As the designer of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro Sangyup Lee is considered by most Camaro fans as the man who brought the Camaro back to life. He is by far the most unlikely person for the Camaro design job that was bestowed upon him because of where he was born and raised. Sangyup Lee was born and raised far from American cars and culture in Korea where his first experience with the Camaro was at the age of 20. Lee came to the US in 1995 to study Transportation design at the Art Center in Pasadena. He would later take a job with Porsche and Pininfarina in Europe before moving back stateside to work at General Motors.
The video above features Lee giving an interview and some insight into the design of the Camaro. There is also some great footage of the overall design process which is rarely seen. Check out the video above.
