Not one to brag about my automotive skills, mostly. But I can see a Corvette reskin from about five miles away. And I certainly know what cutting-edge design does and does not look like.
IsoRevolta IsoRivolta Vision Gran Turismo is fairly hideous on first inspection. It is a dated example of surfacing with little to no aerodynamic engineering to justify its many wings.
The carved bodywork and pseudo floating fenders are interesting. How could a giant Chevy V8 fit under a hood even lower than the stock Corvette?!
This VGT Sport concept is ostensibly available to buy. Not sure who would want it. The basis is a Callaway Corvette.
But any Vette basis instantly sets off alarm bells. Note: they do not actually specify if this is even a C7. It could be a C5 under that plastic bodywork — barely holding all its parts together for the showstand.
Sorry to be harsh. But you have to realize that pricing for this imposter is likely to be around $500k. This is a shameless amount of markup for an old car title –= even if it was reborn by a legendary Italian design house.
The new Aston Martin Zagato collaborations are also pretty Pontiac-esque in their awfulness.
