Chevrolet is celebrating its centenary with this striking new all-wheel-drive hybrid sports car concept, which will make its official debut at the Seoul auto show. The Chevrolet Miray, unveiled by General Motors Korea, is an open-top sports car with heavily sculpted carbon fiber bodywork inspired by some of Chevy's classic models, including 1963's Monza SS and the Corvair Super Spyder from the previous year.
GM is heavily involved in South Korea and is the third largest manufacturer in the country. It has design, engineering and manufacturing operations in the country and this two-seat concept is a product of these facilities.
The hybrid system consists of mid-mounted 1.5-liter turbocharged engine mated to a dual-clutch gearbox powering the rear wheels and twin 20hp electric motors with a 1.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack powering the front wheels.
The electric motors are capable of powering the Miray – meaning "future" in Korean – alone, although range or performance figures haven't been confirmed.
