Looks about right. Well played.

I'll take the front clip but they can keep their wing.

Not a bad render considering what was known by the middle of FEB. Looks good

Love the front rendering, but as Phantasms said, not a fan of the rear wing.

Love the car -- hate the wing -- but if it's functional for the track boys -- I'm all for it. On the street; way to ricer for me -- sorry

Yup, that rear wing is obnoxious. I hate those on any car, not just 'Vettes.

Form should follow function. A track purposed car should have a rear wing. Looks tail happy without it.

These kinds of cars (similar to the ACR) are purpose built for a race track. Hence a rear wing for downforce. They aren't designed to sit in a garage being waxed or drive to Cars and Coffee. Nothing wrong with any of this, but if you don't plan to drive on a race track or don't require the additional downforce provided by a functional wing then you are looking at the wrong car.

I like that my Z06 will still be the top Corvette without a wing. I hope they make it ultra expensive so we don't have to look at 10,000 Corvettes with wings driving around town.

I don't have any problems with a track ready Corvette model. It should be stripped of extra weight and be a bear bones car. NOT a car for wannabes.

I won't buy one. In fact, I'm done with Corvettes after I get bored with the one I have. Eight of them is enough.

I bet if the new ZR1 broke all the ACR track records, all of a sudden everyone would love the wing...

Pretty sure the ZR1 is gonna be a C7 not a C8.
