E-Ray Versus Ferrari F8 & Lamborghini Huracan Evo
The new E-Ray is still not available to order, but reviewers are getting review cars to “test out”.
Using Jason Cammisa’s signature time-freeze video technique to show the outcome of a ¼ mile race, and explain how it happened, by walking back through slow-mo time at the finish line, is exactly what GM was hoping reviewers would show, the $104,295 (starting price coupe) E-Ray versus other high-performance sports cars. In this case, the E-Ray is pitted against a Ferrari F8 ($283,950 starting price) and Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD ($248,295 starting price).
I don’t want to give away the winner, but let’s say the “competition” has some explaining to do to their potential customers.
The Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation is giving you the opportunity to win a 2023 Corvette Z06! The Grand Prize Z06 is a Coupe offered in Elkhart Lake Blue and features the Z07 Performance Package with Carbon Flash Metallic ground effects and high wing spoiler. Inside is a 3LZ trim package outfitted with a Sky Cool Gray interior and GT2 seats, and the car rides on aluminum Spider design wheels in Satin Graphite with a Red Stripe. Your donation of $25 or more helps to raise awareness for Amyloidosis, the disease which claimed the life of Corvette enthusiast Chip Miller in 2004.

Andy K’s 15 Corvettes.
The 1958 Convertible was the first Corvette I ever saw (I was only 11 years old). After owning a 1974, 1980 and 1984 in the past I finally bought my 1958 dream car from a dealer in Minnesota. It’s in great condition and I drive it every day that I can.
This awesome example came to us from a gentleman up in Northern California. He only managed to put a bit over 4k miles on it before we were able to pry it away from him!

This 1968 Plymouth GTX was acquired by the current owner approximately nine years ago and subsequently refurbished. The car is powered by a 440ci V8 mated to a four-speed manual transmission and is finished in dark blue over blue upholstery. Equipment includes body-color 14″ steel wheels with hubcaps, HD four-wheel drum brakes, a four-barrel carburetor, a dual exhaust system, chrome bumpers, and a push-button radio. This GTX comes with many show awards and judging sheets, a Chrysler Production broadcast sheet, a Galen Govier report, 2014 dyno results, and refurbishment records.
What the Critics say about this GTX:
“An X with manual steering/brakes AND 4 Speed (yes!) just a smattering of options to make it good (great!). Very nice dyno numbers for a stock appearing for 440. And it sounds as it should too, thank you thank you for NOT choosing cliché trashcan mufflers!”
“An iconic piece of American muscle history. Gorgeous GTX!!”
“Gorgeous example of Mopar brawn. I’ve always been a Ford-Mercury geek but these get my respect.”
Conservatively Priced at: $100,000!
