Prototype C7 & C7 Z06

This is what we need in the next generation:

Kind of even looks like an evolution of the Corvette styling.

Even has a Targa Top for all those whiners !!

In other words, a factory backed Mosler program

Why would I want a Corvette that looks like a Koenigsegg? I want a Vette that looks like a Vette.

If you like the look of the Koenigsegg, buy it.

Good to see the loyal Corvette owners/enthusiasts showing their true colors...

Form the back at least, this car looks a bit like the current Vette, I'm speaking of the tail lights, of course, the exhust system does not. I guess it could be a starting point. I haven't seen the front of the car.

Ahh,.....but it does...

It is very similar to the rear engined Corvette Indy Prototype.

Did anyone see the gumball rally video with the KKKKKoenigsegg?
Needed a repair crew to follow it the entire run.
Guess reliability is job none.

Well - considering the Koenigsegg is just a Euro car with a Ford V8...

I'd rather drive a Chevy than push a Ford... :P

And notice too they're using a centrifugal supercharger.
