Lot #1580.1 - A futuristic racer, this design fulfills the brief forward looking design from the GM advanced design studio set high in the Hollywood Hills. The entire senior design team at GM Hollywood contributed to this stunning race vehicle. Indeed, this design was featured on the silver screen in a Paramount Pictures Production, "Numbers", bringing the notion of gravity racing as a sport to a large multi national audience. Side to side steering levers allow a very low bonnet with the driver afforded a clear and uninterrupted view of the track ahead, a must for the confidence of the driver where this racer has seen speeds approximating 70 miles per hour. The interesting nose design is by careful consideration of the advantage gained when started by dropping plank a top the starting ramp. The greater effective height up the ramp meant for a longer period for gravity to accelerate the vehicle to it's winning conclusion and fastest elapsed time at the Irvine event.
