The premiere of Chevrolet Epica took place in March 2006 at the Geneva motor show. The car was very unusual in appearance with lights similar to Impala black headlights and extremely long – more than 4.8 meters.
These qualities distinguished the car among the models of its class. The predecessor of Chevrolet Epica was Chevrolet impala; the cars have several similarities. The development involved design centre of General Motors Daewoo and technology, located in South Korea. The model was constructed on the new platform. The production of Chevrolet Epica was launched in the South Korean city of Balisong.
The latest version of the sedan was released after restyling in 2008. It comes with one of two variants of petrol engines with capacity of 2 and 2.5 liters. The engines are paired with an automatic transmission or a manual one.

To protected carthe body parts of the vehicle by use of small mechanical damage stone chip film is used, which is available in different configurations.
The most popular are two main types of stone chip films: vinyl and polyurethane coating.
