Revealing Spy Shots - less cammo than ever before

Sure looks like I was wrong about a hood vent. I'm glad, but wondering where all that air vents.





Midengines tend to have lots of heat exiting through the rear fascia. There are probably some sizable exit vents below the taillights and behind the mesh shown.


Rather than the early C3-type flying buttress, the cammo appears to be laying on a fastback hatch window like the one GM patented and shown on another thread. This looks just like the spoilers we've seen for while now, but for some reason, they decided to add small pool tube foam along all the edges (they did this on the front fascia too). I'm not crazy about the shape of the spoiler. You guys think it might rise and turn into a wing?


OK, that is one big front overhang. Notice the separate parking brake "caliper" on the back discs.


So is this just a jerry-rig camera to avoid problems because of the Cammo rear window, or do you think there will be one on the production C8 (maybe just BEHIND the rear glass in Production)?


More insite about the taillights


Sorry, no interior shots.

Corvette ownership is like owning your own fountain of youth ... and we get a sip from it each time the signal turns green.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Just a theoretical estimate by me Longtimer.
Not perfect.
Do 1/4 mile next.

This calculated estimate is not perfect.


But the MPH trap speed predicted is close.
124 mph trap speed is enough to Run 10.000 ET Flat in 1/4 mile Drag cars with 4.30-4.88 rear diff gears & engines redlined at 7,000 -8,000 rpms all Motor no power adder used.

Less camo, but still not a great looking car. Good, but not great.

I don't like it. I guess I'm used to the long flowing hood all these years.
