Corvettes on eBay: 2014 Forgiato Corvette Stingray Widebody in Arctic White

One of the hottest designs to come out of the 2013 SEMA Show was the Forgiato widebody Corvette Stingray. While previous SEMA shows have featured redesigned or rebodied Corvettes as show cars or pre-production concepts, the Forgiato widebody seems to have real staying power as more individuals are emulating the design with their own cars.

Previous Forgiato C7 widebodys have been featured in some rather unique exterior colors like Aston Martin Blue and Tangelo Orange, but we found this Forgiato Stingray on eBay painted in one of the factory colors – Arctic White.

John Hennessey discusses & test drives the HPE700 Supercharged C7 Corvette.

The HPE 700 is powered by a TVS supercharger with 7 lbs of boost. The Corvette puts down over 600 horsepower to the wheels and overall horsepower is measured at 707.

The arctic white sports car also features Hennessey’s carbon fiber splitter and aero rocker panels. The custom wheels on the car not only look good, but they save around 17 pounds over the stock alloys.

Hennessey then takes the Corvette Stingray out to his test track and puts the angry-sounding C7 through its paces before finishing with a massive burnout.

Corvettes on eBay: Mail Order Baldwin Motion Phase III Corvette

During the horsepower era of the sixties and early seventies, several dealers and tuners rose to prominence as the place to go if you wanted more performance out of your Chevrolet.

We’ve recently featured a 1969 Corvette from Nickey Chevrolet in Chicago, which was a great place to have your Corvette souped up if you lived in the midwest. But if you lived over on the east coast, chances are your dealership/tuner of choice would be Joel Rosen and Baldwin Motion on Long Island, NY.

German Tuner Geiger Goes to Work on the 2014 Corvette Stingray

We’ve spotlighted many of the wild custom cars from GeigerCars, which has been tuning American cars in Germany for 35 years.

Their latest creation, based on the wildly popular 2014 Stingray, isn’t as over the top as some of their previous work, but the car features a custom paint treatment that favors the C6 427 Anniversary Edition with a white base topped with two blue stripes that end on the top of the hood instead of going all the way down to the spoiler like the factory job.

The one-of-a-kind 1957 Corvette SS must be wondering what it has to do to have some fun on the racetrack.

Fifty-seven years ago, the SS made its debut at Sebring but only managed to cover 23 laps before having to head to the garage because of technical problems. Unfortunately, it was to be the only competition for the SS because General Motors and other automakers placed a self-imposed ban on racing competition after several deaths on the track.

[VIDEO] Hennessey Shows Off the HPE650 Corvette Stingray

Most of us will never have the chance to drive, much less own, a supercar like the 2014 Hennessey Performance HPE650 supercharged Stingray or the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06.

But while we’re dreaming, let’s go ahead and compare what we know about these two dream cars and try to come up with a conclusion about which one we’d take.

If you want exclusivity, then the Hennessey might be your best option. Only 100 of the cars will be produced, and with an engine tune that cranks out 650 horsepower – 25 more than expected in the Z06, the Hennessey definitely will have its fans.
