C8 Chevy Corvette vs. What?

The mid-engined Corvette C8 will definitely throw it into a different league where it should be up against the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc.

Now I'm sure power to power, it shouldn't have much issue at all as speculations put the ZR1 engine giving an output of 750 or at least 700+. Not something to bat an eye at.

Which models from Ferrari or Lamborghini do you think it'll strike though?

Always been a Nissan GT-R fan but not so much that I must find something to beat it every way. What my needs all boil down to is a fun street car up to that level of power/swag/status/etc. So that being the case this C8 Vette could very well rival the GT-R in my scenario.

Never been much of a fan of the GT-R but there's no two way about it, it performs darn well.

Not too sure if those looking at a mid-engined Corvette would be looking at a GT-R as well though. There will be a few that are but just not that many. I feel like they're way too different.

I know what you mean, its a play station on wheels that does a lot of the work for you, meanwhile a Corvette pushed just as hard could land you in some tough situations, but its why I like the Corvette. It really lets you know when limitations have been reached.

Chasing the GT-R is never the answer and the biggest mistake some enthusiasts make is using it as a benchmark for performance. 0-60, 0-100 and 1/4 mile run times will only get you so far, along with having all the fun taken out of throwing a vehicle into the turns. Look at something that's a complete 180 like the Carrera GT, its all about feel and connection.

When it comes to high end performance vehicles, I feel like most consumers make their decision based upon the brand that they are most familiar with. While the GT-R may be an impressive vehicle on paper, I think there are still quite a lot of people who will take issue spending that kind of money on a Nissan.
