Default Front lower lip blacked out?

Appears the front lower lip is black along with all the center grill stuff... very Lambo like the fancy version of the Huracan.


Supposed real car.

Mule with center stuff body color.

C7 with black lip mod. Not my favorite.

Lambo

First, I don't think that's the real car. Second, the lines on the camo car don't lend themselves to this being a good look. Just like the C7 where that looks silly because the lines don't support it.

If that picture is real, then there is probably a shadowing effect going on making that lip look dark. But that looks like a chazcron render that has been manipulated to me.

Maybe the performance numbers will be what blows us away!

Based on the leaked order sheet. I would say this is the carbon black option, but you can have body color and grey also. If you don't like the catfish look. That's my guess.

I actually like the blackout versus the way it looks in the camo pic. It also looks like there is no chin spoiler, so that should help to pull the look together.

Catfish is the ZR1, I think it looks great!

Thinking what we have seen so far looks better than a Huracan is a stretch at best (I know, I know...looks are subjective).

Never said it looks better... just that it's inspiration for the look they were going for. I think the blacked out lower lip looks horrible, but then I saw the Hurcan Performante and I guess I see what they were trying to do.

LOL, a catfish with lots of broken teeth. The C8 renders have been gorgeous however. Really looking forward to it.

Haha, that car isn't even real. You talk about a chopped up photo, good lord. They couldn't even do Paint correctly.

I dunno about that. Seems real to me considering how many threads have disappeared with that picture in it.

The blacked out center portion of a lip below a central grill opening is a look I've always disliked. The Huracan's design is a bit different, but based on the original red fascia paint booth leak, I think it might look better body color.

Lamo in the front Camaro in the back, apparently the front and back design teams never met! Once a bug free DOHC is available and it is heavily discounted in about 4 or 5 years, Iíll have one.

I don't think so... there are a few small additional trim bits the "real image" has. Also the fascia appears scalloped around the headlights which none of the renders have.
