Still moving upstream with the Bertone concepts, the Concept Weekend continues. And like the Aria and Delfino featured previously, the 1984 Chevrolet Ramarro here is again a Marc Deschamps work. Yes, that is a Corvette C4 underneath the bold slab of green bodywork, and as a transformation it’s comparable to the Aria’s development from a humble Mazda 323.
With the slanted C4 wheels on, the styling buck belies its Corvette roots. The X1/9 in the background is an interesting comparison.
The forward-sliding door mechanism is a bold feature on the Ramarro, which apparently is named after a “green lizard” in Italian.
And the interior is probably where said lizard ended up, as upholstery material. If the Delfino was all about techno cool, the Ramarro is stomach-churning in comparison. At least I would be green at the gills after a day in that cabin.
I have to say, that despite the Ramarro having bigger lungs than the Delfino, I do prefer that to the Chevy. And the Ramarro seems to have lost the C4 pop-up headlights, which merits a -1 in my book.
