Took off today to do a mini photoshoot with RedHot. I mean after her notoriety from the NCM ad she has been asking non stop ;);) So off we headed to Valley of Fire just a bit outside of Las Vegas. The park has great curvy roads, gorgeous vistas and amazing rock formations. Unfortunately the sun rise that I was hoping for was blocked by clouds, but managed some pics anyways. I continue to be incredibly pleased by how well RedHot handles. I drove many of the curves that I had done in my Porsche but faster and with more confidence in the C7. The tires on her have incredible grip. So here are some of the pics

Even the natives were curious:

She insisted I get in the picture

On a nice straight away in the park I did my first attempt at 0-60. Did two trys, same time, did not really push it.

You inspire me! First of all, I guess I need to name my new car. Second of all, I need to give her a photoshoot too! Those pictures were awesome!

Nice!! finally got on her.. They love that..
That was in Touring mode.. So I am guessing you didnt try the launch control? I am still wondering if the autos have a real launch control. Do not know if transmission can disengage clutch.


Those photos are so gorgeous!!!

And I agree this car handles incredible. I have only gotten to about .98 Gs (tires werent warm enough) but so smooth.

Only thing is when the tires are ice cold below 40 degrees the car will over steer a little.

Enjoy the car.

Thanks GQ4Life. You are correct I did not try launch control. But it sure jumped on it without any effort! :cool:
