C8 Section Re-Organization, With Our New “Mid Engine Exterior/Interior Pictures, Videos and Renderings” Section

MECF members asked for our segregating pictures, renderings and videos into one area; looking ahead, that section will become our most viewed area once you get your C8’s. Pre-existing threads that fit are now being moved. Thank you for the suggestion!

    Introductory post for fvs’ HT convertible renderings, which are found in the post immediately below.

    This closely resembles what the HT convertible will likely look like.

    So many questions about the ME right now, but the answers are nicely, though slowly, coming out.

      I absolutely love this particular picture, so much so that it could well become our first convertible in 50 years. Thank you fvs!

          Hope there are serious roll hoops under that bodywork, so it's track ready.

            Surly they're going to incorporate the roll over protection pop-up bars like Lambo, Ferrari and Porsche did. After all these years of waiting for this car and seeing design elements from all three of the major exotics, I'm sure GM prepared the car for track safety. We know that GM was testing the ME along side a Porsche so I'm betting they incorporated similar roll over protection.

                  Wonderful.

                  I'm changing wallpaper on a daily basis

                  Would be really nice to see in velocity yellow.

                      The driver's drifting quite a bit in that turn - I hope he can maintain his line.

                      Oh, and of course the convertible looks awesome.

                      With the hard top in the "up" position, wouldn't all tracks consider the C8 convertible good to go?

                            Depends on the track. Some require bolt in roll bar some require lock in plates for the HT. Some require at least active pop up roll bars. My local track allows my Mercedes SLK 55 AMG with the active roll bars. You must inquire at your specific track.

                              Do the buttresses not act as rollbar ? If reinforced ,,, why not?
