Here’s a follow-up on last week’s story about the New Braunfels, Texas Police Department’s kids contest to help name their new Corvette Z06 police car. The department has announced a winning name submitted by Chandler Radtke. From this day forth, the car will be known as Coptimus Prime.
Did I miss the memo this week which dictates that all Corvettes should have red wheels?
Earlier, we shared an Arctic White Corvette Z06 with red custom wheels from Forgiato. And now we’re sharing some new photos of this Black Corvette Z06 outfitted with red concave wheels.

We’ve wondered if Chevrolet would ever add an electric motor to a Corvette to increase horsepower.
Well, someone already beat them to the punch. At the Battery Show 2015 in Novi, Mich., the Genovation GXE all-electric vehicle based on a C6 Corvette Z06 made its public debut.
This is no Volt, either.
We’ve been documenting Forgiato’s love affair with the C7 Corvette since the beginning when a widebody Stingray was built for the 2013 SEMA show. Over the last two years, we’ve seen about a dozen different versions of the widebody Stingray built in all kinds of colors and wheel selections.
Now that Chevy is building their own “widebody” in the form of the Corvette Z06, we wondered what Forgiato would have in store for the 650 horsepower super car. As these pictures show, we are not disappointed.
We’re not sure the C7 Corvette Stingray could be made to look any better, but that doesn’t stop people from trying. Check out this photoshop work on the front of a Corvette Stingray that gives it a much more aggressive look.
Here’s a couple of things you don’t see every day – a Chrome C7 Corvette Stingray – and a wrecked Chrome C7 Corvette Stingray that crashed into one of those round barriers by some fuel pumps at a Shell Station.
I believe we’ve actually seen this Stingray before as it has been posted on social media numerous times. It’s hard to miss a Chrome Stingray. For the driver, it was the gas station’s fuel pumps that he just missed crashing into at this gas station in Marina Del Ray, California.
Okay, when I first heard that someone had transplanted the C7 Corvette’s high intensity LED lights onto a widebody C6 Corvette, I was a bit skeptical. But after seeing photos of the C6 with the grafted C7 headlights, I am totally sold on this mod.
Not everyone may fall in love with this yellow and black 1972 Motion Moray Corvette.
But one thing is for sure: the owner will never see another one on the road.
You see, this is one ultra-rare Corvette, as in one-of-one!
Say the name of Caravaggio to those Corvette owners in the know and immediately visions of handcrafted leather seats and D-shaped steering wheels come to mind. But John Caravaggio’s shop is capable of transforming an entire Corvette inside and out and he recently showed off his latest work on a customer’s C7 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
