Default Dreaming of a C8 like this.......

When I see pic's of this Italian,I just about wet myself.........
HST, the General started with a clean sheet of paper, so what could be was endless. The pic's I'm seeing, either in camo (basic shape), or what CF render artist Chaz is showing me is just not doing it for me. Could it be that the whole reason we're not seeing any uncovered spy shots is because _____________ (you fill in the blank)?
Look at this:

Whadya' think .....

1. That car probably costs $500,000 if not more.

2. That car has no usability or cargo requirements at all.

3. We haven't seen the uncovered C8 because it's not 7/18/19.

I like Ferraris, they're beautiful, but I want a Corvette that is mid-engine... not a Ferrari copy.

Ferrari clone with a GM engine and drivetrain is fine with me.

How much is the ferrari f8 ?

Open your wallet even wider for a ferrari like the one you ve posted...

if the c8 renderings arent doing it for you then wait until the c8 reveal in fifty days and decide if you prefer the f430...

they seem to running about the same price as loaded c8 s should go for in the first year...

of course 3xpect higher running costs on the ferrari yet depreciation based off the older 360 ferrari as a model ahow depreciation of the 430 should be minimal compared to a new c8 over the years..

i hear the f430 is pretty intense in driving experience...

might serve you better.

That's not an F8... it's the new SF90 Stradale just revealed today.

That Ferrari is Pure Sex on wheels.

No Viagra needed for this bitch.

No way the C8 will look half as good.

You put a GM engine and trans in that SF90 Stradle, sell it for less than $120,000 and there will be a ******* wait list for years.

I'd buy 2 of the *******.

Car was only unveiled a few hours ago and people are already complaining the back end looks like the C8.

Just an awesome car. But this is one angle that IMO is a little awkward looking and way too busy.

I like it, but the front looks more Mclaren than Ferrari, and that is a bit disappointing.

Kind of reminds of the Aria, at least the front end does.

If GM exactly copied that Ferrari SF90 design for the C8 it would probably have these C7 Specs, for Golf Club and average age Buyer demographics.

Id still buy it, enthusiastically.


A rough guesstimate

I'm pretty sure all of these "It needs to be as good looking as an exotic hypercar!!!" people are the same as the "IT BETTER NOT COST MORE THAN 60K !!!" people...

Why does it matter how much money it is? Looks don't equal cost.

Go ask Hyundai about that - they seem to get it.
