Transformers Corvette Stingray Concept Goes Topless

Ahh, Southern California. The land where fact and fiction can blur and what you see may not always be the case. That’s what we think when taking a look at a Speedster version of the 50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept that was recently spotted parked on a street in Beverly Hills.

If you take a closer look at this Speedster and then compare it to the original 50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept that was shown at the Chicago Auto Show in 2009 as well as in the movie Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, you will see some major differences: A different hood with dual openings in the front, No LED vertical headlights – a more conventional lighting system appears tucked into the front recesses, different wheels and a different front grille. Also, as the original Stingray Concept featured Lambo-style doors, either this car’s door is slightly ajar or the gaps on these new door panels gaps are just horrendous.

Here are couple of comparison photos from the original Corvette Stingray Concept:

Our guess is that someone had finally put together a rebody kit based on the Stingray Concept but took it a step further by chopping the windshield and roof and making into a Speedster version. Last year we came across an eBay auction for a Stingray Concept kit but at the time it was nothing more than vaporware.

But, because this car was seen in Beverly Hills and with Transformers 3 in production for a 2011 release, maybe Sideswipe decided to transform into something more appropriate for the California sunshine.

  1. I LOVE it!!!

    Probably for the Transformer movie, as this car clearly does not have a top that can go on with the windsheild also shortened (unless a midget drives the car.)

  2. WOW!!!! That is fantastic looking, I love the chopped look that they went with and yes after reading the remark about the wing I can see it. That I feel would be a popular Vette!

  3. This is what I’ve been working and looking for. I great looking concept that could be built on a c5 or c6 platform. Any of you out there think a stingray concept replica body kit would sell? I am planning on building one, but it’s gotta be perfect! New body, new interior but use the great newer corvette running gear.
