The Chevy Chevelle nameplate captured the hearts and minds of enthusiasts over three generations, with production lasting between 1963 and 1977. Now, one digital artist is bringing it back with a modern take that includes a hyper-aggressive, ultra-wide body kit, as seen in the following rendering.
Recently posted to social media by London-based automotive designer @yasiddesign, the new widebody Chevrolet Chevelle is impressive, bringing all the old-school cues expected, plus a swath of contemporary enhancements that bless it with a unique aesthetic all its own.
This particular Chevy Chevelle rendering is based on the 1967 model year, and appears as though it was produced to provide inspiration for a real-life build.
The characteristic wide front fascia now sports new LED lighting elements fitted to the quad headlamps, while the grille was replaced with a new black insert. Lower in the fascia, we find carbon fiber added to the bumper and lower splitter, with yellow detailing along the outer edges of the aero treatment, complementing the yellow finish for the roll cage seen peeking out from behind the windshield.
The fenders are now massively flared, housing deep-dish wheels with a polished lip and black inner design. The wheels sit flush with the fenders, slamming the Chevy Chevelle right to the ground.
Moving back to the rear end, the wider fenders add even more to the Chevy Chevelle’s extended rear trunk and tail, giving the whole thing some impressive length, especially in conjunction with the extended front lip and splitter added to the mix.
Finished in a metallic green color, this widebody Chevy Chevelle actually has a slight yellow tint to it from certain angles, which plays nicely with detailing in the aero, tire sidewalls, and roll cage.
“I can’t help but drool over how sleek everything is especially dropped on those flushed wheels,” writes the artist.
