And I think it's pretty hot.

If I'm still single when I turn 40, maybe I'll be able to justify putting out the 60k on one of these (well, by then it'll probably be more like ~75k).

It's all right, it ain't no Stingray that's for sure.

FWIW CDT Vettes are rather comfortable for me, maybe if you weren't a Jolly Green Giant with banana fingers you could get in one.

I want one of those engines.

The car would be alright for cruisin' and bracket racing. But I don't want to have to climb out of one several times a day again.

I don't know how low to the ground it's going to be, really. Corvettes usually have enough ground clearance to not be like you're on the pavement.

The new engine (LT1) does look nice. Although I'd probably wait to see what happened when they get the C7R put out as well as the new ZR1.

You'll still have more HP in a Cadillac CTS-V (has the 556 HP 6.2L supercharged LSA) then this car. But the Z06 and ZR1 variants will probably supercharge this one, which could produce some eye-popping numbers.
