Chaparral 2 in White (1:18 scale)
- The 1965 Chaparral 2, designed & driven by Jim Hall, was a milestone in racing car development. It was the first pure racing car to feature a fibreglass composite chassis & the first with a semi-automatic transmission
- the clutch had been replaced with a 3-stage torque converter developed in secret by GM engineers. The distinctive modular wheels introduced the cross-spoke design which has been widely imitated up to the present day. The Chaparral 2 dominated US sports car racing in 1965, winning eight out of nine USRRC races held that year.
