    just a plan view of the c8 based on best info. I included the presumed hood vents and rear fender intakes suggested by the CAD drawings.for the possible z06.
    Gives an idea of the overall layout.

        Thanks FVS - That looks Awesome- I extremely love that hood design. Hopefully there will be many check-boxes for options like that. I would definitely check that hood box if it could be offered on the Base or Z51 Model. HINT HINT.

          That hood does look good, as well as functional, but we've not seen any mules that have the dual-vent style. Of course, who knows what's tucked under the black vinyl Z06 camo...

          I also like that he's included the rear quarter panel vents (similar to the C7's) which seem very practical in that location for transmission and engine cooling.

          I wonder if these would be only a Z-51/Z06 feature on the C8?

            The hood vents were described by C7pimp as one large horse shoe shaped vent. Other eyewitnesses described it as two separate vents divided in the center similar to the Lotus Evora.

            The rear fender intakes can be seen in the leaked CAD drawing.

            Time will tell.

                      I hope the C8 Z51 will have the vents on the hood & on quarter panel that looks great I would extra for that.

                        You are very close (not surprising). For those who have missed the final version of what could be one of the initial C8 design sketches, something else fvs put together for us, here it is without part of the date impinging on it. Thanks FirstVetteSoon!
