Chevrolet Vega Cosworth
After the debacle of the Chevrolet Corvair in the ’60s, the company was reluctant to enter the compact market again. Since the segment grew, Chevy didn’t have a choice. So, a new Chevrolet Vega was introduced as a 1971 model. The Vega was a compact, modernly-styled model with three basic body styles. There was a two-door coupe, two-door sedan, and a more practical three-door wagon. The front end resembled closely to the design of the 1971 Camaro with a similar grille, headlights, and bumper (via Hagerty).
In 1975, Chevrolet introduced the very interesting but unsuccessful Vega Cosworth model, featuring a high-revving 2.0-liter four-cylinder twin-cam motor with 110 HP. Although it wasn’t particularly fast or strong, the Vega Cosworth was good-looking. With an attractive black and gold paint job and unique wheels. The model was produced in cooperation with British engine engineering company Cosworth known for their Formula One engine.
