Engine & Transmission:
Chevy's internal designation of the Mako Shark concept car was XP-755.
The body shape and color scheme were based on a Mako shark that GM Chief of Styling Bill Mitchell caught while deep sea fishing. The design was created by Larry Shinoda.
The Mako Shark and the related XP-720 concept were the basis for the legendary C2 line of Corvettes from 1963-1967.
A second Mako Shark concept was built on the same chassis in coupe form in 1965, then renamed the Manta Ray. This car featured a 427 cubic inch big block V8
The Mako Shark is currently displayed at the GM Heritage Center.
