The C7 Z06 is a $90-100k car not sure where you get your pricing from... used ones go for 75k.

Wrong. It starts in the low 80s. Where do you get your pricing, lol?

I guess GM abandoned the idea of setting an exceptional lap time that the ME C8 cannot match for a few years until its top dog appears.

Default Well!? ;)

They could just make a real watered version of the C8R!
If they are smart! IE The 720s' getting back to basics! Bigger aero, slicks, and the 720s is a race car.

I'm still waiting for the C7 Z06 times that in 2014 were to be issued shortly.

It's only a matter of time before people realize these "performance times" don't mean crap in the real world.

Anyone here realize this, yet?

Think about it...

It will be interesting to see if they release times. C7, nothing even after the "shortly" comments. 2 performance vehicles at GM (same division) and one (Camaro) posted times/video before the tires had cooled off and Corvette held on to it like it was a nuclear launch code.

The published ring times are nothing more than marketing BS. The relevance for the typical buyer is nil.
