  • Super cool C8 Redesign video

    Just found this video of a guy photoshopping a new front end and air intake on the C8. A really fascinating video.

    While I admire his verbalization in a video ...i disagree with his analysis and reasoning.

    i like to thank him for his time spent...

    one very valid state,ent he made was he needs to see the c8 in Person in 3 dimensions.

      I wasn’t crazy about his actual design. However, I found his photoshop skills to be fascinating.

        I do like the lower nose and hoodline. But everything is connected together from engineering and regulatory factors he doesn't have to worry about. Maybe the headlights are where they are because of legal height requirements? And bumper height requirements? Is the hood taller at the rear to allow room for the battery and other things that need to go there, and to maximize luggage capacity? Does lowering the front fascia mean it's going to whack speed bumps all the time?

        But I sure wish I could do that in photoshop. My skills don't even reach novice level compared to that.

          Regarding my comment above about real world requirements vs. Photoshop design. See the Automobile article on the C8 design:

          “We’ve got this all-new LED headlamp shape,” he says. “It’s horizontal, no longer a round projector, with a semi-circle face to it. We’re basically taking that headlamp, pushing it against the tire and down on top of the radiator, while pushing it in that corner. Getting that lamp function really enabled that sleek pattern.”
          https://www.automobilemag.com/news/2...79D52E9368C059

          So pushing the front end and headlights lower, as done in this render, isn't practical. The radiators and tires would get in the way. You'd have to make the nose longer, too, to get empty room in front of the tires and radiators to drop the headlights into. Real world design involves the interplay of hundreds, or maybe thousands, of factors, which "Photoshop engineers" don't have to worry about.

            Fascinating... with all due respect, I’m not a fan of his tweaks (“redesign”).

              Besides the engineering restraints of the redesign, I love it. Definitely looks more aggressive 🔥🔥🔥

                Those lines on the hood that he is deleting have a purpose. They channel and direct air around the greenhouse. So he's basically wrecking the aerodynamics of the car.
