Designed to be the ultimate pro-touring car, the Corpala is a completely custom concept. The goal was to completely modernize the mechanics of the car, while retaining as much of is original "character" as possible. The chassis utilizes the entire drivetrain and suspension system from a C6 Corvette, while retaining a shape similar to the original Impala chassis. By avoiding a complicated tube chassis and cage the build team kept the chassis unobtrusive, this gives the exterior an OEM feel
