The winning submissions were selected by sheer number of “likes” from GrabCAD community – assuming they followed all design guidelines set in challenge details.

About the contest

500Group and GrabCAD developed the challenge to create a supercar body for a chassis that is currently undergoing testing in the UK’s “F1 belt.”

Developed under a General Motors special-projects supply agreement, the car chassis incorporates all GM performance parts and feature the GM V8 line of E-Rod LS3, LS7 and mighty 638hp supercharged LS9 engines. The car is scheduled for a 2013 launch.
