This is one of just a few surviving units from those 25 cars delivered to the Engineering Department in Bowling Greene for an active suspension project developed in collaboration with Lotus. Incorporating technology from the Formula 1 Lotus team, GM allocated $28 Million for the research and development of an intelligent digital/hydraulic active suspension management that would adapt to road conditions, lateral handling and corner balancing through a Delco computer and the most sophisticated suspension system ever installed in a car to date. This state-of-the-art technology was ahead 10 years and was meant to become viable mainstream just only in the early 2000’s.
