Chevrolet introduced the concept of Chaparral 2X laser engine (8 photos)
Chevrolet introduces a new concept racing car, capable to accelerate to 100 mph in just half a second. While this concept, but the authors of the project promises that the car will be fully operational in the coming years. The company, together with Chevrolet Chaparral Racing has developed a new concept racing car, which in the future will be able to bring the race track to the next level. The project car was named Chaparral 2X. Currently it exists only in the conceptual form. This means that no working prototype – no. The reason for that is very simple. The new car does not correspond to the current level of technology development. Designers awarded Chaparral 2X innovative laser engine, which today exists only in theory. Not even a “paper” version of this device on the drawing board. It is assumed that the principle of the laser engine is based on the laser gun, which in turn will generate impulses and as a consequence of the shock waves cause cravings. This engine should (again, in theory) to ensure acceleration to 100 km \ h in just 1.5 seconds. The maximum speed should be around 400 km \ h. As for the power of the engine, its rate should be held at the level of 900 hp should also mention the spectacular aerodynamic design Chaparral 2X, which by today’s standards can be easily dubbed “futuristic”. The machine also has a relatively small size, even for a racing car. Whether there will be in the coming years, something like that on the track is uncertain, but certainly exactly in the framework of partnership programs, Chaparral 2X will move as a “working” sample of a few of racing video games. It should be noted that the conceptual virtual reality machines appear for 4-6 years faster than their traditional counterparts.
