It was just unveiled - What do you guys think?

It has the same basic profile since the C4, but it has a more sinister look to it. To me its not necessarily beautiful, maybe a little harsh and wild but I mean that in a good way. Overall I like its edgyness look.

As promised, the interior was given a much needed update in quality and design.

If I have to criticize something aesthetic, it will undoubtedly be its rear end: The taillights are not round but rather angular. They are more Camaro inspired, and I actually expected this because the new Impala and Malibu received the same treatment.

The technology is interesting. The new small block features direct injection, VVT, and cylinder deactivation called "Active Fuel Management". Don't worry, its still torque: at 2,000 rpm its pulling 400 lb-ft!! All new seven-speed manual that incorporates rev-matching both on the downshifts and upshsifts. Its also defeatable via a steering-wheel paddle.

I really want, but I'm a looser Sad

I like it, but it's not really... graceful... at all. Pretty wild, kinda cheap ferrari-ish but with essence of white man design in it.

The interior looks awesome, the exterior, a little too boy racer. At least most of those vents are functional. I'll be interested to see how it performs.

It is absolutely incredible. It almost has a concept car look in comparison to the Corvettes of the past.
