On American tracks the C8 is much faster, same case as on the Nordschleife, but it's slower on the other German tracks. Hmmmmmm

I have a feeling that the M8 is going to be the most overhyped car in the next few years. All of its numbers are inflated, its being compared to sports cars and supercars.

not around a track. And out of those 2, I know I'd want to drive the C8 a lot more. And it's half the price too.
