    About 80% of time I mental image the C8, I am picturing the interior as I saw it sitting in the driver’s seat. The relationship of the steering wheel’s shape to the IP immediately behind it is perfect, e.g., totally frames it without an extra MM extra. The view out the front window it also so much improved (the C8 really needed a flat top steering wheel to not interfere with so much improved forward visibility).

    As some have also experienced and commented on, the extra armrest to armrest width, though a small amount, is nice, as is +1” height room and +1” seat travel.

    Z06 coming late this summer: Hypersonic Gray HTC, two tone blue interior, complete high wing/aero package. CCB’s, with every piece of visible carbon fiber available. Lifetime, annual contributors, and 24 year members of National Corvette Museum. Home is the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

      Just ran across this other picture showing the passenger having armrest access even better.

        I like that many who have sat in the GT2 seats comment about how comfortable it is. Road trips ahead.

          John is this a picture of a 2LT interior or a 3LT?

            Could well be a 2LT with the optional two tone Natural interior, for I just quickly built this after first selecting the 2LT trim.

Nor will we need to look over to the right to make the finite, while driving adjustments control, for I am sure that within a week they will all be instinctive, muscle memory. Also when I sat in the passenger seat, they did not create this “barrier” that shuts you out from the drivers.
              John, what material are the buttons made of? From pics they look like the cheap plastic of old. Hoping they aren’t.

                Thanks john. The second photo in your first (original) post sure made it look impossible for the passenger to use the center armrest, but the other two photos you posted later show it should indeed be possible. My bad. Thanks again!

                    07MontyRed, we are all learning a lot. Some days I am always unlearning something I thought was correct yesterday. This car is so new to us, and candidly for all the info GM has nicely already put out, there is more than that yet for them to share — for us to yet learn.

                      Interior review thanks to Atari_Prime.

                      ”The interior is stunning. People who were worried about the console bar in the middle impeding the passenger, shouldn’t be. It is only about an inch high at the cupholder area. Headroom inside the car could be a problem for some. I am 6’1” and about 270 lbs. I didn’t have any trouble fitting in the car but I do not believe that with the roof on I would have a lot of headroom. In between the passenger and driver there is a speaker that I hadn’t really noticed in many pictures. It is very cool looking. Also, the glass between the driver and the engine is kind of awesome. You can look back over your shoulder and see the engine while driving.”

                        Not sure if this one has been posted yet, but the same channel also did an infotainment/gauge cluster rundown with Alexis Reusch.

                            New IP screen display: We got a touch of the many driver’s IP display options we will be able to see. We know that there will be many customization and display options. While we wait for a full presentation, just found this one.
