Great find "AllFlash!" Finally, more than a rendering, a real DSOM II Z06. Hope it is exactly what orange lovers have wanted it to be.

It is a rare orange that is darker than red, e.g., darker than Torch Red!

Thanks elegant. Mine is on order either way but these piks answer some key questions for me concerning the final hood look and how the flash stinger might fit, spoiler, clear tail lights, as well as what the final black might look like on the back end. I wasn't sure ifthey would have a flat or gloss as we see here. The headlights almost appear to be smoked somewhat as well.

Looks great. As to the individual in blue shoes- most interesting since he has a backpack and camera in hand- both absolute no nos on the factory tour.

Nice color!

Hmmm... is it missing the front splitter? Although IIRC it's installed during PDI. And no carbon flash badging? I thought it was standard on the Z06.

Carbon flash badging is standard on the Z06, but there is an option for chrome badging instead.

Also... I have read on other Forums that the front splitter is not installed until it arrives at the dealership as is necessary for loading/unloading onto transport and train.

Who is this guy by my car?? View attachment 12857

As to the question as to "who is this person" and the other question/comment, "I though no cameras were allowed in the Plant," the person in the picture is "Jason Fenske. He has a youtube channel called "Engineering Explained," does a lot of car reviews. Probably GM allowed him to shoot pics as a member of the media."

Thank you "pewter99" for answering those two questions for us all.

Well I have to say that my wife picked a great color sight unseen. Can't wait to get it into our garage!

Hey SwisStingray:

Go for it! Go for the Orange. In the sun it should look pretty close to your photoshop version. You'd have the first of only a few DSOM Stingrays running around Europe.

Laissez les bon temps roulez!

Hey VETTED53 !

You mean this look ? ;) (I have slightly modified the color to match at the best what could be the DSOM in the daylight...)

C7 Sunset orangeb.jpg

I have to say that this color is taking more place in my mind but more things have to be considered...
1/ it's the opposite of the Shark Gray
2/ It's all but discret
3/ I don't know what I could choose for the interior color (I was on the Kalahari)
... and other little things :cool:

Yep, that's what I'm talking about. I think that last photoshop is what DSOM II will really look like in the sun. Good luck with your decision!

Is that a stage 1 or 2 in the first pics
Post #1 shows a Stage 2 which was not completely finished being built. You can tell it will be a Stage 2 from the height of the spoiler.
