The name is Korean for “future,” but if anything, the Chevrolet Mi-Ray Concept looks forward into the past, using advanced technology and a Jetsons-style design to harken back to the brand’s long sports car heritage.
The Chevy Mi-Ray Concept vehicle will make its debut at the Seoul Motor Show, this week, a standout at an event typically dominated by home-market offerings like the Hyundai Blue2 Concept. (Click Here for a look at that Korean fuel cell prototype.)
Like any number of General Motors concept vehicles – such as the striking Cadillac Cien, Chevy designers suggest they were influenced by “fighter jets.” But they also drew upon the long list of Chevrolet concepts and production cars past, everything from the Corvette gallery to the 1962 Corvair Super Spyder and 1963 Monza SS.
Classic cues include the flying buttresses that flow out of the headrests and the minimalist, wraparound windshield. But the Chevy Mi-Ray is anything but a retro-mobile.
