I'm glad someone said it!!!

Maybe it's the fact that I am on a diverse number of boards with Mustangs, SRT8 Owners, F-body owners, DSMs, etc but it seems they are mellow when it comes to respecting other cars and appreciating the good things about other makes and models.

With how much the 5th gen costs I can't imagine the maturity level here is low due to age of ownership. Maybe it's the new car smell?

It's certainly faster (the R8), but it's not that much faster (as some here would suggest)...I just think it's neat that with a few minor modifications here and there...which you KNOW will be done by any self-respecting Camaro owner ()...The R8 will have to actually try to keep up.

But then...with cars like the R8...isn't that Corvette's job to beat it down? Even the new V10 isn't quite as good as the ZR1.

Once it is over saturated like the Mustang, then it won't turn heads as much but it still won't stop.. I posted the pictures above because the R8 does not have many unique features in comparison to the TT or A5 if you see them driving by on the road.. Yes when you drive it around it feels better than a porsche and should be better than the stock SS Camaro for the $120,000 price tag or more if you get the Lambo's detuned 10 cylinder one..
im going to very respectfully dissagree.



The R8 has been on the road for 3 years... Iron man came out after the R8 had already been for sale for 2 years.
