The C8'S low weight, combined with the weight distribution/traction and gearing advantage are critical bonuses off the line, but they have rapidly dimishing value as speed increases. They are not meaningful once up to speed, especially in straight-line racing.
Also, total weight of a car has NO real effect on the ultimate top speed it can achieve (assuming unlimited room to do it) other than maybe the slight change in the tires' rolling resistance.
