Well... I'm already starting to like the spoiler more... pay close attention to how the sides integrate into the rear bumper. The rear bumper appears to have a "shelf" on top of it made just for the spoiler. The spoiler kind of comes off the back of the car at a 45 degree angle. Also, I'm starting to think the “wing” elements will look awesome with the convertible top down and the twin buttresses. Yes... I'm starting to do a 180.

TH, I’m liking that spoiler a little more too. And I think because this video appears showing the rear facia and spoiler looking wider without the spoiler looking so tall.

Is that a European spec’d front license plate holder we see holding that GM factory plate? Could explain the ‘snaggle tooth’ look width for the front facia center section.

Well... given the euro plate holder is wider than the center panel I would say it was not "designed for the euro plate". It was designed to efficiently shove air through the side inlets. There's a frunk behind it so can't have a full open center.

First time I have noticed the back glass without a cover on it.
But,yes the spoiler looks pretty good on these.

I see how effective the camo has been in making the rear end look really flat, but from that angle you see how convex it is. I really like that.

Those tires are pretty narrow.

I saw those too... no idea. Seem too low to be suspension. Thought maybe ducts for some kind of cooler, but isn’t that what the side scoops are for? Plus they look low and at risk for hitting. The Stingray rear ducts are under the chassis like that but they don’t hang down. They cool the rear brakes.

Anyone else?

Fronts are 245s like the C7, but tears are a decent 305. Mero said they do this to hit fuel economy targets. The 245 front on my Z51 Stingray was very inadequate on track. Moved to a 295 square setup and the car was far better. These cars need front tire, but the ME should need less.

plus, the OEM engineers have to make the car underateer from the factory so a small front tire helps that.

305's...just 30mm less than the 335's on a Z06, that is a little over an inch. Not exactly skinny like the C7 Stingray and its 285's. I'd be willing to bet that you can stuff some 335's on one and get the fat tire look. But they look plenty fine to me.

I'm going with rear brake ducts, if they mount them to the bottom of the A-arm they will never hit anything unless you run over some large road kill.
