Triggered by the boom in sports car racing in southern California, the Cheetah, an American supercar, was created in a small series. General Motors commissioned Bill Thomas, “Mr. Corvette,” who was responsible for a string of nearly 100 victories with the Corvettes he designed, to develop a dominating Corvette Sting Ray. This resulted in one of the most brutal sports cars in the 1960s. Parts were to be supplied by Chevrolet, and a minimum quantity of 100 cars was planned to meet the racing authorities’ requirement. Built on a tubular frame, a small two-seater body with gull-wing doors was inverted. A Chevrolet V8 engine powered the vehicle. By omitting superfluous comfort features, the result was an uncompromising driving machine. During the construction period, the homologation for sports and racing cars was increased by the sports authority to 1000 vehicles and thus the official GM racing ban also came into effect. No more parts were supplied by GM. Production ended in 1966 and less than 30 cars were built during this period. After a hiatus of about 35 years, production of the Cheetah was resumed by BTM LLC of Arizona. In accordance with the specifications of the original Cheetah, Bill Thomas declared his agreement and the unrestricted authority to reproduce with the “Certificate of Authenticity”.
