New York-based Karvajal Design has just recently launched a new Corvette conversion package called the ZX-1. The page comes in two stages with the first being a complete body conversion while the second stage addresses performance. After reading the specs and checking out some of the photos, our exuberance for the ZX-1 is about on par with the facial expression on the model pictured above.
The ZX-1 starts with widening the Corvette C6′s body from 72″ to 80″. A copious amount of LEDs are added both front and rear and a custom exhuast, rear diffuser and 19/20″ HRE Aluminum wheels complete the look. Underneath the widebody, Karvajal added a Magnuson supercharger to produce over 600 horsepower and Brembo disc brakes, a Pfaft coil-over suspension and a full under-body aero design complete the package.
Inside the Corvette ZX-1, buyers can choose to go with a leather interior trim or do a premium upgrade that includes alcantara race seats and door panels, aluminum sill plates, floor mats and a leather-wrapped flat bottom steering wheel.
Karvajal Designs plans to build 300 ZX-1s with packages starting at $69,900. Customers supply the donor Corvette. The very first Corvette ZX-1 was built using a 2007 Corvette C6 and that car was recently listed on ebay with a buy-it-now price of $185,000.
