From what I have heard and seen, there is a fat chance in hell that the Z06 will have any hood other than what we saw in the real Z06 photo.

Um.... what was their reason?

That looks like a spy photo, not a GM photo.

What is the silver thing behind the grill. Is there any chance that isn't the radiator?

the hood is simular to the C5R hood and its purpose is to let the heat from the rad out from under the hood PLUS it also causes downforce on the front end. also if the air were to exit the rad under the car it would cause front end lift.

So, is it their photo? Or do they just want to keep the C6R under wraps?

I think GM sucks ass when it comes to this.If they don't want pics around,hide the damn car already..
Good thing they weren't incharge of Area 51.They have more leaks than a submarine with screen doors.
