Default New C8 video from Yuma - GM President in Passenger seat

Saw this on Youtube, I believe its a new video of the C8 that has not been seen before. Looks like the GM President is in the passenger seat, Yuma Arizona. Dual caliber rear brakes.......

According to some on the forum... dual rear brake calipers is an exotic performance option usually reserved for Lamborghinis and McLarens... gives you amazing stopping power for the side of the car that does 15-20% of the braking duty

Just another YouTube narcissist filming while driving. Too bad he didn't run into the car in front of him. That's would have been hilarious.

As usual, this video was shown early yesterday morning on midenginecorvetteforum. They are consistently ahead of all Corvette Forums with breaking news.

Purely painful to watch and listen too. Rather bang my toes with a hammer.
