The Chevrolet Spark RS (called as Beat in India) high performance ‘muscle hatch’ is all set to be showcased at the American tuning festival SEMA 2015 which will open its doors on November 3. Based on the latest gen model which is not likely to reach India (next gen Beat for India is expected to be based on the emerging market-spec Amber platform), the Spark RS isn’t like to be just a visually enhanced hatchback.
Considering that SEMA has witnessed several insane tuning jobs in its previous editions, we expect GM not to leave the Spark’s 98 PS 1.4-litre petrol engine untouched. We would know more about what’s lurking under the hood when the show commences.
The concept car was jointly developed by GM’s North American and South Korean design teams. If the public opinion is widely positive, we could see a production model as well.
Visual enhancements include a busy looking bumper with glossy black foglight enclosures, sharp chin air splitter, LED infused projector headlamps, 17-inch Corvette inspired alloy wheels, eccentric black racing stripe, roof-mounted spoiler and a black diffuser with interesting exhaust tip. The interior has not been revealed.
Todd Parker, director of design, Global Chevrolet said:
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. It advances the RS heritage and interprets it in an entirely new way.
