Agree with your there Kevv - fine looking vehicle. Makes me think however that the 'yardstick' used by so many people is the 0-60 mph time - this method of measuring performance is outdated, and although relevant for lower powered cars is useless really on higher powered vehicles - standing quarters are far more relevant.

That is mental.

I wasn't too sold on the original C7 as a performance car, although I'm sure it's fantastic... This on the other hand really warrants its visuals.

Theoretically the most efficient transmission should be a CVT 'box - should be capable of allowing car engine to constantly operate at the optimum revs for maximum torque for best performance - 8 speed auto is next best thing - its the wat to go!. My old company car was an eight speed torque converter auto - always in right gear at right time - and more economical than manual.

It's very fast with the 8-speed automatic and leaves other cars like the McLaren, Porsche, etc. behind him.

Looks like it performances better in bringing the power down to the road.

Which is interesting given those cars are mid/rear engined, hence should have better traction off the line.

A few other are also 4x4 like the R8, GT-R, Lamborghinis, etc. I know that the 2009 C6 ZR1 had some real trouble in getting the power down to the road and with the 2012 C6 ZR1 it was a lot better with the launch control.

I suspect a lot of the traction advantage is down to tyre technology (and widths!). Those Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2's sound pretty awesome if they can generate 1.2G's. It wasn't so long ago that 1.0G was the best a high performance road tyre could sustain.
