Chevrolet, the official sponsor of Manchester United, had showcased the Beat and Sail U-VA hatchbacks in the colours of the football team at the 2014 Auto Expo, earlier this year. Now, reports suggest that the American manufacturer is going to bring out limited numbers of these special edition cars in the Indian market. The jersey of Manchester United for the EPL 2014 will be officially revealed on July 7 and the special edition cars are expected to be launched on the same day.
The special edition of both the Beat and Sail U-VA will be painted in the colours of the Manchester United team. The special paint scheme will also be carried inside the car to both the dashboard and the upholstery. Under the skin, both the cars will remain identical to the regular Beat and Sail U-VA. We expect the limited edition to be offered only in the top-end variants of both the cars.
Chevrolet is also the founding sponsor of ‘One World Futbol Project’, under which it will be giving away 15 lakh footballs in three years to underprivileged kids from impoverished areas, conflict zones and refugee camps.
Chevrolet will also be holding a contest across the country called Fast Moves where two lucky winners will get a chance to watch Manchester United play live against Real Madrid, in August. Both the special edition cars are currently being displayed at select malls across the country where the competition will be held.
