Two Italian Designers Turn to Corvette for Concepts

by Keith Cornett on April 26, 2007

For fifty years the Corvette has been a favorite of custom coach builders and tuners and that tradition continues today. Two Italian designers are both using the C6 Corvette as the basis for their concepts. The Spada Codatronca concept is from Italian designer Ercole Spada. It is based off the C6 Corvette chassis and is powered by a 7.0 liter V8 tuned up to 700 hp. Top speed is claimed to be 208 mph and 0-60 mph is around 3 seconds. The car has a digital speedometer located on its wildly designed rear. Codatronca literally means “cut tail” and you can see why its aptly named. Three versions are expected from Spada.

Milanese coachbuilder Castagna has rebodied the C6 Corvette Z096 to produce a supercar it calls the Aznom. On display this week at the Top Marques Show in Monaco, the Aznom has a retro-look curved carbon fiber body plus the Corvette’s 700bhp V8: it’s capable of 218mph and 0-60mph in 3.4 seconds. Castagna will build a small number to order.

Both concepts will be extremely limited in production and so far no plans have been announced to sell the concepts inside the United States.
