    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.

    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.
