Wonderful work. I have my new "wallpaper", the yellow. My wife's favorite and the color of my current one.

Though I'd really like the color range to get modernized along with the redesign.

Excellent work FVS. Thanks to you and C7pimp for all your hard work. This render belongs on the cover of a magazine. I like how you worked the headlights into the body lines on the front end (like the C7). The coke bottle shape of the body makes the side scoop much better.

Great job C7Pimp & FVS

With the gurney flap spoiler in the back I wonder if this is the Hi-Po version, and I'm kind of surprised they kept the same top rear-fender intake as the C7, but this looks absolutely phenomenal

Outstanding work! Thanks so much to FVS and C7p for their collaborative efforts to bring us these images!! These renderings and the methods used to inform/create them, truly has made (and continues to make) the anticipation and excitement so much greater... and fun!

These renderings truly reflect that the next generation Corvette will be revolutionary!!

Thanks guys!! And keep up the outstanding work!!!

I like it but that rear spoiler does not fit well into the overall design.

I had the same question/complaint. Based on this shot of the beta, I'd guess the render's greenhouse is definitely a bit too Camaro pillbox-slit low. A minor adjustment would get the greenhouse a bit airier, which I believe will be correct...and much nicer looking...

Great drawings of the c8 and I guess looking at that spy shot above the greenhouse is a little bigger than the drawings...

Great work guys

This view has a pretty strong perspective going on. That's all you're seeing. We did the best we could working off the C/D rendering to capture all the elements.

We are doing more angles, so wait for the whole package to come.

Thanks to all who have contributed ideas, renderings, interest and excitement to the quest including C&D and ACS

This is the first rendering we worked on - Front/nose view. We will work on other views and post as we nail down the details as close as possible.

I know many members have their favorite color so without further ado...

According to C7pimp...this is it!

(more or less)

Enjoy!




















Can anyone edit one of the renderings into a Lambo green?
