In 1972 one of the XP-882 cars was rebodied with a more European looking bodystyle that was less forward looking, less Corvette like and less wedgy than the beloved XP-882, although still lovely. It also was considerably heavier and slower than its predecessor. The solution? A second identical car with an all aluminum body made by GM’s supplier Reynolds Metals, finished in 1973. The two cars were indistinguishable from one another to the naked eye, but the Reynolds Vette was 450 pounds lighter. The Reynolds Aluminum Corvette resides today in the GM Heritage Center, while the XP-895 was mercifully transformed into something else.
