Corvette Moray

From Italy, with Love

Corvette Moray
Debates of all sorts are common amongst car enthusiasts. But there's one area where you won't find much argument: when it comes to styling, the Italians are the best.

So what would an Italian styled Corvette look like? Italdesign, a Turin Italy design and engineering firm has answered the question nicely with the Corvette Moray.

The work of Giorgetto and Fabrizio Giugiaro, the Moray was built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Corvette. It first appeared at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4, 2003.

The most interesting aspect of the Moray is that although it is clearly a new design, it still looks like a Corvette. This is very evident with the rear view (below) with the four round tail lights and the "Corvette" script. There's even a "Split Window" effect reminiscent of the 1963 Corvette Coupe.

More Corvette design cues: below, the silhouette has much in common with the C5 Corvette for which the Moray is based on. There are also the four semi-vertical slats, a nod to the 1967 Corvette. Note the fuel filler on the rear deck.

The interior continues the Corvette heritage. Note the "dual cockpit" motif similar to what can be found in the C2 and C5 Corvettes. Side view mirror function is accomplished up by small video cameras connected to displays on either side of the steering column. Bright areas are polished aluminum. Right: The door is mostly conventional save for the window / roof which rises like a birds wing. Not practical for rainy days!
