Good catch! Where'd you find that?

Hard to say what that is. Could be a bunch of them going out for testing somewhere based on the covers.

The covers are going to be the new standard. You'll start seeing more and more of them.

Absolutely. I'm never taking mine off. Who needs "clear bra" paint film?

That's interesting, where did you get that info? No threads about that as far as I'm aware of. That would be nice if true and would be even better if we could keep them!!

Can I just order that cover from Chevy, so my Triumph Spitfire looks like a C7 while parked at the Dairy Queen? It would save me a ton of money.

It would be cool but those camo covers are huge money. It is quite the racket by whoever invented / produces them. They are however nicely configurable, adjustable and can be outfitted with padding in lots of places internally to dramatically change the look of the car. Not too mention their ability to stay on at very high speeds and maneuvers safely.

GM probably has a short line producing display vehicles. The cars probably don't have Vin numbers.

Who would have thought another Spitfire owner on the C7 forum. My first car when I was 16, still have it in the garage 25 years later

The C7 is going to look really good next to it. For some reason my GTR and M5 clashed with the Spitfire in the garage, but I have high hopes for the Vette
