Chevrolet Miray

Making its debut at the Seoul Motor Show is the Chevrolet Miray. The Miray, Korean for future, is a hybrid sports car that is the first concept car from the Korean arm of GM. Which, considering its name, aptly represents the future of the brand as well as the ‘future of muscle cars.'

Said to take influence from past Detroit legends such as the 1963 Monza SS and Corvair Super Spyder, the Miray features a pleathora of sporting influences, making its intentions clear. The carbon fiber reinforced plastic body, is said to resemble that of the jet and integrates LM racer-esque vertical doors. Carbon fiber is used extensively throughout the car, through its spoiler and wheels, emphasizin the aerodynamic focus of the car.

Inside also echoes the ‘future' sports theme of the exterior, with a ‘dual cockpit' design that encases both driver and passenger seats. The IP features ambient lighting that further cocoons the occupants, whilst a ‘back projection' system relays the neccesary information, whilst eliminating unnecessary visual cluter.
