We all know that dreams can come true. Now, we are not suggesting that your vehicle is going to transform into a cerebral human/robot like existence and save the world from impending doom. We are talking about designers, conjuring up thoughts and crafting them into concepts, molding them into demos and building a fully functioning prototype.
General Motors vehicles are the stars of Michael Bay’s Transformers, the Hollywood blockbuster movie franchise. From the Chevy Camaro known as Bumblebee to the GMC TopKick pickup truck known as Ironhide. The living vehicles have been captivating audiences worldwide since 2007 and are now in their third instalment: Transformers – Dark of the moon.
Do you remember in the 2007 Transformers film when Bumblebee transformed from the 1977 Camaro into the 2009 Camaro concept? Amazing! The Camaro was back! At least the concept was alive and roaring across the silver screen in blazon yellow. That is until the spring of 2009 when the concept became a reality and Bumblebee (a.k.a. Chevrolet Camaro SS) was available to the public. Hopefully lightning will strike twice and we will see another Chevrolet concept vehicle transform into full production.
Currently, it may be Sideswipe’s shot to evolve from fiction to fact. In the second Transformers film called Rise of the Fallen, Sideswipe takes on the form of a Silver Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and just like Bumblebee, Sideswipe is taking on the form of a concept car. In the third film the Stingray concept car is featured as a convertible.
If we see this dream come true, the Corvette Stingray will become the new bench mark for excellence in both design and vehicle functionality. The concept vehicle is a hi-performance hybrid and is set to change the way people view fuel efficient vehicles. The new Stingray will prove, once and for all, that you can have fuel efficiency, intelligence, horse power and torque in the same package. And all this will be wrapped in the perfection of the Corvette Stingray. The most beautiful American car ever built.
Here’s to dreaming…
