1986 Chevrolet Corvette Indy Concept news, pictures, specifications, and information

Chevrolet constructed the Indy Concept in 1985 and showed it at the 1986 Detroit Auto Show. The inoperative show car was powered by a mid-engined twin-turbo 2.6 liter V8 engine designed by Lotus Engineering. Two additional fully road worthy prototypes followed. The Corvette Indy concept was created to showcase Chevrolet's advanced automotive technology and featured 4-wheel drive, 4-wheel steering, rear view camera with in-dash view screen and drive by wire system. The concept was expected to reach a top speed of 180 mph.

1961 Targa Florio: Porsche Dominance, Ferrari Victorious
The first race held on the island of Sicily that included an automobile would take place between the car, a bicycle and a horse. Although the gentleman on the bicycle would drop out rather early due to leg cramps constantly going up and down on the mountainous roads, the battle between the de Dion motor tricycle and the horse would be an intriguing one.
