Not sure why they chose McLaren Orange as the halo color for it. Should have been red. Or Yellow.

I've never understood the fixation some have about tail lights. It must be an American cultural thing. I can recall as a kid sitting in the backseat of my parents' car and hearing comments about ugly tail lights on cars in the 60s.

What exactly is the problem with tail lights on modern vettes? What would people prefer instead of what's being provided?

It's not a big deal to me, but others would like the traditional 4 round tail lights.

Hate the color. Still waiting on a neon green or some crazy purple color. They need to quit offering old people colors and offer some bright colors to attract young buyers to the corvette family and away from the Nissan/Honda/Subaru styles

I hear you. That thing would look awful in Warbonnet Yellow, Roman Red or Bridgehampton Blue! Not to mention Code 11 white with a red gut.... that would truly be horrific!

Something that respects the heritage of the brand. Corvettes have had two round taillights for almost 60 years. Camaro's have rectangular taillights. Combine the taillights with all that back plastic cladding and you have... well, something not as attractive as it could have been.

That ZR1 looks like the Great Pumpkin.

Me neither. Too much plasticy stuff all over the car. I think the C6 might be my favorite of the modern Vettes.

They should have kept the dual sealed-beam headlights too.

Agreed, I still think the C6 is the best looking Corvette since the 63-67 body style.

I'm not a fan of the different color vents on the hood & fenders. Reminds me of the ricer look. They only look good on black cars & that's because they match the paint. Wouldn't buy one even if I had lotto money.
