Wasn't that car in a movie?
I think it should be noted that this was a concept vehicle developed specifically to appear as a 'character' in the upcoming Transformers movie. There's no evidence that this will actually find its way into production.
That said, I have to disagree with you. From various photos I've seen of it, it does have some marvellous angles. I just think it's the wrong color. It needs to be black.
The car doesn't do justice to what the Vette has been morphing into the last 50+ years. Lets start at the front. The headlights are nearly nonexistant. Popup lights are a sign of a Corvette with the exeption of the C1 and C6. I think they should make a comback in the C7. Also, it looks like the car is smiling at you. Vettes are supposed to stare you down and just wait for you to try something. The sides are nice but could use a few tucks. Now the back. Oh my. What is this monstrosity. Look at your C1-C6 models. On the back you start with a round edge on a C1. The C2 made a slant to the bumper. The C3 flattend the rear and gave it a downward and an upward slant. C4 introduced the HUGE rearend. C5 took the C4 rearend and made it bigger and better, rounded the tailights (and on the front end gave it nice curves). The C6 took the C5 rear, tucked it with nice black plastic, and smoothed out the rough (if there are any) edges. The C7 concept for the Transformer movie is GM's attempt at a futuristic look. The changes should be more (I hate to use the word but) evelutionary from the rest of the Corvettes. In my opinion, this concept is an epic fail and shouldn't be the final product of Chevy's C7 Corvette. Thanks for reading.
