Ooh yeah -very nice!

Some subtle design cues from the C3 (1963-67) coupe in that roof line and rear window I reckon.

A few too many exterior tack-ons for my taste. Keen to see it in a nice grey or black.

I miss the old muscle car days of the vette, it is starting to look too much like a race car or an exotic, sort of leaving its muscle car heritage behind, but i wouldn't knock one back either.

Looks awesome but it's what I would have expected a C7 ZR1 to look like, not Z06. Still, no complaints from me, it's tough as!

With Top Gear being such a SUPERCAR orientated show and they're last test of the Vette Clarkson was'nt too impressed. Especially the floppy plastic rear light panel!

I think GM are trying to break into this market now with a car that gives huuuuge performance for a very reasonable price.

Lots of curves, the design doesn't look like an American built/styled muscle car, if the thread didn't say Corvette l would have thought a Japanese or Korean styled car.

It looks very aggressive. I like the cockpit idea for the interior but I see that and think there is 0% chance for that to be RHD.

Lets hope they've removed the old leaf springs the last one had and finally put some a modern system in!

Mind you the T.G Z06 test is IMPRESSIVE......7.0 ltrs of American grunt!

You may want to educate yourself on the composite leaf rear suspension. It's a trick piece of kit.

It looks to me like a few design cues have been borrowed, the front lights look similar to those on a Cadillax CTS and the rear lights from recent Camaro's.

On closer inspection it's actually manual. So auto may not be available after all.

Good looking car but for the model after this one, where do they go with styling? It looks as though you can't do any more to enhance the shape

You can see paddle shifters mounted behind the wheel. But the gearstick does look like a manual style one; maybe it's a generic shot of the interior layout?

Those paddles are there on the standard Vette for the rev matching on/off on the manual transmission. Though i've read the interior is photoshopped in regards to the shifter itself. I think we'll find out in a couple days

Don't see a 458 Fezza with all that crap hanging off it.
Than again its American styling.
