1970 Pontiac Pegasus Concept

Designed under the direction of William L. Mitchell, GM Design Vice President, the Pegasus was built as a "design concept" study from a production 1970 Pontiac Firebird. The front end, grille and fender vents were inspired by Ferrari designs. Enzo Ferrari contributed a 365 GTB/4 V12 engine to the project. The engine was mated to a Ferrari 5-speed transmission and a GM posi-traction rear axle.

The 4-wheel disc brakes were from a Corvette, the wire wheels were from Borrani and the exhaust system, mufflers and instrument panel gauges were from Ferrari.

On the right car, they are awesome! Not all cars can carry the look though. They are a mother to keep clean too.

Chief Designers were able to write their own corporate prescriptions and call it "concept development" or "an engineering study" back in those days. However, you are right Pro!

Very cool car!

Fun fact, the Fiero was originally going to be called the Pegasus which is why the Fiero badge has Pegasus on it.
