The Chris Holstrom Concepts 1967 Chevy Nova is a Tuned car produced by Chris Holstrom Concepts, albeit listed as a Gran Turismo vehicle. It first appears in Gran Turismo Sport, where it was introduced as part of Update 1.10.
The SEMA show is the world's largest annual custom car show hosted in Las Vegas, Nevada in the U.S. every autumn. And at SEMA every year, Gran Turismo picks out cars that fits the philosophy of Gran Turismo for the 'GT Awards'. The car that won 'Best of Show' in the Gran Turismo Awards of 2013 was this 1967 Chevrolet Nova.
The original Nova is a popular small car of Chevrolet built between the 1960s and the 70s. While there were high performance top grade models powered by V8 engines, at the base is a simple, functional car that was made as a daily driver for youths and families.
The shop which turned this modest family car into a crazy hotrod is Chris Holstrom Concepts, a specialty shop from Washington state. Chris Holstrom stripped the Nova down and started integrating high performance parts to create this Monster Nova.
Under the hood is the LS9, a supercharged 6.2L engine from the Corvette ZR1. Its output has been raised to 700 horsepower, and to withstand this incredible amount of power the rear suspension and differential housing utilise reinforced parts. BAER 6 pot calipers are used for the brakes, and the wheels with continental sport contact 5 tyres are forged rims with 18 inches in the front, 19 inches the rear.
There have been no aerodynamic accessories added to the exterior, maintaining the look of a stock model. This is an automotive miracle, fusing together the chic look of the 60s with modern day performance.
This car can be purchased in the Gran Turismo section of Brand Central for 300,000 Credits.
