      Seems credible, based on past photos, although not the most appealing angle to view the car (something about the proportions just seems "off")...

      I prefer the lines from this angle better:

        I think it is very, very close, maybe even just right. I also prefer the side view.

          Count me in also. I think it could be highly accurate.

          I also prefer the side view, though here is a rear end shot that our competitors will be seeing a lot.

                I think the 3/4 mule picture was taken with a telephoto lens which makes the car look flat and out of proportion. So the rendering looks the same plus the front widow tint isn’t the roof line. In real life it will look much better. Side view doesn’t look flat because there is no depth of field involved. Just my 2 cents.

                    Going to the Daytona 24 in January and I’m disappointed the C8R can’t make it. But I’ll just get my fix listening to the C7R idle in the garage area. Plus the smell of racing gas. Then out on the track to watch it earn poll position. Not to far away fellas. I read the TV coverage has improved for 2019. Michelin takes over the healm also for IMSA. Their tires are the best thing to happen to the Corvette and Shelby cars. I’m a car guy and go both ways.

                        Sorry about that. Hope you can get your room money back, or go and enjoy non-GM products.
