Today while pulling into work, a new Caddy 2 door drove past - Low slung and whisper quiet - Kinda neat looking - better in person for sure...

Is this any indication of the new Vette?? Or is it not a big deal??

FWIW, car was just putting past, not swift at all (at least then ;) )

Brilliant silver :)

Sounds cool!
I bet we won't see one until March or later. California is last in line to get anything!

We got to play with one at the Assembly Plant last month. At that time, they were working on the first 100 for the Meiman Marcus catalog.

FYI - I live in Southern California.

I was on my way to work this morning and I saw one of those closed auto transport rigs (the ones they use to deliver high end cars) and it had three side panel signs, one with a picture of the XLR, one with giant XLR letters, and one with the GM logo.

It was headed toward New Port Beach.

Could this be a delivery of the new car, I have yet to see one on the road in California.

I saw the XLR, Cien, and the CTS-V at the Anaheim Int auto show last Sunday.

I realized there that the door HANDLE cavity is much smaller and much higher on the XLR door, than on the C6. I guess the XLR membrane pad won't make it to the vette. If the C6 ends up with a "D" shaped pull out handle with that big gauge behind it, I'm gonna be disappointed.

The Cien is still sweet looking.

The CTS-V does have the rear license plate surround body colored and it definately improves the look - as does the FAT tires and the mesh grill. If it were only $10k cheaper, I'd jump at it for the family car!
