The R8 lights look hot ... on an R8; just saying.

How about having something hot on the Corvette that doesn't come from another car?

I think that has been the argument the whole time. Why toss 50 yrs of heritage out the window in favor of a design basically copied from another car?

Nailed it.

There is no amount of fancy effects they execute on the Camaro taillights that they couldn't have done with Round Corvette taillights.

Alright, alright... we can call them cylindrical then. I can just imagine the results of that image in the magazines.
"It's confirmed, C7 to have brake light bouquet!"
