In the latest episode of its "Hot Rod Unlimited" show, Motor Trend magazine explains how the Corvette’s design evolved from the model we saw for the first time back in 1953 and up to the seventh-generation that was just unveiled.

The guys over Motor Trend took a ride in a 1957 Corvette up to the Petersen Automotive Museum where the new C7 Stingray was presented. In here, the guys talked with Stingray designer, Kirk Bennion, who offers a brief history of Corvette’s design history.

He is also pointing to many rare Corvette models built, including the very first Motorama prototype, the race-winning Grand Sport and one of the last C6 ’Vettes ever built.

Each model was just a step closer to the final design we are seeing in the Corvette C7 - a design that is nearly perfect, that of course if you ask us!

It is interesting to see how the corvette’s design evolve throughout the years. Every change and modification seems interesting including the headlights, curves, interior and the convertible versions. I agree that the car’s design is nearly perfect.
