Corvette Reveal

It's a shame we still have to wait for the new M3/M4. Here is the new Corvette. There are multiple videos. The reveal is the last one on the page. Reveal starts at about minute 21.

It's bigger, but lighter. Apparently more CF in the body panels. Rev matching sounds interesting. Hope it works better than the Nissan version.

Posted some pics over in the M3 vs. forum. Looks stunning at first and on the video. The rear is very Camaro but I think still works. If it has a good interior (looks nice in pics) it should sell very well. The Z06/ZR1 will be monsters...

I think my M needs a garage mate! I owned a 2007 and it was nice, but I really like the C7...especially since I can't afford the Viper GTS and my M.

I'm sure the performance will impress, but the term "overwrought" comes to mind. Looks like the designers didn't know when to quit.

impressive.

Even if you don't want one....it'll make Porsche and BMW work harder in their designs....

Some say there is no "cross-shopping", but most of my friends have tasted both sides of the menu and have come away with respect.

I love it, though it seems to have a bit of a resemblance to the GTR.

I know. I was just poking. Maybe I should've used some quotes or something.

The back looks dumb. The rest of it looks good though. Very aggressive.
