Wow! I knew it would look badass in Red Hot. Thanks for the pics.

Edit: I notice how they're using the bowties with the holes in them. Maybe they will make production.

Great catch Justin!

This is a real vote of confidence by Chevy to use Barber. It's a very technical track. I've driven many laps there and love it for the challenge.

Looks like we will have a deluge of magazine articles and online write-up's right before deliveries of the '14's.

Awesome stuff.

Surprised by the lack of aero under the car given its purpose and the relative ease of doing so.

I agree with you, but perhaps truly effective undercarriage aerodynamics are a more complicated science than simply sealing the bottom of the car.

There is aero underneath. I am sure it was just removed to show the suspension

Let's hope they didn't forget the belly pan, there was almost a riot when some of the vert zl1 owners found out they didn't have a belly pan.

1. We can now clearly see the wickerbill is two position, not sliding.
2. The front bowties are all hollow outlines. Looks like this design cue will make to to production.

Must admit, I definitely like the angle of this shot and the profile it creates for the car.

I think this is the same setup we have on the ZL1 in the DIC menu, but I could be mistaken on that fact.

The Z/28 looks stunning in red. I can't wait to see the reviews on the Z/28 in the near future.
