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.
