Was it a purchased car or did it have manufacture or dealer plates?

No one has purchased a C8 yet. Production expected to start in December.

When I was a Carlisle regular (C5/6 registry person) I got to know a couple GM engineers quite well. I got a chance to take our a couple of their cars, that they drove up with manufacture plates on them. On the ZR1 he told me please do not damage it will take me weeks to fill out all the paperwork, and in the next breath " any tickets are on you"

Once the C8 is in the hands of the public there will be more like that.

I was actually thinking the same thing.
The terrain actually seemed familiar too.
Not necessarily the same area, but a road cut out if a hill like the pics above.

You are correct. You both have a great memory. I had to look it up via Google:

Dilrod crashes C7
