  • Does C8 Still Have Major Camo

    We all can see the zebra vinyl. For years when OEM tried to disguise an upcoming model, they use to when they were getting closer to the actual reveal, have no camo padding — just the single, thin, vinyl zebra covering.

    But as we internet sleuths got smarter, with better computer enhancement capabilities, the OEM’s realized we need more tricks. One of the best ones the last few years it to have a thick black outer camo at the beginning, then remove it with the vinyl camo underneath, but to additionally have more actual padding under the zebra vinyl.

    That and more techniques are in this fun video of how they disguised the current gen Camaro.



    Which leads to this thread’s question please? Do you think there remains any actual foam padding or similar material underneath the zebra vinyl, and if you do, where do think it is?

      I hope it's associated with the side air Inlet because something just doesn't look right about the current one.
      Save the wave.

        Two areas where it looks like sheet foam has been added under the camo are the side inlets and wing spoiler.

        I really like the front-view of the nose and grill area, and I hope that these are close to "factory".

          There's another image makes it clear that there's padding on the outside of the side scoop. And I think on top of the mirror. And probably quite a few other places.

            Actual Side cove is definitely hidden....

            would be nice if that melted rear spoiler is fake too...(not a fan of that rear spoiker)

            i think chazrons sletches are quite close.

              Padded spoiler. This is the one area of the car which IMO had the most amount of remaining padding. This spoiler is going to look at the reveal like it had a major tummy tuck.

                I agree 73shark the side scoop just doesn't look right. I think there is still a lot of padding on the side scoop, mirrors, rear end and the spoiler. I'm not sure about the front grille center section either, but I have a feeling we are going to really like the car once the camo comes off. I remember the C7 was bulky looking with its camo.

                  That rear bumper is a nightmare and totally disguised...the side scoop is also covered up and we cant see anything either.

                  when fully revealed the c8 shoukd be stunning.

                    All that camo and padding reminds me of a blind date I was set up on, back in my college days.

                    Wouldn't it be a hoot if, deep under all that camo, was an updated Fiero.

                      It will be a hoot when it is revealed, that it looks as good as, perhaps better than a McLaren and similar, e.g., the ultimate blind date of our lives.

                      That fantasy actor or actress we always wished we could have gone out with for just one date.

                        IMHO the hood leading edge is padded and the actual car will have a more downward sloped hood with a corresponding smaller center grill opening.

                        Also IMHO the side scoop is total misdirection. I think the real scoop will not stick out to the side and will be vertically slanted to the rear, not the front. As shown so far, it reminds me of the cooling scoops on a P38 Lightning fighter from WWII.

                        Agree with others about spoiler, mirror, and rear padding.

                          For sure it’s still hiding features. Mirrors, scoop, hood, etc... there is IMO a lot that’s going to be a pleasant surprise

                            Just joined the forum - been watching for a while. I agree, the more I look at this, the side scoop still has some major disguise. As an aside, I’ve never owned a corvette before - couldn’t afford one previously - but I think this will be my first.
