Transformer's Corvette Stingray Concept Replica from Custom Hell

It's not for me... but...

Quote:
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 including its 440 hp LS2 V8 and 6spd automatic transmission. You get a clear title and 29,111 miles on the odometer to boot.

So, what else? Well, the bodywork, exhaust, air intake and interior decals are all new. And an ECU tune is good for a purported, though still unconfirmed, 430 hp. Jet stream blue paint. There's also Jet Stream Blue Paint, LED headlights (which surely can't be road legal) and "adjustable ride control" with "electric tilt front end". Is this a car or a sex toy?

Better still, is trying to choose a favorite quote from the seller's description. My two picks are:

"BUILT BY A PROFESSIONAL CAR BUILDER..... NOT SOME KID IN HIS GARAGE... And take a close look and you will see the difference."

And:

"Now with most "Replicas" you can tell from ten feet away that they are a replica's... We are proud that this "CONCEPT" car looks like a FACTORY BUILT CAR. NO one would ever know that this was not build by Chevy."

Oh, and the capitalization and grammatical errors are all the seller's own 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.

Wow, that is just terrible. This looks like exactly what it is, a poorly executed rip off of the movie car that misses all the finer points. The stock C6 looks much better than this.

Hope he has the license to use the "StingRay" name since GM trademarked it.

I really hope they never actually produce the vette that was in T2, or anything close to this thing either... no bueno in my book.

i think that car is too short, it kind of looks/feels like it needs to be longer. i would never buy that kit, but when it comes to the actual stingray that GM built for the movie i would buy that thing in a heart beat if i could afford it.

the rear of that stingray is one of the coolest i've ever seen in a car.
