A member of the influential Chevrolet engineering team, Zora Arkus-Duntov became instrumental in transforming the Corvette from a docile boulevardier into a fearsome sports car by installing a succession of ever more powerful engines beginning in 1955 with the 195-horsepower small block V-8. He later spearheaded the development of CERV I (the 1960 Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle), the Corvette Grand Sports, the magnesium-bodied Super Sport, and numerous others.
In celebration of Zora Duntov, “the Father of the Corvette,” and his role in immortalizing the Corvette name, the Petersen will be hosting an exclusive two-day celebration led by a night of entertainment, food by Drago, and a Corvette display. The VIP reception will be followed the next day by a Corvette rally, cruise-in, and a once-in-a-lifetime panel discussion.
