation in this section. Just remember, before reading and/or replying to anything make sure you have a salt shaker handy, take a few grains first.

I do wonder how they came up with such brilliant car names, Manta Ray is enough to switch cars almost, need to see.
Though a quick solution is an aftermarket Stingray badge replacement you can buy on Ebay.

Traditionally, the wide body won't be the base model.

OK, here we go:

C8 Base - Manatee

C8 Upgrade Pkg 1 - Manta Ray

C8 Upgrade Pkg 2 - Sting Ray

C8 Upgrade Pkg 3 (top of the line) - Zora Kingfish

As I understand from my source (sorry, still can't disclose) the hybrid will be along in a year or two and will be names the Electric Eel!!

I hope you're all as excited about this as I am. Imagine, one can start as a Manatee and wind up the Kingfish in a couple of years.
If this is true, this **** is GAY!!

I would love to drive a new Kingfish in Sapphire red over the Mystic Knights of the Sea lodge hall.
