Yep, that's a good noise.
In the months following the C8 Corvette's release, we've seen owners modify their cars with a bunch of different exhaust setups. There have been muffler deletes, custom long-tube headers, and whole aftermarket systems made for the C8. This fully titanium setup might be the best yet, though.
(Skip to 11:52 in the above video to hear the C8 with the titanium exhaust equipped.)
Made by 3:16 Speed, this exhaust system is assembled entirely from titanium, and doesn't have any muffling. The two pipes that connect to the headers meet at an X-pipe before exiting through two dual exhausts, fitting neatly in the factory exhaust tip areas on either end of the bumper.
The Daily Driven Exotics YouTube channel managed to get ahold of the first version of 3:16's system for its C8, and immediately put it to good use. It gives that 6.2-liter pushrod V-8 a nice, throaty burble and a loud top end. We're into it. And for $6000, it's not too expensive, either.
