Coachbuilt Corvette Soleil Anadi from Ugur Sahin Design Makes Debut at Monaco

Coachbuilt Corvette from Ugur Sahin Design Makes Debut at Monaco

Last week’s Top Marques car show in Monaco saw the introduction of the Soleil Anadi, a coachbuilt Corvette designed and built through a partnership with Ugur Sahin and Spada Concepts. We’ve featured Sahin’s wonderfully radical designs here in the past, namely the Z03 that was to be a joint partnership with US tuner Mallet Cars. But this is the first prototype we’ve seen from him that has made the jump from vaporware to the real deal.

The company opened a showroom in Milan, Italy and that’s where the transformation of the Corvette to the Soleil Anadi takes place. Custom aluminum and carbon fiber bodywork gives the Corvette a new look while the standard 6.2 liter Corvette powerplant is supercharged and tuned to around 650 horsepower. The Soleil Anadi can also be built on the Z06 or ZR1 platforms.

Although the interior has also been fully customized, the windows of the prototype at Monaco were tinted and pictures are expected in the near future.

The Corvette was chosen for its relatively low cost which makes the Soleil Anadi more affordable, as well for its track records in motorsports according to Ugur Sahin Design co-founder Axel van Mourik.

The company released some renderings in advance of the Soleil’s introduction at Monaco and Autoblog.nl provides us with photos from the introduction at the Top Marques show:
