    During the first year no car will leave the lot at under $65K, and I bet dealer "added profit" will be ~$10K min in a lot of locations.

    By modern convention, the C8 is a Supercar, along with similar vehicles like the Huracan, the R8, higher tier 911's, etc.

    It's likely that the ZR-1 equivalent will have a ~200hp front electric motor, and around 800hp from the (turbo) V8. So hybrid at the top end.
