Chaparral 216 SSi (2011-)

1 x 270-hp Volvo Penta 5.0 GXiC



Brief Summary

Just one look and we were hooked on the Chaparral 216 SSi. I mean seriously, look at the chromed engine intakes, the large sun pad, that comfortable seating... it's all good. But even more, when we got to drive it, it was like meeting an old friend who just happened to be carrying all kinds of fun. Today we offer a full performance review and test video that shows off some of the cool features in addition to the outstanding handling.
