Interesting title given that the C8 vette costs the equivalent of 43,000 sterling in the US; Import fees are rough i suppose. Really wish american cars were more affordable overseas and consequently more accessible

Checks used r8s here in America, no where near as close in price ! Used cars are worth a lot more here unfortunately 😕

I don’t really care too much for the new Corvette, if I’m being honest. They went to all that trouble & probably spent a lot of money redesigning pretty much the entire car.. & then they just threw in an engine from the early 1900s.

I remember Jeremy Clarkson reviewing a Audi R8 and even a Corvette. I'd take the C6 Corvette ZR1, one of the best body styles and it's around $50k.

sadly with the MR2, the tax on that older engine will make up any reduction on insurance over the R8

Classic R8 is the best R8. I don't understand why they abandoned that look. They should make a ''Classic edition'' with updated specs but the same look at Gen 1. I bet that would sell like hotcakes.

Got very luck to get an MR-S as my second ever car. I originally wanted a MK2 because I loved the looks but from all the research I've done the SW20 is a bit of a turd stock, I wanted an ultimate cornering machine and the ZZW30 is just that. Snatched one off in Germany for 3k with a hardtop before they rose in price after last winter. The looks already grew on me too.

The R8 is looking at the the C8 and thinking, i’m passing the ‘poor mans’ supercar baton to you mate. Nothing screams I can’t afford a proper supercar louder than the C8.

3rd gen MR2 = affordable fun 1st gen R8 = similarly fun with better engine sound and more creature comforts C8 Stingray = insane fun and the most expensive of the 3 due to being the only new model yet still relatively cheap compared to most mid-engine cars of the era.

Rather have the R8..... Stingray C8 is a nice car , but i am curious how the materials and interior hold op in about 10 years from now.... until then , i have the r8 thx...... And that MR2 is just plain ugly and in the days it was way overpriced new for a half celica/half corolla without a roof.... better compared a Honda S2000 against these....
