 Early Chicago Concept unveiling – You-Tube  ...another one 

Published on 12 February 2009 - Car Body Design / Automotive Design & Engineering

GM has unveiled the Corvette Stingray Concept, the one-off dream car inspired by the 1959 Stingray race car and the Corvette heritage that will be featured in the upcoming summer blockbuster movie Transformers II.

At the 2009 Chicago Auto Show GM has unveiled the Corvette Stingray Concept, already previewed in the past months under the name of "Vision Concept" and "Centennial Concept".

The car will be among the characters of the upcoming "Transformers II: Revenge of the Fallen", where it will "act" as the four-wheels counterpart of Sideswipe.

The sleek concept was "dreamed up" by the Corvette designers at GM, who were influenced by the original Stingray race car, introduced in 1959.

The Concept also draws on Corvette heritage cues from other generations and brings them together in a futuristic shape that "seems to be equal parts racecar and space ship".

“SIDESWIPE represents an exercise in exploration for the Corvette,” said Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Global Design.

“By giving my creative team the freedom to design no-holds-barred vision concepts, it helps them push boundaries and look at projects from different perspectives.”

 
     

Transformers II: Revenge of the Fallen

The Chevrolet stand at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show (Friday through Feb. 22) features five Chevrolet-based characters – including four all-new characters – featured in the new from the upcoming DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures release, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”, which is set to open in the United States on June 26

The four new movie characters are:

  • SIDESWIPE – a stylized Corvette vision concept vehicle

  • SKIDS and MUDFLAP – twin AUTOBOTS® based on Chevy’s Beat (a concept that will go into production as the Chevy Spark in 2011) and Trax concepts

  • JOLT – an AUTOBOT based on the upcoming Chevrolet Volt extended-range electric vehicle

  • BUMBLEBEE, the heroic AUTOBOT based on Chevrolet’s Camaro concept from the first “Transformers” movie, returns with a high-performance attitude. Joining the vehicles on stage will be BUMBLEBEE in his AUTOBOT form, standing almost 17 feet (5.2 meters) tall and 13 feet (4 meters) wide.

     

It has been OFFICIALLY NAMED - the 2009 ZR1
