It has a hybrid motor with mediocore performance by today's standards. 0-60 in 4.6 seconds is pretty average for any sportier car these days.

They could have used thish platform for a really high performance machine but to roll this out with very average performance figures and a 3300 pound weight is really nothing special in my view.
Have you seen hour much plastic is on a corvette? I am talking from dashboard to rear bumper. It's just not quality. CF gives wright reduction and BMW is implementing that in their vehicles.

BTW, my friend's Z06 had three transmission less than 30,000 miles on the odo.
