Unless GM put a ghosted outline of a C6 on the gauge cluster...Looks like a styling massage vs the revolution I was hoping for.

Look at the 12th second of the video, there are a few clues to some questions. There is a silouette of the car in the center of the cluster, I see round tail lights and the nose looks more like the C6 than I would have expected.

Personally I never cared much for the base C6 styling so if they have amped up the muscular styling of the base model, thats great.

Hopefully the car itself will be radically better at the base level than the current car.

I see at least three different tires. Looks as if the "wide" tires are around 20% wider then the "skinny" tires. 285 vs 345. I'm guessing that the Car has "mini" tubs so that the wider wheels/tires will fit without needing flared fenders.

No, it is just a picture I found when I did a search on '285 vs 345 tire size'. It is a CF thread...

The Info gauge is nice. Got a good shot of the steering wheel, nice too. Looks like there is a clock on the top of the dash. Not sure if it's part of the car or test units.
The new engine seem to sound deeper than the current engine.

Ha! It isn't me. Trust me, I couldn't afford a Lingenfelter. Nor have I ever won any racing or show trophies.

Well, if you were to be given a trophy, it would be for your sharp eyes...
