Great video, sounds like a N/A V8 with DCT

You can see the fake side scoop paneling distorting from the wind force at 1:52-1:54 in the video.

Looks even better in motion than the stills from the other day. Can't wait to see the final version.

Good shot showing the sculpting of the hood and front, lights, etc.

**sarcastic tone** Come on now...that's all camouflage....You know that they would never do something that drastic.

Look at the surface of the hood from 2:43 to 2:47. Does it appear as wrap pulled tight over hidden features?

I still think the front and rear ends look bulky, but am hoping it's just the camo.

Looks that way. In the other thread earlier today I said that the two body lines going down the middle of the hood were not visible on the pictures and are definitely part of the design. It looks like you can see it here on the windshield end peeking through the wrap. Sneaky sneaky!

Maybe that whole trapezoidal piece on the front of the hood is fake also to hide those details.

Since we caught them, they might as well release full studio photos.

Yep more details than we first thought from the pictures from GM. This video shows us a lot more details as they cant control the pictures and angles.

Seeing it in motion definitely puts out the wow factor. Sounds great too.

Thanks for posting. This is the first high quality audio footage we got correct? How does it sound to you all? Definitely a V8!

Great video, sounds like a N/A Push-Rod V8 with DCT
Not 100% sure it's a pushrod... there were some small parts where I thought it reminded of the LT-5. Hard to tell because they're not really on it/winding it out.

Seeing it in motion though is the first time I actually kind of liked it. C7 hasn't grown on me yet either. Just something about the 7 that I don't know why. It's cool but it just hasn't done anything for me... back to the 8, the rear should be a little flatter, it seems like there still may be some padding. Also imo, bringing the whole rear bumper in 2 inches would help with the side angle, it just looks oddly long there. (Maybe lower the top of the rear an inch, the back looks tall and bulky but for packaging I suppose it needs to be.) Otherwise not a bad looking car.

Thanks Pimp...glad to hear the signal is strong. With breaking news, you heard it here first...one of the "test vehicles" was spotted with a weird door opening mechanism that could be said to resemble the vertical hinges of high end exotics. Off the record discussion with the driver said that this is not the vehicle that many are speculating and that they are having fun with the disinformation campaign. You heard it here first...stay tuned for more breaking news....
