Default Latest photos are up... Can see the seats

I like it, but I think the fender line is going to be too high in relation to the rest of the car. Wish it "swooped" down more as it approached the a-pillar and door. Also notice the wheels are different than the split-5 spokes we've seen before... standard 5-spoke.


EDIT - Even better photos posted here - http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c7-g...sive-pics.html

Can see the quarter panel vents and hood vent one some of them.

Shoulder "wings" are for support. The holes are there for a customer that ends up adding harnesses. Many HPDE groups won't let you run a harness unless the seat has provisions for them to pass through. GM engineers attend all the NCM Corvette HPDE groups and I'm sure that was a bit of feedback they listened to.

I wouldn't pay any attention to wheels other than the type/size of rubber they are using. Its just too easy to swap wheels.

The seats definitely look interesting

Looks like the two-tone interior is finally getting an upgrade as well! Look at the inside of the A-pillar, those panels are gray to match the seats! Finally a full color interior again like in my C3!

Looks like fenders r flared out in rear also.plus looks like the door has more definition to me cause of the added material in camo in middle of door.

From what I can see of the seats, I prefer the 2013 seats. These camo's seem to have less padding then other shots we've seen. I can see more of the true car lines in these photos.

On middle of the hood where it meets the bumper..the camo drops in like the air vent on a zo6. So could this be the performance model.since it has the seats

Nice catch on the full-color interior. I hope you're right

I hope those are an option and not the standard seat.

Might be ok for you racers but to me they are fugly.

The steering wheel looks pretty close to the ZL1 too.

Can't wait to see the finished product but I'm not sure I care for most of what I'm seeing so far. There's already a ZL1. We don't need a two seat version and that's the way the C7 looks to be going IMO. Very square looking like most of the new muscle cars.

Look how much the rocker flares out as it flows into the quarter panel. I think the padding under the camo is really flattening out the car. I think it will be very curvy when we finally see the full thing.

Those seats look weird, holding judgment, may or may not be offered, center of hood seems to be raised toward windshield?
