You either love it or hate it. That’s the consensus we’ve come to as there doesn’t seem to be much in-between when it comes to the Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingray shown at SEMA last week.
We admit that “Aston Martin Blue” exterior color is a little tough for us to go for too, but those curves are so cool! It’s a car that’s totally at home in the SEMA Dub Show and to see it live is to appreciate the look and the workmanship that went into the build. But I couldn’t imagine this as a daily driver.
The Corvette Stingray was widened by the Wide Body King Topo from TS Designs. It’s an amazing amount of work that had to have happened in such a compressed time period. Not only was the rear widened, but so was the front too. The Corvette’s rear splitter was redone in carbon fiber and the trim around the rear lights was all done in carbon fiber as well.
We learned about this Corvette from Forgiato so its only appropriate we talk about the wheels. This Corvette Stingray widebody is sitting on 21 inch front and 22 inch rear Forgiato Maglia-ECL Cut Spoke Wheels. Like the Stingray, the wheels are done in Black with an Aston Martin blue gloss finish.
When we found the Corvette Stingray on display outdoors in the Dub Show area, a large crowd was continually surrounding the car. Sitting on top of the Blue Corvette Stingray was the 2013 SEMA Design Award for “Best New Chevrolet Exterior.”
We overheard that the Corvette was already sold to a buyer in the Middle East who had a matching Aston Martin. So while we may never catch the Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette in the flesh again, it will difinately be remembered.
