    Agreed. I think the c&d photos were based on the leaked fascia photos and what has been captured of the mule in the wild. I see a lot of folks bemoaning the C8.R captures...but i think it looks great, with 1 caveat: I dont like the shape of the taillights, how they protrude out the edge of the fender. I guess i know how purists feel now when the C7 came out lol

    I heard the sound clip--it does NOT sound like a Corvette.

    Could be wrong, but doesn't sound like a flat-plane crank, either. It has little in the way of revs, unless they're really loafing it around.

    If it is a V8, the firing order is way off.

    BUT... It looks FANTASTIC!

    To me it sounds a lot like the ferrari 488 flat plane tt...some hear a v6, but the faint v8 growl is distinct, if higher in pitch than the glorious growl of the 5.5L pushrod we have come to love. When the ford GT lets off, there is a distinct ‘farting’ noise from the waste gates which the c8.r did not exhibit...anyway that is my take on it

    That camo doesn't hide the lines to well, if I had a way to remove that camo and replace it with a solid color to get a better look.

    YES! I was trying to put my finger on what it seemed to look like, and that is exactly right. It is very similar to an NSX to me as well.

    BMW ran a V8 in their Z4 race car for several years and a V8 was never offered for sale to the public.

    I think we can go one better, Raff--that's beta-testing the production C8, IMO...

    It sounds totally different from the C8.R posted earlier.

    And, actually, it sounds different from any version of the C7--but it's most certainly a V8.

    I was struck by how quiet it was (maybe GM looking to sell a bunch in Europe?), and that the tone was a bit more refined the the current pushrod-motor car. My $$ are on a DOHC motor...

    All my .02!
