The side of the vehicle comes with strong chararcter lines that make the Sidewinder concept look rugged. At the rear, it has narrow tallights as well as a spoiler. The rear bumper of the Sidewinder concept is accented by silver garnish.

Inside, it features a Swedspot Android-based OLED infotainment system and display screens. Swedspot is a Swedish company that provides open infotainment systems. Looking at the rendered interior image, the cabin of the Sidewinder concept is dominated by black along with chrome trims as seen on the door panel and dashboard.

It is powered by a Chevrolet LSX Bowtie big block engine that delivers 613 PS at 6400rpm and 600 Nm of torque at 5400rpm. It can go from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds with a top speed of 150 km/h.

Aside from the Sidewinder concept, Gray Design has also came up with the Vapour GT which was developed for the “radical” automotive enthusiasts.
