Transformer's Corvette Stingray Concept Replica from Custom Hell

Chevrolet's 2009 50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept that made its way into the Transformers movies is one of those love-it / hate-it cars. On the one hand, it was sleek and muscular and pointed to the next generation Corvette. On the other hand, it owed a bit too much design-wise with the 2003 Cadillac Cien and the nods to the original Corvette Stingray appeared a little forced.

Still, I'd find it hard to believe that anyone, even lovers of the '09 Concept, would consider putting down over US$40 grand on this so-called replica. It's even harder to believe that underneath all that fibreglass is a 2005 C6 Corvette; it could just have easily been based on a twenty year old Mazda Miata / MX-5 like so many other eBay customs.

So what does the US$42,500 "Buy It Now Price" get us? For starters, the underpinnings from the C6 Corvette which includes its 440 hp LS2 V8 and 6spd computerized transmission. You get a clean identify and 29,111 miles on the odometer in addition.

So, what else? Well, the bodywork, exhaust, air intake and interior decals are all new. And an ECU tune is good for a purported, even though nonetheless unconfirmed, 430 hp. Jet flow blue paint. There's additionally Jet Stream Blue Paint, LED headlights (which absolutely can not be street felony) and "adjustable journey control" with "electric powered tilt front stop". Is this a vehicle or a sex toy?

Better still, is making an attempt to pick a favorite quote from the vendor's description. My two choices are:

"BUILT BY A PROFESSIONAL CAR BUILDER..... NOT SOME KID IN HIS GARAGE... And take a near appearance and you may see the distinction."


"Now with most "Replicas" you may tell from ten toes away that they are a duplicate's... We are proud that this "CONCEPT" automobile looks as if a FACTORY BUILT CAR. NO one could ever understand that this became not build by means of Chevy."

Oh, and the capitalization and grammatical mistakes are all the supplier's personal doing, not ours. Honest.

There are at least three of these replicas roaming about the Pacific Northwest, one of which allegedly appeared in Vette magazine. Oh, and there's a video too. We'll leave it up to our readers to properly "dissect" this abhorrent mutation, in the comment's section below.
