Here's the Corvette C6 - Raptor design. It is a front bumper, rear bumper, side-skirt, and spoiler design for the Corvette C6. The rear bumper will receive a few changes, but the design is basically complete.

The rear spolier looks nice and clean. I am not sure I like the rear. What does the front look like?

If you are talking about the image below, you're not supposed to be able to open it. It's an icon representing the section you are looking at. If you take a look at the vehicles (www.GryphonAuto.com/vehicles (http://www.gryphonauto.com/vehicles)) page or individual pages for other vehicles, you'll probably understand what I'm doing. Although, I suppose it may not be a bad idea if I change that.

I still think the front would look cleaner with popup headlights, I'm really not sure about the new HL's, looks like they were thinking rice (GM that is) with the new trend on all those ricers being chrome plastic lights.

It just detracts from a clean front end, and looks a little european.

Just my .02 worth

Actually somebody at Gryphon likes the Ferrari Enzo, same design up front.Hmmmmmm

This is the last image untill I redo the rear bumper.

I think GM could have done better. Unfortunately, customizing that is someting that requires replacing every panel on the front end of the car.

Actually, I think the Enzo is ugly.

I don't like the C-6 style. But honestly, I would buy one now just
to put a kit like that. GM should have done that in the first place.
That is awesome. I see it already black on black :upthumbs :D

I'm just teasing you, but hopefully you'll like some of the other designs better.

GryphonAuto_Phantom: Hey long time no talk...wee...

I really liek the kit but I find one major draw back to your pictures. it is VERY hard to make out all the cool features of your work since the car is in a dark background. If its not too much trouble you should render a few of the cars with light sky blue type backgrounds. THat would really help make the car stand out.

Very nice work though. Your first Wing reminds me of a NSX, which is cool I guess.

The next environment I plan is an out-door environment...probably an airport.

My server has been acting really strange recently. Thanks for the error report. Probably what happened is last time I was updating the page the server didn't upload the entire file. I'll try to fix it, but it should work really soon.

the red vette with the reverse lights on the bottom and the mufflers out board like the C4, is the best design. just a thought but what about makeing the wing remote controlled by either throttle setting or speed?

I like some of these changes, too, especially the more aggressive front and rear. I have often said that GM needs to have someone outside the company design the Corvette, as the in-house designers are pretty medicore.

I would buy one just to save it from a body kit like that!

Honestly it looks more like a 93 RX7. Doesn't look bad but this pic made me do a double take

Thanks for the replies everyone.

Cool idea. A company could do something like that if they wanted to.
