C8 Section Re-Organization, With Our New “Mid Engine Exterior/Interior Pictures, Videos and Renderings” Section

MECF members asked for our segregating pictures, renderings and videos into one area; looking ahead, that section will become our most viewed area once you get your C8’s. Pre-existing threads that fit are now being moved. Thank you for the suggestion!

    Coupe. Lip spoiler. Still plenty of camo. Came in really close. Odd camo over the passenger window. Leader in the "dopiest audio" contest.Click image for larger version  Name:	Screenshot 2019-01-22 at 7.41.28 AM - Edited.png Views:	1 Size:	463.5 KB ID:	23968

      Great to see something new! Always interesting to see different details (albeit camouflaged) in these “captures”.

      Too bad these “happen chancers” didn’t capture s but more... but glad they captured what they did!

        So many questions about the ME right now, but the answers are nicely, though slowly, coming out.

            Headlights might be a bit closer to what we'll really see. The lower fascia/bumper cover looks especially "stuck on" to mask the real front contours. I suspect that hole was caused by something that punctured the camo cover. Conjecture on my part of course.

            glad to see them running around ... not holding my breath for a reveal anytime soon ... thx for finding and posting this Wow Factor

              Let’s please focus on the singular upper headlight strip. What was whispered a little while ago from a little birdie. Now visible, and BTW consistent with what we saw a month earlier on the ITW capture “north of Detroit.”

              I really like that single, straight LED headlight strip. Fits the shape of the car IMO, exciting without being the mess of squiggles LED’s than more than some vehicles now have.

              Am I forgiven if I describe it as a combo as “simple, yet exciting and elegant.”

                Ok, you can get by with elegant again. I agree.

                  Thanks Plasboy. I use it less than I think is appropriate just because.

                      Thanks Bikerjulio, for calling our attention to the revised deck spoiler. I am so much happier with that one than we have typically seen — though sure I am far from alone in loving its simple shape compared to the wing one.

                      Again, maybe the lip spoiler is for the entry version, the wing for the Z-51 version?

                        Those worried about the side scoop being like dumbo’s ears, well not so much.

                          I like what we are seeing today! I like the headlights and the spoiler. I also think we are seeing the entry version.

                            Should use all you want. What’s that line, **** the torpedoes, full speed ahead.

                              I’m with you 100% John! I like the “attitude” it gives the front view... even in camo!
