  • FVS’ Latest Hood Rendering Plus More

    This hood-focused rendering was/is an interesting combination of fvs examination of this week’s 2nd GM teaser video and a request by “Pooty Thunder” to render a side scoop render which echoed the earlier key fob leak’s chrome trim piece.

    I also tried to include a hood that follows the video tease sketch...

    Focusing on the hood, I have heard in my head about 100 times, that year ago comment buy “c7pimp’ that “its hood is polarizing, and I really like it.”

    Two current C8 competitors’ hoods, also have valleys on each side that help to both create downforce and to then channel the air around the windshield but still have it attached to the sides of the cabin.

    Interesting to note that the McLaren 600 GT, and it was just released last month so it reflects their latest learnings, has that valley not just on the hood, but integrated into the seam of the hood and inner fender edges.

    Could this be extremely close to the C8’s hood? Nice work fvs!

    Nice job FVS. If I had a billion in spare change I would hire you, Chaz and John to design and build my cars.

        I don't know about that hood on the Ferrari 488 Spider. Sure looks like a place to lose the cat to me. What's down in that bucket. ??

            Forgot to mention THANK YOU FVS I have really have enjoyed your work. I really wish one of you design types would get away from the renderings and get creative in the rear end of this car. Inclusive of the door back. Most of us are confident of what the front end will look like but I do not see this jagged door scenario or even the rear. I think this is the real reveal on July 18th. GM is hiding a lot back there.

              No doubt we are in for some surprises!
              The renderings are only a taste.
              Prepare to be astounded!

                cvs, you left the viewer just enough wiggle room to add their own two cents and take a part in the interpretation. Thanks..

                  Always. We are only guessing.
                  I am guessing it will look “ something “ like this. The bones are good. How they refine the look and details will make it sing.

                  Looking forward to to seeing it in all its glory!

                    I still can't get over this feeling that GM has somehow managed to pull a fast one with the production C8 looking totally different from the camo'd cars we have been show.

                      Thx FVS ... always enjoy your renders. Agree that what we see on the 18th might be way different from the renders but it's a fun ride to see what you come up with.

                        That side scoop is interesting. I like it. I'd be surprised if it really sticks out that far, though. In the thread on the latest teaser, there's a shot of the car from virtually head on, and you can't see the side scoop at all. That tells me it's no wider than the front fenders.

                          Perhaps the car is perfectly centered, and that objects closer appear wider than objects farther away. However your essential point is spot on, the the scoop is probably not nearly as overpowering as we have been thinking.

                            I saw a ferrari pista last week at cars and coffee and that front hood shape incorporating a front wing was pretty awesome...

                            sure it cuts down on frunk space but who cares...

                            lit was as cool as hell to see the ground when looking down on the hood...

                            its formula one for the street.

                              Very cool that you saw one. I doubt I ever will. I saw a video where someone noted that whereas the 488 GTB has 8 cubic feet of frunk space, the Pista has only 6. Do not know how he measured that of course.
