Description

Lot #103 - The car was driven by legendary Chevrolet General Manager Jim Perkins. Chevrolet's popular Baretta paced the Indy 500 that their engine won with Arie Luyendyk driving. This was the first and only Chevy "Concept" car ever selected to pace the 500. In this case the Beretta's 3.1 liter V6 engine required some performance enhancements. Its displacement was increased to 3.4 liters and its horsepower was increased 60%-From 135 to 225. Chevy produced a total of 4,500 special-edition Beretta coupes to commemorate the event. 1,500 were made available in the brilliant yellow of the actual pace car, and 3,000 were offered in a distinctive turquoise color. No Beretta convertibles were ever produced for public sale. THIS IS A MODIFIED VEHICLE.
