      I agree, I really like it. It looks much better than in the leaked Carscoops interior photos. There is something interesting up there at the top of the wheel also.

        Interestingly, they do not allow a very good rendition of the details on the wheel. None of the inscriptions are very clear at all and unless you are already familiar with them, the new ones are impossible to figure out. And what is that approximately 1" - 1 1/2" dark hard area at 12:00????

          Here is our earlier thread on the C8’s interior, though all within this thread are not official pictures.

            is this the scoop shape?

            This same shape is in the headlamp, tail light, scoop, rear vents and side Q window...

            I did a drawing way back that showed this correlation...

                Thanks fvs, your confirmation of stitching color and an alcantera option.

                  Are we reading the tea leaves correctly that you would be creating for us a rendering with that scoop shape? (Or are we optimistically dreaming?). Might the tiny window behind the “B” pillar also echo that shape?

                    The shape of the spokes also look like the relief in the rear bumper intended for the license plate.

                      When I suggested that the key fob shape seemed to carry over from everything beginning with the hole in the shoulder area of the seats, I thought I was onto something. That was months ago! I later found out that virtually every seat that has a hole in the shoulder area, regardless of the manufacturer, seems to have a similar shaped hole. I've interpreted this as blowing my concept that the fob was tell tale of the rest of the car. Now, that I've admitted that, maybe it will be that shape. We'll know in just about 6 days.

                          Imagination run wild! But seriously, wouldn't a scoop be better suited to respond to aerodynamics versus aligning itself with a key fob?

                            Traditionally that is the centered-straight-ahead marker as used in race cars. Supposedly helps you get the wheel oriented properly if you're flailing around in an emergency situation.

                            Manufacturers have picked up on this as a styling trend and enhanced it in various ways. Perhaps, as John suggested in an earlier post, it might be color-matched to your interior color in the LT-3 trim. (or whatever it will be called)

                              Or it could change color is relation to your proximity to the redline.
