The Monte Carlo Concept Car is based off of the Monte Carlo Intimidator, a show car by Chevrolet. Mattel dropped the Intimidator name in early 1999 most likely due to licensing issues. The name can be seen on the back of the blister card on some of the early 1999 First Editions. The "Intimidator" name was to honor Chevrolet's most popular NASCAR driver of all time, Dale Earnhardt. This concept car eventually paved the way for the 6th generation of the Monte Carlo in Chevrolet's line up from 2000-2007.
The Monte Carlo Concept Car has come out in the following versions:
