I get a distinct "Bat Mobile" feeling about this design. Maybe it's just a little over-the-top.

The front grill is a nod to the C-1. I always loved the Batmobile. The tail end just needs some very MINOR refinement to accommodate a rear plate and maybe soften some of those hard angles between and below the lights. Other than that, it is perfect. I've already established my "Stingray" savings fund. If they build it, I will buy it.

Default Needs work

If this is the car I was waiting to buy I,ll keep my c-5 or go to a c-6 dont like the front at all and the rear needs work not real fond of the tailpipes position or how they slot into the rear hopefully GM can do better than this or my moneys going to aftermarket mods and a c-6 just dont feel the c-7 at all .

The front looks ok but the back end is hideous...

Its a rolling blind spot, not a sports car. No wonder GM is going out of business.

Cool concept car.

Some of you guys need to realize this would never be a production car. Terrible visibility, the rear tail lights being partially obstructed/not very visible, and just the overall extremeness of it.

However, a lot of the cues may find their way into the C7, which would be a good thing. Some of the ideas and shapes on this thing would be great in the next production car.

I dig the return of the split rear window, and think about how many concepts look "spacey" at first but turn out absolutely amazing. Some tweaks to this concept and I think it will be one of the best looking cars on the road no doubt... this and the new NSX

have faith

Take this one for a spin: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/show....php?t=2295606 shortcut to top and bottom of page 3

It's equally divisive but interesting.
