C7 uncovered in GT5 (I think)

It's a distorted pic, but it's still the fully exposed car.


Trying to upload the pick but failing. Here's a link as well.

Note that this must be the base model. No brake vent low in front of the rear wheel well, yet still has the hood vent, but I don't see the top rear fender vent (good).

As you say, it's distorted, and it's a vid game, but it shows a fairly pronounced flair of the rear fender for the tires.

Thanks for posting the pic LT, not sure what I was doing wrong today. I've posted pics with ease on this site before.

Anyway, I'm in full agreement with you that this is indeed the base model. Definitely flared at the rear.

Wow, that looks great!

Really looking forward to this car. Maybe I'll lease one for a couple of years, until the GS, ZO6, or ZR1 comes out.

This image DOES include the rear spoiler though, which I believe was stated the base model will not have.

Nice catch, but I do believe it shows the vents on top of the rear quarter panel. I think it's just behind the rear view mirror in this view. I opened up the large image file in photoshop, and there definitely is a hint of an opening in the rear quarter just to the left of the mirror.....FWIW....

That area looked fuzzy to me. I wasn't sure it the vent was there or just motion distorion.

Again, this is a game vette, so we shouldn't expect this to be perfect. They might have started with the Z?? rendering and worked backwards for the Stingray ... leaving the full width spoiler on. Or, the full spoiler might be an option.

Again, Game rendering.

Noted, but the GT series is notorious for their attention to detail. They duplicate everything for the car modelling perfectly and precisely. Not artistic license allowed.

I was confused when I noticed the rear spoiler but no rear brake cooling duct ahead of the rear wheel-well like in the Jalopnik rendering. Then again, this may not have even come from Grand Turismo. But I'm pretty sure it did.

This is IN FACT not from GT5 but from a comic book artist named Jon Sibal who also illustrates cars based off of readily available information. I've pointed this out in another thread with this same image. Jon nailed the ZL1 before it was released so he's pretty accurate.

He's the exact same image on his deviantart page: http://my.deviantart.com/messages/#/d5q1s4l


To clarify: NOT from a video game; 100% render by an artist named Jon Sibal.

Damn!

Thanks for clearing that up Gorram. Wow I feel dumb now...lol. That looks like part of a street circuit in GT. And Sibal's work looks so much like Polyphany's I was sure it was their work.

Don't. I remember this image from the C/D as well as the front and rear images he did for them in the same issue using the same background he always uses. His work is accurate but distinctive.

(Also, I'm taking his renderings as more proof that the C7 will have camaro-esque tail-lights.)
