    I consider the engine in the 458 Speciale and SA to be the pinnacle of ICE...possibly forever.

    So far they haven't made one in production. So the only thing you can do is google C8 corvette Zeus Bronze and see the prototype.

    Seems to me all the first run cars were white, red, orange, black, metallic blue, and ceramic gray. Almost no silver. No Long Beach red , yellow, rapid blue, or Zeus bronze yet.

    Zeus Brown looks great with the all natural interior color IMO. Seen several around here.

    Also the Pewter wheels instead of silver.

    If this were a Ferrari color combo Fchat I think would love it. Looks something like 60's Ferrari colors.

    The bronze with camel interior was what I was hoping to see. a convertable may look a bit 360ish... a gentlemens racer. very cool!

    Yah I'm sure 2021 MY now. They have so many coupe orders to fill first and adding Verts will slow down the line.

    Did you feel that the gas pedal had a lot of travel? I found myself adding a lot of pedal thinking I was close to the end and then as I'd work the pedal down a bit more I realized there was a good bit left (more than I anticipated). It feels like a falling rate throttle as well...where the first 50% of the throttle gives you 80% of the blade movement. I think they got the steering feel per mode dialed in incredibly well. Light and simple in tour and heavier with great feedback in track.

    If you're bored and want to hear some C8 straight pipe goodness on a road course, skip to the 1:00 mark and turn your speakers up.



    Full disclosure: I'm doing the driving.

    I too really like the bronze! Was also wondering why none have been seen out.

    Oil change (I didn't know oil level is checked while the engine is running - dry sump system)
    2:20 drain plug?! You see the size of that thing?! (that's what she said (sorry))

    Dry sump. There has never been more anst than with dry sumps. WSM's need to be read and followed. Some DS motors running to check. some to temp /shut off/within X minutes. Over fill usually means oil sucked in the intake and fouls motor trigger mils etc etc make tail pipe smoke, fouls sensors.
