1970 Chevrolet Corvette XP-882 Concept

XP-882 was one of three protoype Corvettes built in a very short period of time. This car was the first of these three Corvettes, all of which featured a mid-engine design. Shortly after XP-882 , the second mid-engined protype was finished, the XP-895 Areovette. It was the Aerovette that made it to the New York Autoshow and was seriously considered for production.

Not much information is known on XP-882. It was on the cover of Road & Track in January of 1971. Both XP-882 and XP-895 were ordered to be destoryed by GM headquarters. XP-895 survived the order and exists to this day, but the fate of XP-882 is unknown.
