Port Elizabeth – Chevrolet has released new limited edition models in South Africa - funky Spark Curve, beefed-up Ute Working and the laid back Ute Surf .
According to Chevrolet SA: "The names of the limited edition models say it all: Working and Surf. The specialised nature of the former is addressed with a cluster of common-sense add-ons, which underpin the Utility’s ability to add value to businesses large and small."
The Ute Working has a cab protector, rubberised load box, body decals, new wheel covers and a radio/CD-player. It can be specified with or without aircon. Only 200 will be built.

It has a tubular, stainless-steel sport bar, roof rack/spoiler, blacked-out B-pillar, special decals (which also run along the loadbay and tailgate), dark headlight surrounds and five-spoke alloy rims. A radio/CD unit and aircon is standard.
