It won't have those huge ducts in the rear quarter. Other then that, it looks someone accurate to what it might look like.

I made this a while back.

Nice Chris, though I suspect if ALMS lets the body width stock spoiler fly, they will make Corvette Racing lower the wing, even more.

The base already looked awesome. This is just

Anyone guess when the first C7s will hit showrooms? I can't wait to see it in person. Wish I lived closer to Detroit for the NAIAS show.

The current C6.R (based of the ZR1) has the full width spoiler.

From my understanding they were already using the aluminum frame rails when they went to the GT2 (now just GT) class.

I suspect the hood will look closer to production now. And they might get away with a smaller rear wing, since the c7 supposedly is more aero optimized.
