2005 GENERAL MOTORS GRAVITY RACER
*Includes Buyer Commission
Lot #1586.1 - Continuing the futuristic and visionary approach of their winning 2004 racer, this design could sit equally at home on many a film set. Not surprising then the design studio is set high in the Hollywood Hills.
Another racer that displays the merits of a composite body on alloy tubular chassis, this design has at its heart a 4 wheel steering system controlled by levers right and left. The styling has a unique stature amongst it's rivals given it's almost perfect symmetry front to back, with a tall yet slender profiling and covered wheel design. The symmetry and 4- wheel steering gave rise to another spectacular piece of driving by Brit designer Nicky Smart. When he entered the final turn of the Jack's Peak Drive race in 2005, he managed to control a 4-wheel slide into a J turn with the steering levers, crossing the finishing line backwards, much to the appreciation and great applause of the crowd.
