CC Outtake: Chevrolet Celebrity Eurosport VR – Very Rare

I’ve always been a really big fan of the Celebrity Eurosport, but when I saw this rear diffuser-equipped black Eurosport in traffic, my heart skipped more than a few beats. Wow; could this be a genuine Celebrity Eurosport VR?

I tried desperately to catch up with it, but nobody ever passes a Eurosport VR! The 1987 VR was a $4000 package to turn a garden-variety Eurosport into a genuine Testarossa-killer. Or at least an M5 killer. Or… Youthful fantasies could now be fully realized at your local Chevy dealer, although a properly-equipped VR would run some $20k ($38k adjusted) which might just put a bit of a crimp on the youthful budget. But with its giant-killing 130hp 2.8 V6 and three-speed automatic, that $20k bought a lot of street cred.  And it still does today. Taurus SHOs, watch out! The General did genuine sport sedans like nobody else.
