    That’s very nice. No rear spoiler or is it an active spoiler that only comes up with speed?

      We have been asked when standing next to our C7 Z06, “is that a Ferrari?”. Our C8 will be “is that a McLaren 600?”

      They look a lot a like to this point in time, but gee, which one is less than 1/3 the cost. And since we do extensive road trips, the C8 will be one that is that usage capable.

      Thanks JB.

          That is very close to what the C8 will look like. The McLaren GT and the C8 will look like someone copied the other.

            The people who mistake Corvettes for Ferraris don't know much about cars apart from "it looks expensive and exotic.". They would probably also call a McLaren 600 a Ferrari if they saw one and you'll probably hear the same thing with the C8 haha.

              Similar overall but I have a feeling the C8 will be a bit more striking or dramatic. Sharper.
              Fingers crossed!

                For sure fvs! Starting with its hood being much more dramatic — which personally I like, though I have two friends who are getting a C8 who both wish its hood “had no creases.”

                I love the sharp edges on our C7, e.g., a mean looking machine. I believe the C8 will be more of the same in a good way, though clearly as we all know, the Z06+ versions of the ME would be even more race car looking.

                  Truly amazing what a small company like Mclaren has been able to accomplishes in such a short period of time with their production vehicles. Competition makes the other brands better.

                    From afar the stance looks very similar.. but i have to say the C8 looks way more aggressive and "sinister" if that makes sense. The McLaren seems more docile looking like NSX.

                      We were forewarned about the C8 having a wonderful aggressive stance by c7pimp about a year ago, when he compared it to first Aston Martin ME concept rendering, saying the C8’s stance echoed it. Thanks to TopSpeed and classicdriver.com we have pictures of that early 200’s ME Aston Martin concept. It was called the HBH Bulldog.

                        This McLaren GT and the C8 probably have similar rear and front storage . That likely cause the gross designs to be alike on the back and front and over all proportions to look alike/. If the higher lever C8 have the same storage then they will overall not look different from the base car; not fundamentally different

                        The sleeker ME's tend to no have storage, no glove compartments, no cup holders and no pockets. So if the higher C8 are super sleek, then the driver will have to crawl into it, travel nude and sip air.

                        The back must be higher and broader if there is meaningful storage back there. And the front a little more overhang and bosom than usual for an ME car, if the front storage is maxed out.

                          I can confirm that the C8’s cabin, unlike many competitors small spaces, will be very nice to spend time in (space wise).

                            I've always enjoyed GT cars. I miss my '93 3000GT VR-4.
