I think this proves that the new GT500 is a super car as well as the c8 corvette

13.8 seconds? Jesus, that's terrible.

The C8 Corvette is a closeted pig. It'll end up almost like a Mustang II, slower than the generation before it. Without launch control the C8 is slower post-60mph than the C7 (this is WHY the cars aren't allowed to rev past 5000rpm within the first 500mi), and that applies especially to the Stingray and Z06 versions.

The GT500 has come from nowhere to absolutely within my field of "vision" if you like. DCT is the icing on the cake.
