Bertone Corvette Ramarro Concept 1984
Carrozzeria Bertone has on several occasion presented design concept on American vehicles. The Corvette Ramarro Concept was introduced at the Los Angeles Motor Show in 1984. The project was based on the Corvette ZR1.
The design represents an Italian interpretation of General Motors successful sports car. The Shape is more linear and simple. The front end has been lowered by placing the radiator at the rear in a highly ventilated zone of the car. A thermostatic controlled opening lid is arranged to guarantee adequate cooling at different speed. This new arrangement has allowed an overall length 33 cm shorter than the original Corvette ZR1.
The door concept is operating in two movements, one outward movement being followed by forward sliding of the elements. This allow optimal access especially in crowded parking area. The mechanical solution is far more complex than the conventional doors of the Corvette ZR1.
The interior include a one piece leather covered bench.
The name Ramarro comes from the Green Lezard special color.
Dimensions: Length 415 cm (Corvette ZR1 448 cm) , Width 192 cm (Corvette ZR1 180 cm), Height 119 cm ( Corvette ZR1 118 cm)
