Not going to lie, i'm not a huge fan of your design thus far... it looks cool but I'd rather some more Corvette look in there, however your artwork is superb! Good Job

So far, so good. Perhaps widen it, but stay closer to the base model - like the relationship between the C6 base and Z06?



What are you modeling this in?

I've mentioned in some other posts that I await what will happen with the C7 replacement for the Z06 / ZR! / Gran Sport body style. To me, the C6 Z06, etc. body style is MUCH more attractive/aggressive looking than the "standard" C6, especially in the front end grille opening and wheel opening (flare) areas.

Looks nice, but doesn't quite look like a C7 anymore. Too much changed?

While i thought your C6 kits were awesome...not a fan of this one.

The C7 is outrageous enough. And...seems to me it's already a wide body. I think many will regard a full body kit as moot. I think a rear fascia might sell like hot cakes.

One thing to consider...GM has put so much energy into aerodynamics, anything we add kit-wise may reduce performance. Not saying that some would gladly make that sacrifice for a nice ass.

I think it looks great. I wouldn't be too concerned if my top speed dropped from 175mph to 160 or if my MPG decreased slightly. I would like it in red though.
