If you’re a big fan of the Transformers Corvette Stingray Coupe revealed in Chicago back in 2009, we have some good news and some bad news for you.
The bad news is that you can’t buy that particular car.
The good news is that apparently someone in Georgia liked the Stingray concept car so much that they went out and made one of their own – sort of.
Since the new Corvette Stingrays have hit the streets, we’ve actively been searching the ‘net looking for examples of each of the 10 colors available. But since the C7′s introduction in January, one color has alluded us until now – Arctic White.
Last weekend, one of the engineers from the Bowling Green Assembly Plant made the one hour drive down I65 in an Arctic White 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe to the Cars and Coffee gathering in Nashville and we’re very excited to share these photos with you.

But one ingenious C4 Corvette owner decided to skip that debate and have it both ways by installing a mock 350 V8 in the rear cargo area of a 1985 yellow Coup [sic]. If you love this idea, then the good news is that this Corvette can be yours as it’s now listed for sale on Craigslist.
