Spanning a single generation over a majority of the 1980s, the Chevy Celebrity was the successor to the fourth-generation Chevy Malibu, and was positioned as a midsize vehicle. Today, we’re taking a closer look at this well-kept 1988 Chevy Celebrity Eurosport coupe that’s recently been listed for sale online.
Posted for sale on cars.com, this 1988 Celebrity appears to be in fantastic shape, with less than 43,000 miles on the odometer. According to a Carfax report, this 80s Bow Tie coupe features a clean title, and has never been damaged or been involved in an accident.
It’s worth noting that the Celebrity was offered in sedan, coupe and wagon variants.
As a Eurosport trim level, this Celebrity has a few cosmetic and performance upgrades as compared to the base trim. Originally introduced in 1984 as an option package, Eurosport models are distinguished by black window trim and red elements. Under the hood lies the naturally aspirated 2.8L V6 LB6 gasoline engine, which was rated at 125 horsepower and 160 pound-feet of torque when new.
Further Eurosport features include heavy-duty F41 suspension, a black steering wheel, and 14-inch Sport Rally wheels (the wheels later became an option for all Celebrity sedans and wagons).
As for the interior, the Celebrity Eurosport received model-specific red emblems on the door panels and dashboard.
Notably, General Motors later revealed the Celebrity Eurosport VR limited edition package, which itself was based on the 1986 Chevy Eurosport RS concept car. Converted out-of-house, these special-edition Celebrity units were fitted with ground effects, body decals, a blacked-out grille, and aluminum wheels. Production was limited to the 1987 and 1988 model years, while only red, silver, black and white paint colors were offered.
