In 1984, the Chevrolet Corvette Ramarro was marked by highly innovative architecture; Bertone made significant changes on the chassis (the engine radiator was moved to the rear, and the weight distribution conditioned the avant-garde conception of the vehicle on both styling and constructions points of view; the doors, for example, opened by sliding forwards while the roof was devised with a transparent monolithic dome which hid the pillars. The Ramarro project, which aroused considerable interest in 1984 among supercar enthusiasts, sent a sensational message to manufacturers of front engined automobiles. Displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Expo in 1984, the Ramarro won the following year the Car Design Award, judged by a jury composed of the most important specialised American and European magazines.
