I like the side scoop as is as I have grown to like it. What I donít like and never will is ugly rear spoilers. That will be a delete option for me itits included.

At 8:30 in the video, Jeroen shows a lap time of 8:25.

Incorrect. Still just as much camo and fake padding as the others recently.

Noticed 3 things
1) Rear tires are wider than front -- for those who are thinking AWD
2) RPMs never get very high -- so either taking it easy or it's a torque monster
3) At 10:10 in the video coming to a stop sign the throttle is blipped so either it is from the trans down shifting on it's own or it's a manual. I thought it was already in first so why would the trans down shift?

Those side scoops still appear to be fake. Still looks embellished, especially when you see them from the rear 3/4 view.

Based on the license plates, there were four different C8s in that video. Very cool indeed.

Plenty of exhaust sound. Sounds like a N/A V8, most likely the lt2 that forum members are talking about.
Sunday driving it though....8:25

I know the front end has a license plate on it, but do you think the nose looks a little "busy"?
