Not a fan of the blacked out center mouth... hope it's body color as we know it's not a grill/inlet. Other than that.... that's probably close. The side scoop may be more curved like the CERVIII.

Front end looks longer. Might be just the angle. If its close to this....I like it.

That looks more believable than anything else I've seen so far. I like what I see but would love to see the rear view too.

I don't know how to post links or pics, but if you go to motortrend.com and look at the "2020 cars" pic #8 of 48 has a rear view.

Maybe close, but still don't think anyone has the side scoops yet.

Back is so much like Cadillac, typical rude big *** not elegant. Why cant these people design a car like the rest of the manufacturers in the world? The only company that has these sharp pointy corners with massive dimensions is really Chevy/Cadillac.

It’s all ghettoed up with the silly trim pieces, especially on the side scoops. Horrible. That side scoop is way too blown out of proportion and the car would look so much better in all body color.

I think the camo cars are hideous.
I am praying that the huge side wings, and the rear spoiler, are all fake, and that the final product will look like the new McLaren or Ferrari 488 GTB.

See...that's what's wrong with this forum.
Next, I suppose you want the car to have an engine....

And don't forget this gem they published 4 months before the C7 intro:

I agree. And I am PRAYING that stupid "wing" is just to throw off the look of the back end and NOT a production part.

Looks the same as all the other renders.....God I can't wait til the real thing shows up so people can stop all this silliness. Of course, then it will start all over with the Z06 version....

Normally Car and Driver are way, way off (see; C7 Renders)

This however, this looks legit - just slap that Viper Scoop on the side and I think this is it.

I agree with you. Why does the side scoop have to look tacked on? Why can't the body be the body, not a body with a bunch of after thoughts attached, glued whatever. It's not like they would have a version without a side scoop.

The sidescoop for the engine rear air inlet and the rear wing looks ridiculous.
However, the rest looks similar to the mules.
