Chevrolet Cruze WTCC at Bologna Motor Show





 Chevrolet Cruze WTCC has been unveiled at the Bologna Motor Show. Wearing the racing livery on its first public appearance, Chevrolet Cruze WTCC will compete in the 2009 World Touring Car Championship (WTCC). The competition debut is scheduled in Curitiba, Brazil on 7-8 March 2009.


Chevrolet Cruze WTCC is still under testing and development with drivers Rob Huff, Nicola Larini and Alain Menu.





Eric Neve, Manager Motorsport at Chevrolet Europe, explains: “Bologna Motor Show is one of the most festive car events in Europe. We could not think of a better place to say goodbye to the Lacetti, which will be racing here (at the show race on 8 December) for the last time and give a warm welcome to new Cruze WTCC. The new race livery really encapsulates everything which Chevrolet is about: it is fresh, colorful, exciting, and out-of-the box.”



Phillip Zak, Director Exterior Design GM Europe, said: “As a racing fan myself, I was thrilled to be involved with this project. My main direction to the team was that we wanted a bold unique dynamic graphic that stands out on the race track as the bold dynamic Cruze will also stand out from competitors in the street. The team colors have been incorporated on as a continuation of our successful past. The super graphics are asymmetrical and unexpected, with a geometric execution, while we have accentuated the Chevrolet grille, which is the global face of Chevrolet. I am sure the Cruze WTCC will certainly help transmitting the dynamic spirit of Chevrolet!”
