Default Changes coming to the 2019 Grand Sport - spy pic

Local guy posted this on FB, said his neighbor is driving it. It is definitely rocking the Cup wheels, looks to me like a Grand Sport. But new fenders, hood, bumper, rear bumper and roof? interesting to say the least.

Not sure how anyone could tell if it has "new fenders, hood, bumper, rear bumper and roof" through that camo. What I do see is that it still has the front fender spats, so it's not likely it has new fenders.

I just assume they camo the new bits.

Looks like a C7 with camo, nothing too new or exciting. I guess we will have to wait until GM makes the big reveal.

You know what they say about assume. I see absolutely nothing new under the camo in that photo.

Looks like an old (early 2016) camo spy shot of the pre production'17 Grand Sport.

Only if you hid something borderline obscene in the "camo" pattern.

Like the old holographic images that you could see the image about the time the migraine set in from staring at it.

Fake News. Have no idea why Conti would stoop to such sophomoric behavior. Really quite embarrassing.

He's just having a little fun. Give the man a break. It was amazing to me how many people 'off the street' were aware of the coming ZR1. They weren't offended that Rick was putting them on. No one should be.

Conti is a real fisherman. Throws the bait out and waits to see who bites. I thought the vlog was great.

Yeah, but I think this stunt is going to be hated more than loved or appreciated.
