Not that a single soul will cross shop the i8 with any Corvette, so I'm not even sure why we're discussing this.
Obviously every car has plastic bumpers, however plastic that is so thin that you can see the ripple when driving is a little tacky. Yes he drives the car hard, the way a corvette is supposed to be driven (not abused) and sure, there are some that drive their vettes on the weekends and countless never have to go in for anything but routine service.
