The Chevy Monte Carlo is one of those nameplates that conjures quite a few memories for some General Motors fans. Produced for six generations in on-again, off-again style between 1970 and 2007, the Monte Carlo sought to combine slick two-door styling and a comfortable cabin with a thrilling experience behind the wheel. The question is this – what would a modern Chevy Monte Carlo look like?
To find out, digital automotive designer wb.artist20 applied the design cues of the old-school Chevy Monte Carlo SS G-body to a current Chevy Camaro, and the result is the rendering you see here.
“If you’re getting Camaro vibes than you would be correct since that’s what I used as the base!” wb.artist20 writes.
Indeed, there are quite a few components to this rendering that remind us of the Camaro – for example, the squared-off headlamps and lower grille insert are quite familiar.
That said, wb.artist20 did more than just add a few nips and tucks to the Camaro and call it a day. The proportions are also longer and chunkier, with an upright rear pillar adding to the flat rear deck. We also like the restyled upper grille section reminiscent of the old Chevy Monte Carlo SS. The paint is done in black, while red striping was added down the flanks and hood.
We’ve seen wb.artist20’s work before, including a modern Chevy Suburban with retro cues, a full-size modern Chevy Blazer, and a modern Pontiac Aztek rendered on top of a 2021 Chevy Trailblazer, not to mention a modernized third-gen Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z. Per usual, this modern Chevy Monte Carlo looks on point.
