1990 Chevrolet Corvette Nivola by Bertone

Bertone interpreted the sophisticated mechanical unit of the ZR-1 in a European key. Bertone designed a special chassis to make a sporty "boat" with a mid-engine. This mechanical layout allowed it to exploit all the engine's power when accelerating and warrant perfect road-holding on bends. Nivola is after the famous driver, Tazio Nuvolari, nicknamed "Nivola," much admired by Bertone, who usually drove his cars dressed in yellow. The Nivola may be considered Bertone's homage to the American sports car: the Chevrolet Corvette.
