It should take 10 years and you should have to pass tests in every season. Like in Finland. Finland producers some of the best drivers in the world.

I was driving vehicles 10 years before I got a drivers license AND I never had a problem solving my Rubik's cube.

OK, here are my number one and two. But C8 is still very good looking to me, especially for price.

To be fair, Humfr you are a gentleman from a time when ppl are taught correctly about respect. Last 40 years? not so much.

He didnít say for a given price. All he said was one of the best looking cars in the last decade. Considering all the supercars, hypercars, concept cars, bespoke cars, etc that have existed in the last decade, some of which are close to rolling art, the C8 isnít even on my radar.

Fair enough, as you said, this is subjective.

That's why I asked what you thought was a good looking car.

This seems to share a lot of lines that are reminiscent of lamborghinis IMO. I cant really rattle off a ton of cars that trip my trigger more. Pricing and attainability may cloud my judgement there, but these convertible shots and the C8R, damn.

I also didn't say "the best" I said one of the best.

I know, which is why I said you said, ĎONE of the bestsí.

It is subjective. Everyone has their tastes. There are people who love the curves of Ferraris and others that like the edgy lines of Lamborghinis. To each their own.

There might be several cars in a given brand that does it more for me like from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti, Koenegsegg, Pagani, Porsche, etc. From the sleek Aston Martin One 77 to the edgy Ford GT, there are many examples.

Looks like some of the first "wild" revs towards the end and some good option footage. Haven't seen anything more current with them driving or revving, lol.

I saw coupe and convertible in Newport last Saturday at the Audrain's Councours d'Elegance. Impressions from pics were not decieving, it's a semi-exotic-looking car that's a bit big and a bit too busy in styling details... Too many hard lines, some at awkward angles. I greatly prefer this, which was at the museum along with some other great GM concept cars:

Early 70s mid-engine "aerovette" concept. Small, clean design, quite a contrast vs. the C8...

I always liked the appearance of that concept but if I recall correctly from when it was fist shown there were some things that made it unviable as a production car. Like for instance, I believe that the side windows could not be rolled down.
