    I'd suggest a very dark tint on the windows. :)

    That first car behind the blue one looks like Ceramic Matrix Grey Metallic and not white. Could be the lighting.

    In white and without the wing it looks nice. Except straight from the rear. Might get used to it. Also, having a big wing might work but definitely not the small one. I do struggle to see anything that really says Corvette though. The interior is a continuation of the C4 and C7 designs but the exterior so far has had me think of the F430 (front end), Honda (rear, not sure why because I can't find any Honda that resemble it) and Fiero (taillights, side windows) :confused: If Pontiac had been around and someone had showed me a picture of the C8 and said it's the new Pontiac Fiero, I would definitely have believed them.

    I think this is what I will do. I think it will look even better as a convertible and the lighter interior shouldn't bake me.

    3LT natural dipped interior with Shadow Gray Metallic paint. No Z51. No colored calipers. No CF interior. Standard silver wheels. About the only option I may want is the performance exhaust and the lift but I'm not sure about them either.

    Very cool.

    I wonder what happens to something like this after the marketing campaign's finished?

    It is Ceramic Grey Metallic. The color is VERY changeable due to light. It looks white, it looks baby blue, etc...

    Nice color.

    But maybe the darker colors blend all those creases and hard edges a little better.

    Hard to say, I have to see it in the flesh.

    Saw the C8 in person yesterday. Its quite nice. I can nitpick certain parts like the side intake, which I still dont like and there are some protruding winglets on the front that really annoy me in person, but its a good looking car. It has 80% of the presence of a ferrari or a mcclaren but it does not have anywhere near the presence of a lambo.

    In all seriousness, for anyone that dreams of a Ferrari but cant swing $150k+ and/or doesnt want to deal with out of warranty (very expensive) maintenance issues, this is really the car for you.

    The same was said of the original NSX. I think the original NSX has held up well in history.

    Its an interesting comparison as you would think Honda would have the resources to have made the new NSX similar to this C8 in terms of performance and price point. But they went the wrong direction.

    Exactly

    Honda should have made a lightweight Turbo V6 with like 500 HP and a manual box option at under $90K. I think they have to look at the C-8's sales numbers and say to themselves: "Gee, we missed that one"

    On the flip side, I bet when Chevy saw 4 years ago what Honda was doing here they were overjoyed. The one thing they must have feared is another mid engine car coming out from a major manufacturer before them at about the same price.

    I think Honda Management got greedy resting on the laurels of the Gen 1 NSX and the S2000 which gave good performance at a reasonable price.
