Chevrolet's Red Line Series concept vehicles that concentrate on the lifestyle and personalisation possibilities of the brand's cars showcased the Spark RS concept that will make its debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, starting 3 November.
The Spark RS concept is essentially a rugged version of the 2016 Spark. For the uninitiated, the Beat in India is sold as Spark in rest of the world. The concept applies the sporty RS treatment such as carbon-fiber front splitter, rocker extensions and a carbon-fiber rear-lower extension. The face of the car gets a redesigned bumper that adds muscle with protruding add-ons. The headlamp cluster gets smoke treatment and comes with daytime running lamps.
A rear spoiler and single exhaust with the touch of chrome extends the sportiness of the car at the rear. The shoulder lines are more prominent in both sides of the car. The concept is equipped with 17-inch wheels inspired from the Corvette Z07, while a lowered suspension gives the car an aggressive stance. The exterior is finished in Dark Liquid Switchblade Silver, with custom graphic accents.
The Spark RS concept is the result of collaboration between Chevrolet's design studios in North America and Korea. Chevrolet will see the feedback from public at the show, and based on that the American car maker will think of possible production.
"Every Chevrolet has the DNA of the Corvette and the Spark RS concept shows how the brand's smallest car can deliver big on personalization," said Todd Parker, director of design, Global Chevrolet. "It advances the RS heritage and interprets it in an entirely new way," he added.
