Automotif L...

I have to say that the new 'Vette makes a badass droptop. It absolutely looks like something a superhero would drive in a Marvel summer action blockbuster.

(I think that, after the C2, the C4s were the best-looking Vettes, at least early on. They were nice and understated and tended to look worse when all fruited up with aftermarket ground effects or Greenwood or Callaway bodywork. Later ones got a little busier-looking with the ZR-1 inspired convex butt and weird side gills. Then came the C5 and C6, which seemed torn between trying to stay subtle and trying to look like a supercar. The new one has finally thrown subtle to the winds and embraced its inner flamboyant supercarness. If you're gonna be a bear, be a grizzly.)
