The Corvette Stingray is one of the most iconic cars in the world as far as its design is concerned. Its shape transcends decades of automotive advancements, as it is considered by many to be beautiful even by today’s standards.
It’s why Chevrolet is still reaping the benefits of having invented the Stingray to begin with, using the name within their current lineup for cars, but also building concept vehicles along the way, like the Stingray Concept from 2009 that starred in a Transformer movie.
That particular concept car marked the 50th anniversary of the nameplate, but what about its 60th? Well, a designer by the name of Dejan Hristov has that covered, putting together a digital iteration of the original Corvette Stingray Racer from 1959, albeit with a modern twist, of course.
The thing is, you can hardly use the term ‘modern’ in the same sentence with ‘Original Corvette Stingray’, because its design is simply put, timeless, and even a modern interpretation will inevitably have to adhere to a specific set of lines and curves that just don’t work anymore if they’re streamlined by 2019 standards.
According to Hristov, his project drew inspiration from the 1959 XP-87 Stingray Racer, but also the second-generation Vette. “At the same time, I tried to keep the DNA of all generations of Chevrolet Corvette,” he said.
We can also see the design of the interior, which is properly modern thanks to that massive infotainment display. Also, the top of the dashboard acts as a sort of continuation of the bonnet in terms of styling, which is a pretty neat touch.
