I'm interested for sure. With my e63s being reduced to ashes, I want something quick again and wow is this (in theory) a lot of car for the money. I have had a G8 GXP (manual ), CTS-V wagon (auto ) and other random GM V8s (Quadrasteer Suburban, Saab 9-7x Aero) before and for all the deserved flak GM gets for its interiors, it's tough to beat an LS if there's a good transmission connected to it. The aftermarket for the C8 will be unparalleled too versus anything else in its class. Wouldn't be surprised if the base C8 can keep up with a GT500 on a road course.
