Default La Ferrari resemblence???

Saw this pic of the Laferrari today and I cant help but think of the pics of of the cloaked C8. Anyone else? If it's even close to that it's gonna be earth shattering if they can keep the cost reasonable. Looking forward to 7/18

It doesnt really resemble, you know why? Because these two cars have some style whereas the C8 has this big boxy back

^So because the back appears boxy, the fronts don't look similarly pointy???

One is elegant and is curvy the other is outright rude and pointy.

It's going to have the greenhouse of the new NSX and the scoop will be La Ferarri'ish

The C8 mules look more like a mix of the NSX and the 458 Italia to me.

I think Acura did a fantastic job on the NSX. Although $158K is a lot of money. Better price the C8 way under that.

Then NSX is a tech heavy "halo car" for an affluent and exclusive customer.
The C8 is "just" the next generation of the Corvette, all be it an entirely new platform and layout.
It will certainly be priced WAY under the NSX.

All the ME cars look similar to my uneducated eyes. I prefer the long hood look of a FE sports car.

It's too bad the C8 didn't go back to twin round tail lights - that always gave the Corvette presence on the road.

C7 was sort of an upgrade from the C6, certainly the interior was.

Who knows, the C8 might surprise everyone in a good way.

I'm starting to think these cars are so far out there as far as exotic look that I will feel like a tool driving one lol.
