In 1962, Arkus-Duntov conceptualized a line of Corvettes that would be constructed entirely for racing, complete with a mid-engine layout, a monocoque chassis and a fuel-injected, aluminum alloy V-8 engine. The prototype came to be known as the Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle II, or CERV II.....................................

The stunning aerodynamic body was designed by Larry Shinoda and Tony Lapine. An alloy 377-cu.in. V-8 with Hilborn fuel injection (estimated to produce around 500 horsepower) was fitted to a unique all-wheel-drive system that used dual torque converters and varied the front-to-rear power split based upon vehicle speed. With a weight goal of 1400 pounds, titanium was used where possible and magnesium wheels fitted. Girling disc brakes were used all-round, while the CERV II’s independent suspension featured coil springs and Armstrong shock absorbers.

If You Want A Weird Porsche 911 Then You Need The Sbarro Challenge III insuranceinstantonline.blogspot.com car insurance instant online quote
Quote:
In the 1980s, Sbarro built a car called the Challenge III. It was based on a 911 chassis and used Porsche's 3.3 liter engine. Its looks were more X-Wing than 911, and Sbarro only built ten of them. Now one of the ten can be yours.

Sounds like a lot of innovation, that might have made its way into production cars like the model at Porsche. I wonder who wouldn't listen in Detroit.

The X-1 was a roadster built to contest the Fall 1965 North American Pro Series, a forerunner of Can-Am, entered by the Bruce McLaren team and driven by Chris Amon. ...........................

The car went on to win the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1966. The X-1 was a one-off and was later ordered to be destroyed by customs officials.
