AutoArt / Millennium Edition / 1957 Chevrolet Corvette SS / 1:18th Scale
In 1957 the Corvette SS was developed to be the Corvette race car that would beat the best of the European sports cars; the Ferraris and Maseratis. It took Zora Arkus-Duntov only 6 months to develop this purpose built racer. The SS engine developed 307 hp at 6,400 rpm from its 283 ci iron-block. The aerodynamic drag of the SS was similar to that of the famous D Jaguar and its from weighted only 180 pounds and was patterned after the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. The instrument panel was useful and elegant. A clock was included which proved useful in the endurance races. The car was a spectacular hit at Sebring in 1957. The SS legend has grown ever since!
