The side profile looks sharp too.

The front is interesting. Though not my favorite. Also it's my understanding that europe has new pedestrian safety laws that forbid pop-up headlights. Reasoning that people struck with some of these head lights popped up suffer greater injury than what would of been if they had just fallen on the front/hood with lights down.

Some have taken the no pop-up headlights to mean no hide-away lights at all. However I've neither heard nor read anything anywhere that states one cant have hidden headlights when not in operation.

Would seem to reason the new camaro as was as corvette could have the headlights hidded, just as long as they were not pop up headlights.

I like it from every angle including the front and I also prefer it with pop-up headlights. The current headlights are somewhat ugly because they do not follow the car lines correctly (in my opinion always). Also they are too rounded if someone can say that.

:agree: Maybe make the headlights of the C7 like the early 90's Jaguar XJ220 hideaway lights.

You can see the hideaway headlights of the Jaguar XJ220 in operation 5:35 min into this video:

These hideaway headlights are really amazing and great looking. I wonder if they are too expensive for GM to make them for the C7.

That one actually looks like a Corvette, not that other bull that's been posted here.

I like parts of it. Still screams C6 though. I hope the C7 is a brand new model sharing nothing with the C6.

It looks a lot like a C6 since it's based of some Z06 C6 photo. It looks like what the C6 should have looked like (IMOA).. save for the front which is a bit iffy.

Appears the artist took styling queues from the C3 and morphed them into the Z06 C6 (Z06 due to the wide body flares). It looks awesome.

Hopefully the more aggressive tones of the new camaro bleed over to the C7.

How far can the styling for the C7 go, still look like a "corvette", not look too much like something else, and still look stunning?
