Sangyup Lee

According to the folks over at Car Design News, Sangyup Lee, the respected designer of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, has resigned from General Motors and is on his way to accept a position as Chief Designer of Exterior at the Volkswagen/Audi Advanced studio in California.

Lee will take up his new position in mid-2010 and will report to Jens Manske who was appointed Executive Director earlier this year. He will be responsible in inspiring a new group of design staff in Santa Monica.

Lee worked with GM for 10 years. Along with working on the new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, Lee was also involved in the project between Bertone and GM where he created the 2004 Buick Velite Concept. He also threw in his two cents on the new Stingray Concept.

Well, we’re sad to see Lee go seeing as he helped resurrect one of the most iconic muscle cars in American history.
