    Chevy Montego

    ok, called it the Montego, but it is a 2 door 2 seat hatchback based on the Kappa, design to be a hot hatch for the US, but RWD.



    This is a very rough sketch that I spent 20 minutes cleaning up in photo shop (messy paper syndrome).

    Idea is a lower priced 2 door 2 seat rwd coupe, ecotec 4 standard, turbo ecotec or turbo 6 for the SS.

    Re: Chevy Montego

    eh, it was a thought that somehow made it to paper.......

    I was thinking econo sports car under 15k sticker price.

    Kinda like a college kids car, storage in the back, sporty, economical, mod potential, etc.

    I like how the front bumper projects beyond the grill. This isn't a design you see much with american cars; it's on a lot of asian imports through. The simple front is strong, very much like a Honda/Acura product. I think the headlights need revising. I'd like to see a more realistic representation of the wheels (Less than 18").

    Reminds me a lot of the Torrana concept in profile/rear quarters.
    "I cannot wait for the new fad to come along, one that doesn't involve making respectable looking cars look as though they were parked nearby when the plastic factory exploded."

    i like the design, to it could be modernized a bit.


    BTW, when drawing ellipses, aren't the ellipses in one perspective have to be exactly the same (angle wise) but different in size?

    Its growing on me. I like it from the doors forward and especially the stance with those rims.

    I can dig it. Chevy doesn't have a Kappa and I don't think it will get one due to production contraints but if it did this would be right up my alley.

    nice, but it's a bit bland looking.

    Well, it's designed to be a cheap car. Still a little more enticing than an Aveo I hope.

    Why Montego? That's a well-known Ford (Mercury) name.
