So for an additonal $40,000 you can have an AMG that is no faster in straight line, and slower in the corners.
The Corvette is a performance car super value. If you don't like it, that's cool, but bashing it's performance compared to a more expensive car that is slower is just stupid.
Well they have been bragging about the new LT 427. I think they might be sand bagging the HP numbers, but they have been say 405hp. Both the camaro and the mustang have surpassed well over 600 hp. I honestly think it's only a matter of time till they make the corvette a hybrid. Because that's what they do.
