Chevrolet Sonic B-Spec Concept previewed

The North American based automaker Chevrolet has recently unveiled the Sonic B-Spec Concept race car which is coming with some interesting features.

The Chevrolet Sonic B-Spec Concept race car has been made in order to preview a competition kit developed for racers who want to transform their regular Sonic in to a race car. According to the car manufacturer, the kit will include an adjustable front stabilizer bar, a suspension system, some tweaks to the chassis, an inlet air restrictor, a carbon fiber racing seat, a five-point safety harness, a roll cage, a fire extinguisher, a center catch net, window safety net, quick-release steering wheel and more.

“Sonic B-Spec concept demonstrates the car’s capabilities in the increasingly popular B-Spec subcompact classes in several racing series. Sonic’s great balance of power and responsive handling make it a natural on the track – and a formidable competitor”, said the General Motors U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports, Jim Campbell.

The production intended kit for the Chevrolet Sonic is also getting a Luxor Blue paint with Monaco Blue graphics and 15×7-inch wheels wrapped in racing tires. The standard 1.8 liter engine has been fitted with an air restrictor and it’s mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The kit is expected to begin its sales in the first quarter of 2013 through Chevrolet Performance retailers.
