I like it, quite a lot actually and I also suspect it will drive well. However I feel that new [expensive] cars are rarely cool. I used to think some Lambos were but have since changed my mind.
New Alfa's are because they are not centre and not a major expense.
Aston's are just so British so they get a cool status.

Anyway BOT, this is not either of the above so is in the uncool section.

Strangely, this cars ability renders it uncool. I suspect (and have read) that it is a very good car to drive and extremely capable. It even looks good, kinda like an Aldi F12 berlinetta. Not quite the real thing but the resemblence is there.

If it were a crap yank tank, as was expected in the past, i reckon it could have made cool, if not sub cool. But because its actually a good car, its just another supercar. And that is uncool

It's a sort of cut-price Ferrari. Ferraris mostly aren't cool so a low-rent one can't possibly be. I like it though and I bet it goes ok.

I can't for the life of me see what you could do with it, or where you would go in it, where you wouldn't just look totally ridiculous and a little bit sad.

Uncool.

I assumed the pictures were not doing the latest corvette any justice . Seeing it in the plastic at Geneva it turns out the photos are accurate.

I quite liked it when I first saw it in magazines but further viewings have changed my mind and it just looks clunky and try-hard now. You couldn't drive one outside of the US without looking like a complete p*nis either.

Uncool.

Uncool, it just has to be. Forget how it drives....or whether you like it (). It's a tart's handbag of extravagant over-design and hopeful attempts at plagiarism of real supercars which are incredibly uncool off their own backs.

A Corvette with a European feel to it. Just over the line towards cool.
