More information came from on high this morning about Chevrolet's WTCC Concept. The vehicle, which Chevy's Executive Director of Design in Europe and Asia calls, "a Chevrolet muscle car reinvented for Europe," pulls design cues from its current touring car siblings and takes a good look into the future.

The compact, winged beast finds motivation from a 2-liter common rail diesel, producing upwards of 190 HP and sending power through the front wheels. The newly developed independent suspension is partnered with McPherson struts all-round, which should make this into one of the most capable bombers from Chevy in recent memory.

World Car Fans has all the details, along with a host of pictures and even an Ibiza-inspired C.G. video. Check it.

      These diesel engines are starting to put out some serious power, 2.0 and 190hp is not bad at all.

      Chevy if you build this I promise I will buy one. It is nothing short of outstanding, what a great looking ride. Please, Please, Please build it and make it get good mileage and have some zip.

      9. Sorry, andybee, but no Daewoo looks like this. It sure as Hell isn't a Cobalt.

      Mark my words, this is more GMDaewoo/Chevy Europe than the press release makes out. Come back to this thread in about 18 months when the Lacetti (Euro name)/Optra gets replaced....

      This is very European/RallyBoyRacer. I want a Cobalt sized coupe with a trunk, RWD, and the 260 HP Ecotech. It should have a clean non-retro design like this (http://www.autoweek.com/files/specials/2005_tokyo/gallerys/nissan_foria/images/01.jpg) or this (http://www.motoweb.pl/tapety/pictures/normal/lancia_fulvia_2003_3.jpg), and could maybe be called the Nova.

      I'm praying the next focus will look like this.

      This WTCC design is fabulous! There is a lot to desire and much beauty with this thing. It looks like it would compete directly with the Dodge Caliber... but the design of the WTCC is more refined and finished.

      To GM, Build it and I'll be there with my money on opening day!

      Bring it Chevy! Make me LOOK at an American car again.

      190hp isnt too bad coming from a diesel. This car will have monster tire roasting power, and we all know that its not too applicable, but it sure looks cool! :D

      shame its just a concept there is a huge market for a stuiuning looking car with 200+bhp ,this could be the replacement people are looking for
      but very few concepts ever reach the road ,like the 4x4 conecpt that gm desiged has ended up very very boring and called the captiva
      i have had to build my own car at huge expense to feed my hunger for a fast car ,
      the technology and engines allready exsist in gms list of engines why not use 1 of them ?

      i hope GM makes this car
      i will buy one

      This is exactly what the Chevy brand in the US needs...the Cobalt SS is attempting to get there, but build a car like this. But do it right, AWD for sure. 0-60 that will compete with the WRX and EVO. Perhaps two engine options. A base of 250 and a 300 HP option. Chevy almost takes you there with every car but then "cheaps out" in the end. Even if the car works out to be a halo nameplate that is ok...think Lotus Elise or Exige. INCREDIBLE handling, power, street or track...they get mad postive press. It will pull the entire brand up in terms of street cred to gain back some of the market share lost to the euro crowd.
