When Motor Trend saw the Chevy SS for the first time, here's what they had to say about how it looks...

“almost has a Mercedes C63 AMG look to it” - Motor Trend


Looking at the pictures we have of the Chevrolet SS on this forum and comparing that to the C63 AMG, I don't see how it "almost" has a Mercedes C63 AMG look to it.

Seems like the guys at Motor Trend had nothing else better to say.

yeah i don't see it either, don't know what motor trend was thinking. looking at the pic's of the c63 amg and ss below, there's nothing much they have in common when it comes to design. i wouldn't even want to say the SS is like the C63 in any way.

It's too bad we can't see the SS's lines. I think the unveiling looked blah with the lighting that was available. Hoping it looks better in person or a different color.

You guys must be blind. I see tons of similarities


Both of them have 4 wheels, headlights, a front bumper, a windshield, 4 doors, a v8, and some crap on the interior.

Looks just like a C63 right?!!?!?

I do see a couple thing. the hood has the two contour lines on it and the grille shape and I guess some could possibly say that the headlights are somewhat similar too.

I see a bit of that too along with similar grille shape but that shouldn't be any reason to say it "almost has a Mercedes c63 amg look to it", it's far from almost, if this is almost then i don't know what is
motor trend should fire who ever said that lol

I can see it somewhat in a regular C Class, with the similarity in both the position of the headlamps being pushed out to the edges, and the design and relative position of the LED running lights in the lower fascia.

No it doesn't.


You can actually go to a Mercedes dealer and see a C63 AMG, which means it is an actuall car.

The SS is just a concept car, and that is all it will ever truly be.

wth, with 70 something posts I though you would know better, the Chevy SS was once a concept just like a lot of production cars on the road today and we are getting a production model chevy SS.

I am angry about this. Im not making any bones about it.

Yes there will be Chevy SSs in the US.

Making those of us who want one wait for it to be built to order makes a mockery of your buyers.

That is why I am being so critical, because that criticism is waranted.

You may someday be able to walk into a Chevy dealership and see (not touch or drive) someone else's SS that they've paid for and waited three months to arrive. It may as well be a concept car for all practical purposes.

Conversely, you can walk into a Mercedes store and there you'll find a selection of C63's that you can drive and, if you like one, can buy it that same day.

That'll probably be the case, the SS's we see in dealerships being one's people ordered and waiting to pick up.

Mercedes is on a different level from Chevy if you know what I mean but they could at least make the whole buying process "friendly" to us, time will tell.

It's not unique to Mercedes...virtually every production car on the market is available on the lot right now. Can you imagine Ford telling Mustang buyers to put a deposit on the car sight unseen and wait three months for it to be built. And by the way, you can't pick and choose your options or drive train? Do you know what those Mustang buyers would be called?

"Camaro Owners".

Now if the SS had a broad options and package list, and a variety of exterior and interior colors, and a variety of wheel packages, and an optional stick, and optional magnetic ride control, then having a car truly built-to-order would be well worth the wait. You'd get exactly what you want, and you wouldn't pay for stuff that isn't important to you.I'd expect to wait for that car to be built and I'd happily lay down a decent deposit to make it happen.

The SS ain't that. Pick from 5 very safe colors... Rental Car White, AARP Silver, Afraid To Decide Black, Ass Rape Red and Booger Green...and sunroof or no sunroof. Great...that'll be $40,000 and three months. Welcome the Heatbeat Of America, presently on bypass.

Well said. Hoping they have an announcement that brings back some passion for this car on this forum and it makes ordering the car worth it. Doesn't seem likely at this point, but I still have hope. Until then the car seat will be finagled into the back seat of the Camaro when we want to go for a cruise.

hahaha. Just spat out my water.

Man GM marketing must read this forum and think "what a bunch of haters"

Well GM. We aren't haters. We just want a dam price. And we want a 6MT transmission.

To be specific, we want the 7 speed manual from the 2014 C7 Corvette.

But, we will NOT buy the SS without a manual transmission.
