Is it wider ? The front fender definitely looks flared

Will this be a production model soon ?
Main body dimensions are the same as current Z06

one more question   ,Why two painters to do a little car? I'm painter for last 30 some years and did many exotics ( I can proof by pics with me) the reason I do ask is, each painter has different strokes and moves . that color is more less HUE or high in pearl pigments. all you need is one guy does bit different move then other color is off , on top of it,it goes to international Auto show.
 I would have my guy to cut and polish for a week . maybe I'm from the old school.
 btw car is gorgeous  exellent job+.
Thank you for the compliment Eddie.

Two painters is the way the General wants it. My partner did the control coat. We used PPG envirobase waterborne base coat, and standard urethane clear. The clear is flat sanded.

Hi Lambo Brothers. I wanted to show off my latest job at work. I swear to GOD I did the paint and body work on this 2017 Corvette Grand Sport! I get a cool one once in a while. I did the passenger side, my partner did the left side. The vette shipped to Geneva for an international auto show. If took a picture of it at work, I would get fired in a second.
