The Chevrolet Stingray Concept is a design study with no current plans to be produced, though never say never – there is always a small possibility of it being used in the future when GM goes to the drawing board for a next generation Corvette.
It seems that Michael Bay was touring the GM styling studios looking for cars to be made into new characters for the Transformers 2: Revenge of The Fallen movie and liked the car so much that he decided to use it for a new character – Sideswipe.
We don’t know if there was any plans to display the Stingray to the public originally, but whether it was because of the movie character or not, the new Stingray concept Corvette made its debut this week at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show. The Stingray Concept takes the Corvette down the retro-futurism road with elements from both the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray and the modern day Corvette. Even the Sting Ray badge has been updated.
Look after the jump for a video of GM’s Global Design Vice president Ed Welburn taking us through a walkthrough of the concept.
