Brazilian Magazine Looking for Project Build Partners for 2011 SEMA Show


  Brazilian car builder Sigma and Fullpower magazine have teamed up to create a replica ’33 Chevy SEMA world car featuring SEMA-member products. The replica ’33 Chevy will be designed to be street driven as well as suited for the racetrack.

The influential Brazilian consumer magazine Fullpower is launching two vehicle projects and seeks partners for its builds. Products sought include (but are not limited to) wheels, tires, suspension, engine parts, instruments, upholstery, a steering wheel, a shift knob, pedal, lights, brakes, exhaust and air-intake systems.

 The two vehicles—a replica ’33 Chevy and a VW Gol—will be displayed at the 2011 SEMA Show, featured in Fullpower and will tour Brazil. This program is only open to SEMA Show exhibitors.

The VW Gol has been the best-selling car in Brazil for the past 30 years. The Gol, which derives its name from the Portuguese and Spanish word for "goal" is sold throughout Latin America. Koyoma Imports and Fullpower are sponsoring this vehicle, which will be built by Fullpower.
