C8 Corvette as Fast as a Lamborghini Huracan?

The C8 Corvette has taken the automotive world by storm. It has had the most anticipation, buzz, and mark ups seen on a first year car in a long time.

On top of that the new C8 Corvette Mid Engine set up is stealing customers away from the traditional supercar and exotic car market from brands like McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini. Why pay over 200k when you can pay half that even with high mark ups and get the same mid engine high performance experience even with the BASE model C8 Corvette Stingray Z51?

Wait until Chevy and GM drop the Z06, ZR1, and Zora C8 Corvette models on the market and watch those brands really get hurt.

Will there always be cult Porsche, Lambo, and Ferrari guys? Sure, but for people setting a goal as a young lad or gal they might be putting C8 Corvette posters on their wall soon enough and probably already are with the Corvette C8.R Racing car. That thing is a beast with the flat plane crank engine that revs up to 9k RPMs.

And now article after article after article is coming out that the Lamborghini Huracan 610-4 (yes, their AWD) had almost identical lap times at the Germany based N├╝rburgring lap time!

The Corvette C8 lap time was a 7.28.3 while Lamborghini Huracan 610-4 has a 7.28 flat lap time.

If car enthusiasts weren’t stoked already about the C8 Corvette about the value, performance, and comparisons to super cars and exotic cars in the market maybe this will wake them up!

Maybe those mark ups of the C8 Corvette to $100-$150k really aren’t that bad if they are hanging with cars that are over 200k!
