    Mid-engine C8 chop






    Self-explanatory. Outside of some flourishing around the rear vent, I'm pretty confident about this one so far.

    Can you give it more aggressive front air intakes in the front bumper?

    As in more of a lip? Like more 458 (like we discussed in another spy shot thread a while ago)?





    Straight off it if so.

    Great chops. Very professional.
    Would you consider adding a couple of vertical smoke stacks for the coal burners in the audience?

    I'm pretty confident about this one.

    The front is overall more steeply raked than it was, and the front overhang is much shorter than the original.

    Just getting a Alfa 4C vibe. I need it to be better than that.

    Keep in mind the transition from the rear quarter panel to the door isn't going to be flat. There are large intakes there.

    Me suspect the body work is not there yet, this is a Chassis mule... Ferrari and Corvette Styling has always been close.. sort of.. I think they feed off each other...

    I mentioned that in the OP. I lack the skill or a good source to imitate what I think it'll look like.

    Chances are, the ZR1 will eclipse it in performance and the Mid Engined one will lay down the law.
