Corvettes in the snow = Sin.

At least a good find and that side scoop looks different.

Apparently, GM was/still is road testing in Europe. The pictures below were literally taken one month ago in Germany on 01/08/2019. Go Figure...

The ME winter shot looks totally cool (pardon the pun)!

Agree that the proportions look great on that shot... next to that SUV.

Nice to see something "new".

Great find Corvette_Nut... thanks for sharing!!

Car is huge. Look how long between the wheels.

Makes the c5 look like a cupcake in comparison.

The C6 has the best rear hatch ever. Would be nice. Love the extended nose and correct side scoop.

LT1 under glass.




Love to see it here.



Correct scoop and extended nose.



Glass hatch.

I donít know if itís this ME pic on my iPad is distorted to look too long overall and between the wheels. Thus I measured the the roundness of the rear wheel rim. My results below then after adjusting the ME pic to shorten the length by ~9.0%.

Comments as to how my adjustment result displays on your screen. Interested if you see it differently.

Being afraid to drive a Corvette in a little snow = Sin (fixed it for you).

There was a picture posted somewhere in here of a C7 and ME mule parked nose to tail. They appeared to be almost identical in terms of exterior size.
