Chevrolet unveils Cruze-engined Spark for use as safety car in WTCC |

Mercedes-Benz continued its partnership with the Formula 1 competition at the beginning of the year by releasing the SLS AMG safety car. For the WTCC, where its Cruze model is making a good impression during the current season, Chevrolet wanted something a bit more special.

As such, Chevy has just unveiled a very special Spark model, that will be employed in the racing competition as a safety car. Before you laugh, bear in mind that this Spark uses the same 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine that will be available for the US-spec Cruze. Capable of 140 HP, this Spark safety car will certainly be more than up for the challenge.

The first appearance of the tiny model will be at the Zolder race, in Belgium, between June 19 and 20.

Until then, those who tuned in to the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race were also able to catch a few glimpses, as the Spark safety car was showcased alongside the Cruze WTCC racer and the Corvette C6.R GT2 models.
