I guess just like Evos and STi's, all the money is spend on the chassis and drivetrain, with only peanuts spent on the interior. To have the interior match the exterior, the vette would need to cost 100+k.

I almost brought a C6, love the exterior styling but did not like the interior at all. Since you spend 90% of your time there, it is very important. I might give this a chance, pictures always looks nice but the real wold is sometimes different.

Front looks great, front 3/4 looks like the 599 which is very aggressive, but the rear looks like a terrible Camaro ripoff imo.

Also can't believe that the interior still looks cheap, even in press photos.

What does that rear vent lead to?

I like it better than the viper. To me the viper resembles a clown shoe. Two round body segments and a tall bubble as a cabin with a short windshield at an angle you'd find on a truck.

Apparently rear dif, transaxle, something else, and has a useful aerodynamic purpose as well. All vents on the car are functional according to GM.

Comparing this interior to the previous C6 it is a huge step up however I do think there are area's of improvement as well. That said we'll see how it looks and feels once released.

Wat r u talking about

isn't this a BMW owners wet dream, a drivers oriented cockpit

and how are you judging "areas of improvement" based off a 3D render...

I think the interior looks pretty good

Definitely an improvement over the C6, which was a definite improvement over the C5.

I want to know how the HUD looks this time around. You can see a pretty big cut out for it on top of the dash.
