The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray concept was introduced at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show. Five Chevrolet-based characters were featured in the movie "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". The character Sideswipe took the form of a sleek, vision concept dreamed up by the Corvette designers at GM. The design was influenced by the original 1959 Stingray Racer, but also drew on Corvette heritage clues from other generations. It brought together in a futuristic shape that seems to be equal parts racecar and spaceship.
