love or hate the looks (i personally love what i've seen thus far), you have to admit that at 3000lb and 450hp / 400 lb. of torque, that thing is going to be fast

the ZR1 is going to be scary

I'm kinda mixed on that design...

But I agree, it will be a beast and a blast to drive.

Aggressive styling. It's too much for my taste, but it looks like one of the fastest cars in America.

Looks way too busy; the Car & Driver renders from 1-2 months ago looked much cleaner/better.

I would say much less than the GTR with a base price no more than 60k. The market can't bear much more than that without alienating a large customer base.

I have never liked the looks of Corvettes but I am liking this one. The front made me think of the Ferrari 458

The back end is still too slab-sided to be attractive, but overall this is a good looking car. Way to go Chevy. You needed this.

Isn't a stock C6 only around $50,000 MSRP? I doubt they will go up that much in price for a standard C7. Maybe 60k? Still less than a new M3/M4 probably. Z06 may be near a stock GT-R in price.

Hmm, I think the front end (headlights, grill and daytime running lights) look a lot like the '13 SRT Viper and the rear end looks like a Camaro.
