    Made in Brazil and quite popular there, it was based on the European Opel Kadett and had a 1.6 litre engine.

    I had one of these! My first and only rwd car :-( They are fun despite the low power... Interesting fact is that it was sold almost everywhere in the world as Chevy, Opel, Vauxhall, Holden, Isuzu... Since the Kadett C

    If they put this car and the VW Santana they should consider putting a swap with the VW Santana engine, since this is a common engine swap in Brazil (Chevette with VW Santana engine, because the VW Santana was 2.0 and the Chevette was 1.6)
    BTW, some specs for the car:
    Layout: FR
    Engine: Inline-4, 1.6-liter, OHC with carburetor
    Power: 78 hp@5200 rpm (Gasoline), 81 hp@5200 rpm (Ethanol)
    Torque: 12,6 kgfm@3200 rpm (Gasoline), 12,9 kgfm@3200 rpm (Ethanol)
    Top Speed: 160 km/h
    Acceleration: 13,8 sec (Ethanol), 14,15 sec (Gasoline)
    Transmission: 5-speed manual
    Being a low powered FR car, that should be a good choice for novice drifters...
    PS: Please bring a rivalry event between the Chevette and the Beetle
