http://www.autoblog.com/2008/06/11/mystery-car-spotted-during-transformers-2-filming/



To all of you Autoblog sleuths out there, it's time to go to work. The silver car in the picture above was spotted on the set of Transfomers 2 filming in Pennsylvania. The wheels (cartoonishly large out back) and lines, and the fact that GM is a major player in the film, would seem to suggest it's some sort of GM product or concept -- although not the Corvette ZR-1, as some have claimed. It's also got the same concept mirrors that GM loves to use and kind of looks like Bumblebee's evil Decepticon twin. The shooter also said that the car has scissor doors like a Lamborghini.
Interesting, eh?

Looks like the ZR1 and Camaro had a romp in the back of a car carrier and this is their evil Demon Spawn!!!!


I hope this is a preview of the C7...Very aerodynamic.

We've heard talk of a mid-engined Corvette before, and that looks an awful lot like the classic Vette profile to me. I'd guess that it's either a C7 concept that will beget a less radical production version, or perhaps the next gen XLR concept.

Regarding how early a showing this would be for the next Corvette, let's not forget GM's tendancy to show off their designs years before production starts (ala Camaro).


By the way, I hope this movie rocks as much as the first one!

This car looks awfully similar to the Cadillac Cien concept 7 years ago. However, I do believe this car to be the next gen Corvette. But we'll see when the movie comes out next year.

Looks like if Megatron and a C6 had a baby...
Lots of Corvette design cues in it, but looks mid engine. Dunno if I could say that is a Caddy..

What I would like to see from this?

It be a GM concept that used Eflex...but for a performance supercar concept!
They could also use this as the "concept" for the C7 Corvette
Maybe CERV IV?

A 70 mpg hybrid Corvette Concept?


It does have Corvette written all over it, at least from the photo. It has the 1968-1982 Corvette coke-bottle/mako shark look....


Mako Shark III?

Stingray?

CERV IV?

My first thought was Cein, but it has too much of a corvette profile in it, Maybe it will be a concept of the next vette and GM will use Transformers to gauge a public responce to it?

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking. Man, wouldn't that be a hardcore ballzy move by GM if it were the next gen Cadillac XLR?!? I think we'd all stand and applaud.
