Bkuper's MT centerfold combo with ScottH's C5 comparison from the CF.

Perspective lines added by GX624.

Noteworthy:
Mirrors are different.
Windshield angles are different.
Targa lengths are different.

1/2/04 New, refined comparison. Aligned along rear wheel center lines.

That comparison certainly makes the C6 look more aggressive, doesn't it?

Yes it does. I like how they moved the rear wheels back (Would that be for a better weight balance ratio?).

From this angle the raised front fenders make the car look much more uniform -- the butt's no longer too heavy looking and the front is no longer wedge-like. Also, the side bulges really add muscle.

Dog metaphor: C6=Pit Bull, C5=Doberman

Damn. Look how much bigger the rims are!
It appears to me that the C6 height is scaled larger than the C5 in the pic. That may be why the wheels appear larger and the windshield looks to be at a different angle.

Indeed. The C6 is 1.4" taller than the C5. The scale in my comparison may be juuuuuuuuuuuuuust a tad off, but it's awfully close.

Happy Christmas!

It looks nice, but I'm still not over the loss of the pop up headlights. It'll probably grow on me though.

Are the C6 headlights protected by a cover or will the whole expensive thing have to be replaced when a rock finds home?
