Chevrolet Chaparral presents laser powered Gran Turismo
|   Monday, December 08, 2014
Chevrolet finally decided to declare officially that there will be a 2X Vision concept coming soon which is named as Gran Turismo. This model will give more emphasis on fantasy and giving it a completely new and unique look.

Since this idea is based on Chaparral concept hence this name will be there as well. This concept is based on a laser which is similar to envisioned in many spacecrafts. It has a laser of 671 kW power, mounted centrally in the car.
It beam fires light to shroud which focuses all the energy creating shockwaves giving vehicle the thrust it needs to move forward.

They are also planning to add a generator powered by air, but its engineering has been kept secret till yet but as far as its function is decided, it helps in conjunction of the laser. It has a lighter body with Chaparral 2X claiming it to provide 386 km/hour speed at the maximum and can reach to 60 mph from its standing position within just a time frame of 15 seconds.

Another reason to name it Chaparral is because of reusing its cockpit. They didn't opt for the conventional design which has upright driver seats. In Chaparral, driver seat lies facing down to street ahead having the legs and arms splayed towards below. Driver does various movements to adjust various aerodynamic movements of the car which helps to eliminate the large wing requirements. So they used a key structural change in the car by making the display of driver's helmet directly.

Chaparral word has been derived from the racing team of Chaparral cars who is responsible as measure part to build Chevrolet during 1960s. This team pioneered monocoque construction, active aerodynamics, auto transmission and light weighted alloy drive trains in racing vehicles.

Gran Turismo has also introduced few other concept based cars within its franchise, but this one is unlike them. Chevrolet's this model has the potential and power to be called unique. Though the practicality has not yet been working on running gear but it debuted in the Auto show of Los Angeles last week.

Chaparral has shown its performance a lot before this new concept. But it has brought new and out of world concept for the Gran Turismo. There are few imaginary photos leaked of this model but in real it will look even better. The design has been inspirited from the flying suit which arms are outstretched and head is down. The driver's facedown seat is projected with instruments onto a single visor.

However the power train provided in the 2X is full of fancy and features as if a video game environment. It imagines the lithium ion batteries propel a laser and it will generate 900 hp through the power of air. As per plan it will be enough to make a top most speed of 240 miles in an hour and can hit 60 miles per single hour in 1.5 seconds. Chevrolet is concentrating a lot on this concept and may come with good news very soon.
