I'll admit that it isn't my cup of tea...I'm sure my GT1 vette isn't to everyone's liking either. Will it sell? I'm sure it will. Will it be like the '86 Corvette where EVERY convertible was a pace car? Probably. If you like it for what it is then please buy it. It is an attractive car, but won't be something to buy to collect. As others have said, it will sell and there will probably be quite a few produced.
I'm glad that GM has finally figured out about low-volume special editions of their cars and is starting to turn them out in a more expedient manner. There have been corvettes, firebirds, and camaros over the years that have been limited, but I hope they will transfer this over to other vehicles...GM needs every car they can sell right now.
