Thumbs up "Sideswipe" from Transformers is now OFFICIALLY the Corvette Stingray Concept



50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept
Design and technology come together to celebrate Corvette’s past, present and future.

Chevrolet delivers a futuristic vision of technology and design with the 50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept. A version of the model was first shown at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show and stars as “Sideswipe” in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The Corvette Stingray Concept represents both the iconic legacy and an exciting future for Corvette.

The Corvette Stingray Concept was developed as an internal design challenge to combine classic Corvette cues with surprisingly high-tech features, modern materials, and a striking new appearance. The car is well-appointed with a clamshell hood, scissor-style doors, ergonomic seats, rear-view camera with night vision enhancement, and a high performance hybrid drive. Interactive touch controls allow the driver to customize the power and efficiency of his or her ride and share it with friends via the in-car camera system and advanced telemetrics.

Personally, I think this is the result of inbreeding. Cadillac has mated with Chevy.....this is what we get.

Awesome looking, but that design has no chance of being built on an assembly line.

While they announced it, that was pretty much the idea

I like it as a concept car, if most of that design hits production, it will need to grow on me for sure.

i hope they don't change a thing, the whole idea for design of the stingray was based off of sealife, and that thing looks like somethin from the Marianas Trench!!!while still being an excellent representation of past corvettes!
