Its was seen on a commercial shoot in San Fran.
This "is" the new look of the Corvette...maybe i should stay on the Vette Forums with this.

I always thought the C5 would grow on me. Didn't happen. The C6 looks bad *ss though!
The doors and aero effects are VERY "Ferarri-like", and that's agood thing.
I always thought the side windows should be angled to the back of the car too.
Very nice.
I sure would like to see her without the "clothing" though.
Yep, I'm a typical male.

Very nice, I have a 2001 coupe now. Any idea what
the c6 will have for power options? Heard the stories
of '2006' snake skinner' model which would be 500+ hp, lets hope so. Mike

I have a C5 and like the looks of the C6 if that is what it really looks like. It has kept many of the concepts of the C5, just changed the character a bit.

The C-6 is smokin, but frankly, I am already eyeing the 2005 GTO. There will be no 2005 Corvette Z06, but the Cadiwack CTS-V is keeping the technology going on the Z06 engine in production. Motor Trend reports a rebirth of another "The Judge" like edition in 2005 of the GTO with the Z06 engine, or beyond.

I am already pricing. I think I will pass on a 2004 opening year model, and wait for the super car. Motor Trend was right, Pontiac has NEVER built a car like this before... (well Holden built it; that's why). However... the interior is rid of the tradtional plasticy look that GM has had to deal with in days past. Motor Trend's quote: "in the center of the dash, where you'd expect to find a member of the Delco family settled into its customary reserved seat, your eyes fall on the word 'Blaupunkt.' It's as startling as finding a Lowenbrau in your McDonald's Happy Meal."

I have always been a Pontiac fan, (less the Aztek), and with the way the Chevy SSR is shaping up, (POS), I am very glad GM is headed back in the right direction with performance; hence the 5.3 sec 0-60 GTO, (and the C-6).
