Click above for a high-res photo of BadBoyVettes.com's Corvette Stingray C7.R rendering

While the Corvette Stingray Concept (a.k.a. Autobot Sideswipe) introduced at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this month sports heritage-inspired cues, its futuristic styling could also hint at the design of the next-generation model. GM made no comment on whether any of the concept would find make its way into the C7 Corvette, but there will doubtless be plenty of people willing to speculate. The gang at BadBoyVettes.com have taken it one step further and have come up with what the C7.R would look like if the Stingray went to production as-is. Using one of our live shots from the show, they've added the Corvette Racing livery, complete with the "Jake" skull mascot featured prominently on the hood. We think they did a good job, which is to be expected, since BBV helped put together the design schemes for the actual C6.R racers. In full race livery, the Stingray looks like it'd be equally adept at chasing down Gulf-liveried Aston Martins or battling giant evil robots. After all, Jake plays no favorites; he's an equal-opportunity intimidator.

      That is positively evil.

      I hated this car in the pictures earlier this week, but now that I have seen it in person I has grown on me. I think if they toned the front and rear down an bit it could work. The side profile is really sweet.

        i agree the front and rear are too much.

      We truly are living in the era of big grills. Paul Wall must be so damn proud.

      It's interesting. ALl through the 80s and 90s, the mainstream consumer loved boxy, bland boring shapes. And now they've gone to overdone, redundantly curveceous, flame-surfaced bubbles with no stops in between lol.

      Hope the powers in Washington wont ask GM to not make this car as a condition to receiving the cash.

      Love everything about the concept except the 'face' -- cars do not need to smile!

        Aww, but I love those Chevron commercials.

      Another design from the school of Batmobile.

      Three cheers for freshman art student car design.

      I like the skull Vette logo. Why didn't they think of that sooner?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Sooner? "Jake" (the skull's name...) has been on the ALMS C6-R for years now. It might have been on the C5-R as well...

        Jake is also on the underhood of the production ZR1

      The fact that this is so sweet all but guarantees it not getting built.
      • 5 Years Ago
      That skull completes the car. That is awesome. That is awesome. That is awesome.

      If I saw that coming up behind me on a track, I'd speed into the nearest barrier in shock and terror.

      I still think it's ugly as sin
