Chevrolet says Mali-BOOYAH! Instead of Malibu, As SEMA-bound Concept Gets Ready for the Streetz!

       I love this Chevrolet Malibu SEMA concept render! It is terrific! I really enjoy how the rear portion of the car sorts of leans into the front. The large wheels, in addition,  prop up the bold, dashing looking, and are easy on the eyes with their eye-catching  sexy, spicy design.
The front of the car is beautiful as well, especially with the lovely body work going on in the lower fascia area.
       Let me start under the headlamps. Look closely at this particular location, here, the headlamp is recessed, or rather it is preceded by a lip (let me just use that automotive wheel terminology for a moment). This lip continues downward, slanting, and achieving a tapered or pointed form as it reaches the lower air intake. Juxtaposed right besides this is another "working" of the metal. You can recognize it by that shape -the first half of it - that nearly resembles a helicopter's tail section (refer to third picture below). Now talking about this overall design, it essentially "comes" off the hood bulge. It's apart of the package (refer to second picture below), so to speak. But what I like about it is how it sits right between the lower air intake and the grille above. It accents the grille and adds to the showing of a powerful design presence at the front of the car. Now, moving back up on the front area of the car, checkout the headlamps. First of all, they are not of a usual bland Chevrolet style to begin with. Second, the design of the inner housing is a bolder design than the exterior design, and it visually coincides with the exterior design of the headlamp, having the effect of looking as if it is apart of it, or is one piece. This is a beautiful effect  of design trick-ology, that gives the entire headlamp a focused and eagle-like appearance. Lastly, moving all the way down on the front fascia - to the fog lamps - is a red inner outline, which matches the red disc brakes. It also complements the body of the car as well - the red against what appears to be a dark navy-ish blue. The color contrast is of of a perfect temperature!
