Default Chevrolet Corvette Concept

This is definately a looker.

"Two new photos have emerged of what is believed to be the forthcoming Chevrolet Corvette Concept. The images follow a series of spy shots depicting the same vehicle over the past several weeks. The car is expected to make an appearance in “Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen,” which arrives in theaters about a year from now. "

"There is some speculation the car might preview the 2011 Corvette C7(which will go on sale in mid-2010), but at this point we have no confirmation whatsoever. "

Notice from the first picture, they haven't just produced one but TWO. This might mean that one of them gets destroyed in the movie. Reminds me of the Aston Martin's DBS ruined in Bond movies and the Porsche Carrera GT ruined in Redline.

I doubt if its 2011 Corvette.
There are two Corvette here. And I wonder if there is enough power under the hood to justify the quad exhausts. It looks great though.

I am also able to spot Chevrolet Beat on this set !

The rear looks way too ugly. The side profile looks mean and straight out of a Sci-Fi flick. Looks good from the side. Inspired by the Camaro concept i guess.

I think it's just a one-off they made for the movie.

I could be wrong though.

The Chevy Beat looks pretty good in the first pic.

The side profile is killer! The tail is ugly though!

a little of the rear seems inspired from the upcoming Lexus LF-A.
