Transformers Concept Corvette ‘Sideswipe’ on Temporary Display at the National Corvette Museum

Visitors to the Museum can view a piece of Hollywood

Bowling Green, KY – Visitors to the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky will get an extra special treat September 5 through 9th when they visit the Museum. Sideswipe - the Chevrolet Corvette concept vehicle character from the new “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” movie is on display on Corvette Boulevard and will be unveiled Saturday. Sideswipe is a sleek concept created by Corvette Designers and is influenced by the original Sting Ray race car, introduced in 1959.

“In honor of the 50th anniversary of the original Corvette Sting Ray concept racer, GM Design created an all new Sting Ray Vision that is a homage to the original 1959 concept and continues the long tradition of Corvette Concept Cars,” said Harlan Charles, Chevrolet Corvette Marketing Manager. “This futuristic Sting Ray vision of America’s performance icon was featured as Sideswipe in Transformers 2,” he added.

The concept, along with the four other Chevrolet Transformer Autobots, debuted at the Chicago Auto Show in February. The DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures film opened in the United States on June 26. The car is on display as part of the National Corvette Museum’s 15th Anniversary Celebration event.

The National Corvette Museum is located at I-65, exit 28 in Bowling Green, Kentucky and is open daily 8am to 5pm. The Museum will be open until 8pm on Wednesday, September 2, Friday, September 4 and Saturday, September 5. For more information, visit www.corvettemuseum.org or call 800-53-VETTE (83883).

I gotta see the tail of this car. I think there is a victory yellow one in a commercial I'm seeing on TV. But you only see the rear 3/4view.

The 2nd 2 aren't as in focus as I would like. I didn't notice when I took them. Here are the shots I got.

that beast doesnt even need to be in focus to look mean, lol

thanks for posting, good to see the body lines at different angles
I've got some pics on the camera at home I'll try to have them up by tomorrow. It was a mad house around there. You'd have thought they were unveiling the C7 from the way people were acting. 1 highlight I really liked is the carbon fiber seat buckets, would love to see this make it to the next gen Vette.
