Without a doubt, the Chevrolet Corvette takes you back to the colorful "Rock & Roll" times of the 1950s! In 1958 it was equipped with a 6,400 cc V8 engine fed by a large Edelbrock carburettor and Edelbrock manifold, sending power to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual gearbox. The engine made around 250bhp at 4,800rpm, although with the top specification carburettors it could easily reach 270bhp. A striking detail was its rev counter set at 8,000 rpm.
At the body level, which was made of GRP plastic, it already mounted the four front headlights, keeping its rear part beautifully curved, and it even had air conditioning. The 1950s Chevrolet Corvette is the only American sports car with European qualities. Its weight was relatively light, 1470 kg, which allowed it to reach a top speed of 200 km/h.
