We love the carspotting series for all the everyday cars we see, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t some unusual cars to be seen out and about. Vintage Las Vegas identifies the Corvette seen here in the Hacienda parking lot as the XP-700, but some of the details – such as the tunnelled headlamps – don’t look quite right for Bill Mitchell’s custom ‘Vette, so we’re guessing somebody simply took inspiration from the XP-700 for their own Corvette. What do you see here?
The technical name for the Chevrolet Corvette truck is the Chevrolet SSR. This vehicle was released in the mid 1990s and was designed as "retro" car to help the company rebrand itself somehow. In terms of exterior, the vehicle sports a custom bed and body. It is slightly taller than a standard sports car but not close to the height of a regular size pickup truck. The bed itself is quite a bit smaller and not capable of hauling much in terms of weight and size.
Inside of the vehicle, the SSR is outfitted with the C5 Corvette motor. This motor is a powerful alternative to the standard Chevrolet motor and gives the Corvette truck the same horsepower and torque capabilities as the Corvette sports car. The vehicle sports a large size V6 engine which is capable of over 300 horsepower at a standard driving.
