Love that - I'm no fan of the "crashed through Halfords" look and think that rendering is great. But where can I buy one?

As regards C7 generally, We'll have to agree to disagree! Just remember nobody like the C4 when it was launched - too angular. Nobody liked C5 when it was launched - too much F car and NSX. Nobody liked C6 when it was launched - too tamed. Etc, etc ,etc

A couple of points here:

"...with chrome bumpers back and front of course" What! I'm really tired of the chrome bumper "thing". I think Chevy did a masterful job of dealing with what was mandated and high time it was appreciated. Biased, me? Maybe, but look at the original concept....

Sorry, Steve, I think that silver C6/C3 mash-up is ghastly!

"Nobody" liked the C4 5 and 6? I liked the C4, still do. I loved the C6 from the first time it peeped out of the transporter at Le Mans in 2005 and still love it. C5....?

The C7 is growing on me, but there are still a lot of aspects that haven't, not least the interior, which, fit and finish aside, I still think is pretty grim and dated. And the whole "driver does everything" aspect is all to "macho" - in the age of heads-up displays so the driver doesn't need to take his eyes off the road, he still has to faff about with the radio etc 'cos the passenger is excluded from all of it. Too much US military influence I'm afraid!

That said, there was a very nice GS at our local dealership that I'd have happily taken away if we'd won the lottery and I had a spare 103k€ !
