No, I was saying that I don't care how many numbers it has, it's still a Corvette. Thus, I don't care about it.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic, but I'm guessing you are. It is not anywhere close to one of the best cars in the world.

And thanks to such "automotive racisme" in Europe we don't get American and Japanese cars (Ford Raptor F150 and Toyota Supra for example), Americans don't get European cars (BMW M3 CSL for example).

No. The rumor said it was going to be 635HP. They beat that. Links are all over the internet. The one from above was The Detroit Free Press. Here is Motortrend: http://wot.motortrend.com/1406_2015_...of_torque.html

How many of these will be wrecked within a week of their release that is the real topic that should be brought up with this much power.

I'm looking forward to it, so I can drop an engine into my BRZ. You think the trans and diff can handle it?

Our trans and diff will die with that much torque.

But you cared enough to say something about something you don't care about ?

How would you know? It's a great car and many do regard it as a super car..
An affordable , reliable one. You may not like them.. But that doesn't change the category it competes in or the super car status it seems to have garnered..

That's a ridiculous amount of power. I owned a lowly 2007 Z06 with only 505HP. It was too intense to drive daily on the street. It was setup more for the track and too compromised for daily use, IMO and experience.
Too much mechanical grip and high limits require faster speeds to fully enjoy.
I never felt comfortable with that car and preferred to drive my other slower
Car on the track.
In the right hands it's a great track car and very capable..
