Convertible Corvette Sting Ray Concept Confirmed for Transformer 3

Last week we unearthed a picture of the Corvette Sting Ray Concept with its top chopped in Beverly Hills.

Actually, we were tipped to this unique Corvette-based Mach 5 from a twitter user who passed by it on Ventura Boulevard where the car was on the lot of Woodland Hills Quality Motors in LA.
