PostSubject: Chaparral Cars revived for Vision GT   Sat Nov 15, 2014 9:53 am

General Motors has announced that they're reviving the legendary Chaparral Cars name for their Chevrolet Vision GT concept car, and it will be unveiled on the 19th of this month and released during the holidays.

I will add more as the car is unveiled.
Here's the teaser:


The 2X is now unveiled:


The details of how it's operated are trippy as heck, so here's a quote right from an article:

AutoBlog wrote:
Reinforcing the forward-looking feel, the Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo concept uses a 671-kilowatt laser propelled by lithium-ion batteries and an air-powered generator to make up to 900 brake horsepower of thrust. This allows the concept to achieve a speed of 240 miles per hour, while sprinting to 60 mph in 1.5 seconds in the video game.

Furthering the fantasy element, the driver is also supposed to lay in a face-down prone position with arms and legs splayed out toward the 17-inch wheels, and the instruments are projected onto the driver's helmet visor.

"Think of it as adapting a wing suit to a racing car, where the driver's movements control certain aspects of the aero package," Frank Saucedo, who oversaw the team that worked on the concept, said in a statement.

Official Chevy video:


OH MY GOD

I think it looks cool, but hey. Chaparrals were always function over form.

Each to their own sort of thing, it is definitely a Marmite car. But where it is visually, I used to design better cars when I was 11.

It gives me a Ridge Racer 7 feel.


Rumors are floating around that this is a rival to the Red Bull x2014 Standard.

So when the 2X releases, I'll be making a video of it, and then a friend and I will collaborate on a 2X vs Red Bull video which will be posted here.

Man that thing is cool the acceleration is crazy. But you can tell the Red Bull X201X cars are still quicker with the ground effect fans.

You can still get it from the seasonal. The 2X seasonal expires on the 14th of next month.

I'm going to race it against an x2014 non-fan car tomorrow to see what happens, so we'll see about that.
