Chevrolet Shows Off Chaparral Vision Gran Turismo Concept
When you think of fast racecars, it’s likely that your first thought is Chaparral Cars. Founded in 1962 by racers Jim Hall and Hap Sharp, Chaparral has become the icon for innovative aerodynamic and aerospace technology, something that wouldn’t have happened without help from Chevrolet. In honor of this decades-long partnership, Chevrolet has recently released the Chaparral Vision Gran Turismo Concept for the Vision Gran Turismo project.
“Jim Hall and Chaparral blended the art of racing with science in an unprecedented way, changing the sport forever and inspiring a new generation to experiment with aerodynamics and unconventional materials,” said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president for Global Product Development, Purchasing, and Supply Chain. “His race cars were four-wheeled physics projects that proved innovation—and a strong Chevy race engine—could drive you to the winner’s circle.”
This new concept racecar will help celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo video game, which is a racing game created for PlayStation. It debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show, showing off a sleek, sexy design that video game players will enjoy taking out on the road.
