Default Transformers Corvette Concept NEW PIC

Could this not only be the car seen last week on the set of Transformers but also a new Corvette Concept???

hopefully they tone it down a bit from concept to production although it would look very cool if they take the current style and add that stingray flared fender/front end look

I see a modern interpretation of the shark concept. I like it except for the headlight placement. A horizontal layout of the lights would make the car even more sinister, I think.

Either way... sign me up.

I know it's a "concept" but I'm not a fan of the front end shown or the headlights.

I see a LOT of manta ray in this concept.

F'ing hideous. I hate the "retro" movement. Those cars were beautiful in their day and will never be matched. I hope GM does what they did with the C6 and just keeps moving forward.

I think the C6 is a little retro. Took more elements from the C3s, as opposed to the straighter lines on C4s and C5s.

Yes, I agree. Cues are completely acceptable, I just hate it when retro design goes overboard.

looks like where the C6 was an evolution this thing will be a revolution. but again hard to say what might make it to production( especially those lights) this concept was also reported to have vertical lambo doors

The sides of the car still looks like the C6, just a bit sharper in the fenders which I like. Once I see this car in its entirety, I think I'll like it even more.

The angle on this pic makes the front end look more bulbous than it probably is.
