  1. If we were talking about the C7R I’d totally understand the Thunder correlation… Sorry, but it just doesn’t fit the new C8R… However, don’t get me wrong, I like the way the new V8 flat plane-crank engine sounds and look forward to hearing it first hand at Daytona. Best to Team Corvette!!!!

  2. JB,
    Absolutely correct. The C7.R will be the last of the true deep “Chevy Thunder”. The European fans at LeMans always loved and raved about that sound. While the C8.R will sound “okay”, it will at least sound better than the Ford GT. (as would anything!)
