They might be able to run comparable lap times on certain tracks, but thats only one comparison.
Just as drag racing is only one comparison . . . and frankly, why would you buy a Corvette if you want to drag race? That's like buying an X5M to use as a track car. Sure, it can do it, but that's not the purpose of it, at all.

Default C8 with at least 500 hp base model for under $70k

Hi all,

I love the speculation, here goes mine! Base C8 will have at least 500 hp but up to 550hp. Will do 3.3 to 3.4 0-60. Best part is can get the 1LT version for just under $70k. Bank on the above. LOL.

That would be 650HP. Uh......no, I don't see that happening in a ME, base C8.

Default No way 650 hp on base, IMO

Base will not exceed 550hp.

I think base will be under 500.. and have lots of torque becaise it will be a TT maybe even a V6 (think ford gt but smaller turbos and maybe a 3.3L).
