This concept Corvette - just unwrapped at the Chicago Auto Show - will be a new character in the upcoming film "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Other Chevrolet "characters" include a purple Volt, two Beat subcompacts, and of course, the yellow "bumblebee" Camaro.
Sadly, the Corvette concept won't get on the Bowling Green line for production, though its silky surface, mixed with angled creases like on the Lamborghini Reventon, would translate well into future designs.
Chevrolet says the Transformer Vette is reminiscent of the 1959 Stingray roadster concept. If that doesn't ring a bell, remember the C4 with a marine V-12 engine? Or the mid-engine CERV III? Neither does anyone except Motor Trend, which reviewed the 1959 Stingray and other Corvette concepts that never went past the auto show floor.
For an overkill of photos, head over to Jalopnik.
