Chevy scorches towards Paris
6 September 2006

Chevrolet has stuck more to the spirit of WTCC regulations than the letter with this Ultra ‘racecar study’. These renderings give an idea of Chevy’s concept, which was developed by a global GM team and to be shown at Paris in three weeks’ time. The Ultra has a 187bhp 1.9-litre engine - so it will probably be a little slower than your average WTCC car, but it looks pretty quick. Also at the Paris show will be Chevrolet’s new Epica (link) saloon with a new diesel powerplant. The 2.0-litre common-rail unit has 147bhp and a sizeable 252lb ft of torque. That makes for 0-62mph in 9.7seconds with combined cycle economy of 46mpg.Come back to Autocar.co.uk for more details later in the month.
