That is literally a 720S Coupe with a shitty render of C7 headlights, a wing, and a shitshow of multiple ugly side intakes.

If the c8 looks anything as good as the 720s we have a winner for sure

This little rascal has peaky fenders and a pointy beak, a modern mid engined C3.

Too bad you won’t be able to see those pesky fenders from inside the car. The view out the front will be only the bottom of the windshield.

I've been saying this for a while now. When all the camo comes off the C8 is going to clearly be inspired by the C3. Shorter hood because of mid engine of course but a "modern mid engine C3" is my guess.

It’s all in the angles.

These images are from from slightly below so the fenders appear more flaired.

They are are trying to mask the nose a bit more and the rear hatch as if the Ring photos don’t exist.

Nice try GM... ; )

I have a feeling this car is going to be less bulky than many of the renders.

Interesting to see how small differences in camo and accent lines/bulges can so completely change the look of a car.

Yes, we can see that. Why would the scoop start at the side skirt?

2 different parts of the scoop so air can go to different things?
