That looks bad azz! Very sweet, but will it take a bag of cans in the front at 75mph? (sorry, I had an accident on the highway yesterday and wrecking my paint has got me all twisted up).

Although it looks good, that's just someone's photochop of a Z06 that was taken in front of a dealership. No relation to any C7 concept. The original unchopped version of that pic is floating around on this forum somewhere.

Headlights need work, other than that, it looks good.

GM is finally waking up.
Please get rid of the dam smile face front end of the C6.
It's weak an less than inspiring. The new Camaro looks better.

Well, I think the new Camaro looks fantastic. I don't understand what people have against it. I wonder what Camaro addicts think of it. To me it is the best looking Camaro since the second gen sharknose of the early seventies (up to model year 1972 I believe). Everything that came after that one just didn't have it IMHO.
But the new design is great. True to the original, rough looking ... Really American I think ...

And nothing of those factors can be seen in the uninspired, wannabe Euro design in this thread

Cheers,
Maarten

How about last year's Geiger C6-Z06 with their body kit?



Couldn't even be bothered to photoshop out the dealer license plate in the Munich showroom window.

Looks mean but not the right look for a vette imho. Looks like an orgy occured between the 4th and 5th gen f-bodies, a supra, and a lotus. Great look but under a different badge.

I myself would immediately trade in my Z06 for this car. If you guys knew me...that is saying A LOT. Change is good. I think a lot of people would get used to it over time.

So you call this 'change'??? This is yet another revamped C6/C5 in my book ...

I also think 'getting used to' a design is not the thing we should be looking for ..

Just my 2 cents ...

See post #13.

It's an existing C6, nothing more. You can buy it now.

To me, the vette represents something with the whole package. The chop looks like a drag car. Stance, rear wheels, and lines are not what I would expect.

However, it is a sweet looking car. Like something batman would drive when the other car needed work.
