Chevy Sonic turned into a fierce rally carDecember 16, 2018
After under the hood of an American subcompact car turned out to be a powerful V8, the Chevrolet Sonic can easily participate in races and rally races. Over the 5-door hatchback worked guys from the team PMR Motorsports.
Over the years, a large number of very different cars took part in rally races, some of which were very unexpected for this type of racing. In particular, the American urban kid Chevrolet Sonic – no one expected to see him in the rally. But no, as they say, there would be a desire.
First of all, enthusiasts from the team PMR Motorsports, which consists of the famous racer Pat Moreau, installed a powerful V-shaped engine with 8 cylinders under the hood.
Then, a significantly modified Chevrolet Sonic was unveiled at the Performance Racing Industry Show last week. Unfortunately, the guys from PMR Motorsports are currently carefully hiding information about their project. However, thanks to insiders, we know that the car received an all-wheel drive system, as well as a powerful gasoline engine Chevrolet LS3.
I want to note that we are talking about one of the best Chevrolet production engines. It was this engine that was under the hood of Corvette and Camaro sports models. For a little more than $ 8,000, you will get a power of 430 hp and 576 Nm of torque.
In addition to the engine, the Chevrolet Sonic received a wide body kit, reduced weight, as well as a power frame. The PMR Motorsports team plans to perform on this car in the series of the American Rally Association.
Well, not so long ago, we managed to find out that Chevrolet will provide the McLaren team with the engine for Indy 500 racing.
