        Hwasup Lee was the person selected in 2010 when GM conducted a contest among its ten (10) worldwide design centers to choose the original concept drawing for the C7 Stingray

        He also was involved in subsequent C7 designs such as the ZR1, and also Was and is an integral part of the C8 design team. He is a design superstar. Here is that 2010 Hwasup Lee winning C7 concept design.


        There are definitely parts of this concept that made it into the C8 final’s design, such as the flat, horizontal, rear corner part of the C8’s deck, and also that very prominent horizontal, front to rear, door extruding strake on the C8 which also got its start from his 2010 concept.

        I expect that he is now working on the unique design elements of the C8 ZR1 (just as he did for the C7 ZR1), and afterwards onto ZORA’s design elements.

        Of course he is contributing part of the whole C8 design team, lead by Michael Simcoe and Chief C8 Exterior Designer Kirk Bennion.
