The word

Chevy first premiered a version of its 50th Anniversary Corvette Stingray Concept at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, and the vehicle appeared as “Sideswipe” in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

As the GM press release reads,

The Corvette Stingray Concept was developed as an internal design challenge to combine classic Corvette cues with surprisingly high-tech features, modern materials, and a striking new appearance. The car is well-appointed with a clamshell hood, scissor-style doors, ergonomic seats, rear-view camera with night vision enhancement, and a high performance hybrid drive. Interactive touch controls allow the driver to customize the power and efficiency of his or her ride and share it with friends via the in-car camera system and advanced telemetrics.

And so ….

Courtesy of Chevrolet, here's a brief retrospective of the Corvette Stingray, beginning with the first incarnation in 1959 and continuing through to the most recent images released by Chevrolet.
