So the newest Corvette was unveiled by GM and I have to say, I'm actually liking what I see so far. In the past, I've had to dismiss the Vette due to the absolute GARBAGE interior. I have, however, envied the performance figures...
What are your reactions to the new styling? Did they nail the interior, finally?
From the outside, I see it kinda like the newer Viper mated with the Aston Martin?!?

I am really impressed with this. Being a C6 Z06 owner, I know the flaws of the corvette very well. While I will never get rid of my C6 Z06 because I have $160,000 wrapped up into it ~ I will find myself in a C7 ZR1 when it comes out. Definitely a homerun by GM.

I always thought bang for the buck vettes are a great deal, if you compare it to a comparable performing true blood sports car they are a good deal. Interiors have gotten better with GM products and the styling of this new vette is a great improvement over previous versions, if I was in the market it would be a serious consideration.
