To paraphrase Rene Magritte, this is not a car. Yes, it is a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 convertible, and it has an engine which can turn those 30-inch Forgiato gold saucers into forward motion. But the transformation by a Tampa tuning shop into what it calls the King ZL1 has placed the Camaro into the kind of debate heard around avant-garde galleries: Is it a piece of art, or a piece of garbage?

While this Vogue Korea shoot entitled “Simple is More” by Kim Han Jun, isn’t exactly a replica of Magritte’s oeuvre (like in Sir Realist), it’s clear that his work was the driving force behind its visuals. Magritte’s staples are all over this, with the use of clouds, bowler hats, umbrellas and the posing of the scenery. Really, all that is missing is a pipe, to clearly link it to one of Magritte’s most famous paintings.
