litre 5 cylinder
The 2002 Chevrolet Belair concept was a retro design echoing
the iconic '57 Chevy Bel Air. However underneath the old-school
bodywork was a modern drivetrain, and all the luxuries
and options consumers have come to expect.
The Chevrolet Bel Air concept had an all-new, inline 5
cylinder engine with a 'turbo boost' button on the steering wheel. When pushed it increased horsepower by adjusting
the timing and fuel calibration. Like the original the
Bel Air concept was rear-wheel-drive.
To provide the appropriate structure for a large convertible,
the Bel Air concept uses a 21st century interpretation
of body-on-frame construction, employing the same hydroforming
technology used in the frame rails of the Corvette and
GMs new midsize sport-utility vehicles.
