    Thank’s for the video John,

    I know I’m probably the only one, but I still believe the side scoops on the production car will be “innies” not “outies.”

          Nope, it is a salt based compound and doesn’t melt in the rain. It cakes up into a 3000+ pound mass that crushes the competition.
          There is a madness to my method!

            For the first time, we see the windshield wipers in their fully extended, vertical position.

              We just wrote about this video over at CorvetteBlogger. One thing we noted is the lack of the wing-spoiler:

              In the second video, you can see this prototype doesn’t have the wing-spoiler and instead, the rear deck from the engine compartment back is very clean looking. I grabbed this screenshot to make sure you get a good look at it. The wing-spoiler has been somewhat controversial in its design and many future buyers have said they may go without. GM does appear to be trying out different designs of the wing-spoiler which has been spotted on the C8s in different widths and configurations.

                Kudos CorvetteBlogger for capturing that screen print, and kudos to Corvette to seemingly giving us a non winged-spoiler option.

                  In those video's (thank you for sharing BTW) it looks like the front of the camouflage car is exaggerated with a visible bump along the nose. Wonder what the final shape will be? Getting excited to see the final product!

                    That fish lip still bothers me.
                    That air intake makes the car look very sexy.

                      The fish lip is camo, e.g., pushed back and away due to air pressure, and the hood underneath has no upper fish lip.

                        Best way to watch these two videos are to put them in slowest speed. You get to appreciate how beautiful she is.

                            Thanks Z_Rocks. I love learning and while I could be the last person to be aware of this on our forum, your above post got me to just learning about selecting slower video play back speed. Sure will make it easier to get the best screen print from now on.

                            The car does look great in slo mo.

                              Also looks like LED is not only on top of headlight but also down the side at least part way
