The "pre-IMSA" cars with the 7.0 were much cooler still though...

You gotta know GM is laughing their collective a** off at the renders on here knowing full well that the camo and disguise did the treat to fool everyone that caught a glimpse of the cars on the road.
One thing isnít certain: We will all be shocked when the C8 is revealed.

Agreed.
There is only so much that can be hidden under the camo.

Holy ****, you're RIGHT

The line from the top of the rear goes over the nice hips and then slants down across the door all the way to the front fender it looks like - she's curvy.......that's how I like'em ;-)

Compare to the 'Ring photos. The camo artists changed some of the lines on those 'Ring C8s. Just like I told you guys.

you guys are being fooled by all the camo and extra add-ons, that isn't even the C8, I was able to catch up to it and strip it down and found out it's a Yugo.

I did a GM event in 2011 and shared some track time with the GT1 era C6R's, as well as a few C5R's....monsters. I have to say though, somehow they make the current 5.5 sound like a beast though....idk.

If it looks anything like this I'm all over it. C7? What's a C7?

My wife and I saw one on Christmas Eve, driving the mountain roads east of San Diego. I suspect they house it in Yuma at the GM proving ground, since I have seen the same covered auto truck in both places. I turned around quickly to get a picture, but couldn't find it again. Though I only saw it for 10 seconds (winding mountain road) my first and only impression was that it was MUCH MORE AGGRESSIVE than the C7. The nose looked much lower and more raked than C7.

Better check that pricetag first...unless you aren't a pricetag bound type-a-guy.
