So a couple of weeks ago we asked you to help us identify a mystery car on the set of Transformers 2. Quite a few of you guessed it was some sort of Corvette concept, or the C7 Corvette due in 2010. For those of you who guessed Corvette concept, you were right. The picture above is that concept, and according to speculation it is getting some paint work done in the house of Chip Foose. We don't know if these pics were taken before or after the car's closeup, but we hope it was afterward and that GM is getting ready to actually show us the car. Jalopnik's also got pics of Bumblebee getting paint work done in the same shop. It's a much yellower Bumblebee than the orange one seen on the TF2 set, and word is it could be a Z/28... or it could be a package you'd order from... Saleen? Click the link for the photos and gossip.

      And Chip Foose once again ruins a classic piece of American Iron.

      Awww yeah, that thing rocks. It looks like it'll eat your young.

      If they can bring that to market as-is it is game-F'n-on.

      I haven't really been a fan of 'vettes since the old stingrays. While the recent generations $/performance ratio has been amazing, I just haven't been intrigued by the looks. This changes that in a big way!

      Looks like a ricer got a hold of a C3 vette to me.

      The next Corvette should be a modern interpretation of a '63. Or at least bring in some other Stingray design elements. I've hated Corvettes since '83. I just don't like the conservative design on what should be the premier American car.

      The shape of the concept looks good but the details are all wrong, like the headlights.

      I doubt the Z/28 will end up looking like that. The lights are decals on Bumblebee and everything looks too plastic in real life. In the movies it looks good though.

      Interesting take on the vette design, but we all need to keep in mind that this is a movie prop!

      OH and I doubt that's what the C7 will look like. Too of a ummmmm speedracer

        even if it was dumbed down...whats wrong w/ a camaro w/ a hood scoop racing stripe, and front air damn/lip? i thought that both the mustang, and upcoming challenger HP models had both of these...are those rice too?
      • 6 Years Ago
      meh....i still think its a one off for the movie...not a Vette concept

      Wow, that is one menacing corvette. Paint it black and you have the perfect Batmobile.

      Althought I do prefer side-swept headlight over swept-back ones, I think I could tolerate this. This thing looks just too mean for me to not like it.

      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that Corvette looks F'ing MEEEEEAN. I love it.

      The front end of this thing just looks Bizarre!
      Maybe this will be a Rebirth of Jazz or Scorponok.

      Hint hint. "The Fallen" is a bad guy from the original transformers series. He is supposedly a tank or space ship or something.
