Gilles Ceron built his Chevy Monza race car at Vintage Garage in Saint-Pryvé-Saint-Mesmin, France. The car is an homage to the Monza DeKon chassis 1006 race car that competed in the 1976 24 Hours of Le Mans. Gilles’ Monza weighs 2,400 lbs thanks to a tubular chassis and is powered by fuel-injected 5.7 L Chevy V8 mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The V8 features a dry sump system and producing close to 800 horsepower. Vintage Garage states the car has seen 200 mph down the Mulsanne Straight.

  1. Nice car,nice stickers,even copied the Russian flag paint scheme,but the wing is inaccurate-would have been illegal for 1976 LeMans………..

    1. Právě, že pro Le Mans bylo tohle křídlo povolené, měla ho i originální DeKon Monza v1976 v Le Mans. Nevím kde vidíte odkaz na ruskou vlajku, v r. 1976 existoval sovětský svaz a vlajku měl červenou… Je to odkaz na americkou vlajku a sériově vyráběné chevy Monza mirage které se prodávaly jen v téhle barevné kombinaci.
