Apparently, there are folks around here who don't understand aesthetics are in the eye of the beerholder...

Aesthetics indeed.

Put the Corvette name and logo on the back of that albatross and it would be laughed at by the auto press and Porsche Fanboys.

It seems as if beauty to some is anything that says Porsche.

I thought the new McLaren GT resembled the C8.

I noticed this earlier today too when I saw the pic floating around the Net...
It really does look similar to the C8 mules.

Well, that is pretty ugly, no doubt. But for sheer mass, it can't touch the C8's badonkadonk!

No, not close. The C8 won't even be as sleek as the present Ferrari.

Come on guys, it will be a very nice looking car, but to compare it with a real exotic like Ferrari , let alone a La Ferrari is just plain silly.

Actually it was the lens used, but yes it's distorting the car some.

Why? Nobody is saying it's going to be "as fast" or "as good" as a LaF, just that it has styling influences from the LaF. GM has a long history of having Ferrari-esque design cues in Corvettes. As shown, the C8 appears to have a little LaF in it.

Of course, that's true. No argument with that whatsoever. But some general and relative observations can be made regardless of aesthetics:

For example, relative to other ME's the C8 appears to have a massive, flat, butt. Relative to other MEs, the C8 appears to have an extraordinarily
short nose and gigantic mouth. Relative to the Ferrari F8, the C8 appears to have little or no fender peaks. Relative to other MEs, the C8 appears to be fueled by cheeseburgers and gets low mileage per dozen.

It's all relative.

There is absolutely no fiscal, branding, engineering, or marketing reason the C8 or ANY Corvette can't and shouldn't be a powerful and sexy as hell design statement--regardless of price

NO EXCUSE!!!!!!

Relative to other ME's, the C8 is heavily camouflaged. There's still hope....

Uncanny...both have four wheels, a long hood, side view mirrors and two doors. Beyond that, no, not really.
