I think this is the first time I have actually been impressed by anything that General Motors had built. Good job.

I am just glad they gave it a C-Pillar. That wrap around rear window made the car look sooo cheap and old.

That rear end is hideous on the Camaro and is hideous on this too. Wheels and headlights look like ass as well. Other than that it looks pretty good.

I like the look inside and out all except the steering wheel. I don't know why, it just makes the car feel dated to me for some reason. I think old GM cars...

Bravo!

7 speed MANUAL transmission. For people looking to keep 3 pedals, this may be one of the very last option for such on a newer car.

That fact alone has gotten my interest.

Much better looking than the Viper too.

It would be very impressive if that happened. But I don't know that they can shave 200lbs off this car without heavy use of expensive composites. The weight of the corvette should be applauded as even the base model weighs less than a 458 Italia.

It really does look great. The two things that stick out like a sore thumb are those horrendous taillights and that cheap plasticky interior. Why is it so difficult for Chevrolet to design a decent, classy interior?

It is not. The interior is wrapped in leather. Reminds of the extended leather option on the M-cars. Nothing carried over from the C6.

I think some real life pics of the interior are needed. Dash is all carbon fiber, with aluminium accents.

It looks very very good in the front 3/4 view, but that rear ruins the car. It's too vulgar and overdone IMO. I'm particularly NOT a fan of those cheap looking "vents" around the tail lights.

Big improvement overall though. I suspect that it might look better in person, let's wait and see. Maybe in black it would look even better since it might help hide the overdone shapes and vents at the rear.

The back does look a little weird, especially considering that the taillights are not round (I think thats a first for the Corvette). But still, I think its badass looking.

The headlights need to be color matching. I think the Z06 will look even better with a wider body....I like, however I won't buy it...

Honestly I like the departure from the round tail lights. Tried of seeing yard men's pickup trucks with corvette round tail light conversions.

The rear vents by the tail lights have a slight mp4-12c look (just on a much smaller scale). The overall car has a 458 vibe.

This car in black will look mean as hell.

It seems the fit and build quality still leaves a lot to be desired though...

Dont be so quick to judge. These are not production ready cars. Besides, have you looked at much higher end "luxury" brand cars lately?

Looks awesome! But it has too much European design influence in it. It has lost touch with the all American muscle and design just like the old days. But again, that has been lost since the new camero and previous style vette was designed!
