The North American based automotive giant General Motors has recently announced that the Chevrolet Impala will be replaced in NASCAR in 2013.

After being officially presented back in 2007 and with 70 wins, the Chevrolet Impala NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will get a replacement and according to the car manufacturer, the model won’t be a Malibu or Cruze and both the production version and the race version will make their debut in the following year.

“We are keeping the wraps on the new car for now and will continue to prepare for next season by testing camouflaged vehicles. We know that Chevrolet fans are eager to see the new race car and we hope that the prospect of being able to own one just like it will make the wait a little more bearable”, said the vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports for Chevrolet.

The automaker is saying that the Chevrolet Impala in both race and production version will share the same platform with the Cadillac XTS, but details on the model are currently limited. More official “words” on the new Chevrolet Impala will be announced close to the model’s debut in showrooms and on the track.
