1956 Chevrolet SR-2 Concept

The 1956 Chevrolet SR-2 concept was a stunning race car Chevrolet developed to compete in sports car racing. It was a collaboration between Chevrolet and racing legend Zora Arkus-Duntov, who was instrumental in developing the Corvette and other high-performance Chevrolet vehicles.

The SR-2 was based on the Corvette, but it featured a range of enhancements designed to improve its performance and speed. Its aerodynamic body was made of lightweight fiberglass, featuring a distinctive low-slung design that helped reduce wind resistance and improve handling.

Under the hood, the SR-2 was powered by a high-performance V8 engine producing over 300 horsepower. The car also featured a range of innovative features, such as a four-speed manual transmission, heavy-duty suspension, and powerful brakes, which made it a formidable competitor on the race track.
