Closer Look At The Aerovette

The Chevrolet Aerovette (originally designated Experimental Project XP-882) was developed in the late 1960’s under the watchful eyes and mind of Zora Arkus-Duntov. Unlike the XP-819, which ultimately proved to have too much rear weight bias, Duntov focused on developing the Aerovette as a mid-engine platform, utilizing a transverse mounting configuration of the car’s V8 engine.
