Chevrolet has unveiled the one-off livery that Alain Menu will use in this weekend's World Touring Car Championship event at the Algarve circuit.
Menu, who lies third in the championship, will carry the livery of French comic book hero Michel Vaillant due to a tie-in between the manufacturer and Studio Graton, whose founder Jean created the character in the 1950s.
"I'm happy and excited at the same time because Michel Vaillant was a great part of my youth," said Menu.
"When I was a child and teenager, I used to read all his comic books, dreaming that one day I would become an F1 driver. To impersonate Michel Vaillant is something I never expected."
