For the past 52 years, Jim Hall and Hap Sharp, founders of Chaparral Cars, have been shaking up the industry’s idea of what it means to be a race car. Now, the innovative engineers at Chaparral have created a new concept with the help of Chevrolet’s terrific performance. The new Chaparral Vision Gran Turismo Concept, which is the newest addition to the Vision Gran Turismo lineup, will once again push the boundaries of power, just like the Chaparral Cars before it.
“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 car is part of the 15th anniversary celebration of the Gran Turismo PlayStation racing game. Set to debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, this concept gives fans and gamers alike a taste of what the future of automotive design will look like.
