1966 Chaparral 2E

Chaparral 2E is arguably the most significant Chaparral design. It introduced driver controlled aerodynamic downforce tot he world. Its large high mounted wing represented a dramatic change in the world of automobile racing. From that time forward, racing cars became aerodynamic ground vehicles. The Chaparral 2E was fast everywhere it raced in the 1966 Can-Am series, and once teething troubles were solved, Phil Hill and Jim Hall finished a memorable one-two at Laguna Seca.
