The Caprice is anything but sexy. The long wheel base, lifted suspension for the added weight of equipment and the cage makes it look like a long car canoe.

I like the look of them in full police stickers/gear. Good looking cop car. The detective versions are just "meh" to me.

The car looks awesome and I can't wait to see what the SS will look like....I just hope they don't use the same antenna like the VF, that thing is just wayyyy out of place.

Re: Commodore VF reveal

I like the sport version a bit better. Wish they had taken a good pic of the sport version headlights... So far they are a big turnoff. I hope they are a little revised.

I think it looks great. I love the interior with the flat bottom steering wheel. I hope chevy just puts their badge on it and leaves it alone. I would imagine they will change the wheels and maybe a different front grill. I hope they wont do that.

I love the entire front. I don't know why you guys dislike the headlights.

It's just right. I really like it. The more I look at it, the more I want one. I think I might be the first to sign up for the preorder list at work. If this sucker weighs in at about the speculated 3600lbs, it will be a winner of a car.

It is going to be close to the weight of the g8 at around 3900 to 4000.

Yup, they said they lost 40kgs by going to an aluminum hood along with other various parts....but I'm sure they gained some weight with all the extra gizmos the car has.

Looks like it'll only be in an automatic like they did to us on the g8 GT.
