    What a great Engineer.... from an Eng to another Eng , he did clarify every bit of specs this C8 has.... And what a nice car this is awsome 👌🏼 I'm definitely buying one later this year a Z51 package but i like it with the Targa top off even tho the Hard top convertable is nice

    Come on Jay! We didn't win WWII, the Russian's are the ones that took Berlin that ended the war. It's great that so many people say that but we didn't even join the war until 2 years after the start. I bet you think we won the Vietnam war too.

    After the incredible reliability disasters that have befallen literally every single person I know that owns a Chevy, I hope and pray this C8 doesn't have the same problems because it's otherwise revolutionary.

    I do have to question if this is more difficult for a mechanic to work on and needs a specialized team to fix instead.

    the hardest thing to do is engineer a good product at a low price point. it seems like for many decades the big 3 in america was focused on how to make cheap expensive and the asian car companies were trying to make quality affordable.

    Tadge is just fantastic. A regular cornucopia of engineering knowledge, and also steadily patient with Jay's constant interrupting and lame questions. I actually avoided this video for over a month because I can't stand Jay anymore. But thanks to Tadge and the greatness of the C8 itself, I found myself watching the entire video. Thanks GM, and thanks Mary Barra and Mark Reuss for pushing this one through. I can't wait for my first drive of the new chassis.

    All these amazing makes and marks of super cars and hyper cars are great engineering and design works of art and technology. However the ‘Vette still stands out as the best bang for the buck, while sacrificing nothing. I can actually afford one. Thanks GM...

    In 67 my love affair with the Corvette died with the 68. Then I saw Zora in a mid-engine test mule with eight big pipes pointing at the sky...and I waited for Chev to build it. I'm now 73 and my order has been in since July of 2019. I've been toughing it out with Porsches, a Jag, yatta yatta and most recently two 4c Alfas and a Giulia Quad. I have waited all my life for this Vette and now i learn that it is all i could have wanted. Chevrolet built us a clean sheet car that sits in supercar territory right out of the box! And gone is the plasticky dash and buttons. It sounds great, drives like a track car (if you want) and has tons of room for seat adjustment(didnt expect that). And, if you have never experienced it, the vision of pavement and no bodywork when coupled to the wonderful NON-TURBO ( thanks, Chev, again) is going to knock your sock off! Bose 15 speakers! Auto lift for bumps! pushbutton exhaust! What a magnificent Vette. And the price is wonderful. It is killing me to see them all over the internet. I plan to fill the front with money and get in it and go. That is, if it ever gets here.....

    Sad attempt of Chevrolet to compete with Ferrari.
    Ford already did the work back in 60's.

    Is that car drive-by -wire? And if so it should be super easy to make it right or left side drive. Did anyone notice the bit of struggle Jay had getting into the seat. I would have like to have seen him get out of the car.

    My wife told me Chevy put the #1 C8 built on auction for charity. It sold for $3 million.

    Since this ones going in the crusher shortly why limit it?
    It's not like they have to worry about long term engine wear.
    Or they could have at least driven it 500 miles to seat the rings and such before giving it out.

    Stealership too far from home and unlike Mercedes, they don't provide service loaners so I'll take a pass on first year model and look again 2021.

    The rear window is power "up and down". Do you know how cool that would have been in the early 80's before the drunk driving laws got tough? :)

    This just might have changed my negative opinion of the Corvette. Word of advice to GM. Next time you decide to show Jay the greatest technological advancement in your company’s history, you might want to make sure the RPM restriction is off

      @Steve Radanovich Not true. The engine was designed in the last couple of years.

      You're entitled to your opinion but I think a 2020 mid engine Corvette should not be powered by a 1955 engine.

    American ingenuity. Very interesting interview.
    Beautiful looking Vette, still there will never be another Vette as sexy as the Stingrays. They will have to go real retro and I don't see that happening.

    I feel like Jay doesn't get certain hints at times. I was waiting for him to close the back window and side ones too, just to get a sound test of how quiet it is. It's not the same as being there but try it. It doesn't hurt to press a couple buttons. Oh well.
