Chevrolet Chaparral 2X VGT Concept Transmits the Spirit of Innovation
There is something marvelous, something wondrous, something breathtaking and mind-blowing about 2014 Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo (VGT) concept. It looks like a car from a world far beyond ready to attack and conquer our own. This fighty little devil represents an exclusive development for all the gamers and fans of the PlayStation® 3 racing game, Gran Turismo® 6.
Chevrolet wanted this car to feel special. And it succeeded. But if u strip that away, there is a mid-mounted 671-kW laser beamed-energy propulsion system that releases beams of light that focus in a shroud. They produce shock waves that generate enormous thrust in the lightweight race car.
Thanks to the integrated laser and the pack of lithium-ion batteries and an air-powered generator which boosts 900 hp, the concept car will be capable of a 240-mph top speed in the video game, with 0-60 acceleration capability of just 1.5 seconds.
Yet, unlike other GT projects, this Chevy is actually real and it looks even more monstrous than in any pictures. It can be seen and touched at the 2014 LA Auto Show. The car is boundary-pushing, with innovative design and flare for power. Chevrolet Chaparral 2X VGT is seen as a quintessential design icon that can become the next-generation driving machine. It offers an explosion of character, ambitious vision and futuristic glare.
"The Chaparral 2X VGT is a vision of how advanced technology may shape the look and driving experience of racing," explains Chevrolet. "Chaparral's race cars and methods were seen as outlandish four decades ago. The 2X VGT concept might just be a harbinger of motorsports in the next four decades."
Have a look through the pics. What do you think? Could this be the best Vision GT concept so far?
