GM reveals single-seat Chevy Speedster as newest CERV prototype

GM reveals single-seat Chevy Speedster as newest CERV prototype

April 4, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

In the official Instagram account of GM Design, a series of more interesting renderings has appeared.

The sketches show a single-seat speedster with a Bow Tie badge, which is very similar to the atmospheric racing Chevrolet. This highly talented visualization was created by Brian Geisler, the chief designer in charge of interiors for the American auto giant’s models. This project dates back to 2017.

The fact that we have a road car in front of us raises great doubts: for example, it does not have headlights. On the sides of the conceptually speedster and the front fender flaunts the CERV 5 lettering. The abbreviation CERV stands for Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle. This is a series of experimental cars built according to the racing canons.

The last official CERV was released in the 90s and bore the predictable name CERV IV. The CERV IV-B served as a test bed for the 5th generation Chevy Corvette in 1997. Such a Chevrolet received a 5.7-liter LT1 V8 engine.

Access to public roads for this sports car was closed, but it was still put up for auction and sold very profitably.

The new owner paid 34 thousand dollars for it. CERV 5 shown on the renders does not carry the official status. However, this may change in the future.

Earlier, AutoTimesNews said that the Italian company Pagani announced a track version of the Huayra hypercar. The letter “R” will appear in the name of such a modification.
