Believe it or not,that verison might not be rice. Chevy Chevettes were sold in the U.K. as the Vauxhall Chevette. There was a trim version of it called the HS equipped with a 2.3 liter slant 4 cyl. engine,a 5-spd close ratio manual and uprated brakes and suspension. It proved to be very fast and successful in rally tournaments.

The rest of the car may not be rice but those lower skirting is a bit much. Some nice rally based road cars came out during that era. To bad more wouldn't come out nowadays. Just think, an AWD Focus or Fiesta for the dirt.
