The Chevrolet Monza never found the love affair like its performance-oriented cousins, the Chevrolet Camaro and Chevrolet Corvette. However, it did have sporting intentions, despite sharing much with the Chevrolet Vega.
That was the past, and one San Francisco Academy of Art student, Utsav Shah, has imagined the future for the nameplate. In fact, it’s hardly recognizable as a Chevrolet.
Shah targeted the future of sports cars with a video game inspiration and an immersive experience. The concept is also a competent, track-ready car. Shah also took inspiration from motorcycle controls—there is not steering wheel, but instead, a handlebar control mechanism is present.
The concept is on a Monza by name, with nothing truly harkening back to the Monza of yore. Maybe, if anything, the edgy shape of the car is a nod to the past. The Monza was always a neat looking, wedge shape. However, a pair of Corvette Grand Sport hash marks reside on each fender as a reference to Chevrolet performance.
The concept is merely for design purposes, so don’t expect production to take place anytime soon. However, dreamers will keep on dreaming.
