    No idea.. found it on a french site that had a whole collection of pictures. If I had a 550/575 this is exactly what I'd do to it-- but maybe a flat blue instead of black. ;)

    The first time I saw that car I thought it would look even better (if that's possible) with teeth mounted into the grille.

    That would scare the **** out of anyone!

    I'd hope that there is at least a Stinger missile option.

    I checked out what it would be like in the Vette with the latest generation NVG's and it doesn't look particularly good. The first thing is that even with the dash lights turned all the way down there is still a large amount infrared coming out of the dash and you would have to mask it off to avoid light blooms on the goggles. Even if you could look at the dash the goggles aren't focused for up close and you couldn't read any of the instrumentation. My car has the head up display which doesn't show up at all.... good NVG's filter out higher frequency green/blue light and the hud is apparently in that range. The goggles only have a 40 degree field of view (regular human vision is slight more than 180) so you really can't see anything other than straight ahead. I dunno just how it might affect being out and about driving but I can tell you that flying with NVGs requires an extra measure of caution is required because it really screws with perception. Street lights cause massive light blooms and the goggles automatically adjust the gain to compensate so you really can't see a whole lot when there are bright lights around.

    So to sum it up.... driving with NVGs you have no view of any instruments, you could shift from the sound of the engine but you would have no indication of just how fast you might be going and any perception of speed would be significantly altered due to the reduced field of view and if you came upon another car or a street light you would be driving almost blind.
