After stealing the show at last year’s Manila Auto Salon, Gi Automotive with the help of the folks at Philippines-based Car Porn Racing is ready for the big stage in the U.S. with an even wilder version of their Black Manta Corvette – this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas that runs through Friday.
This week we have another special edition of our ever popular Midyear Monday gallery. We walked the SEMA show last week and found these C2 Corvettes among the Corvettes on display.
The C2s weren’t many, so we are also featuring several shots of each as we fully explore these customized SEMA show cars.
Among the offerings are a Superformance/Lingenfelter Grand Sport Replica, Heartland Custom’s 1963 SpecVette, a special 1967 Armed Forces Tribute Car, a couple of wicked 1963 Corvette Split Window Restomods.
I’ve made no bones about my love of that blue Grand Sport, but they are all great looking Corvettes built in the SEMA tradion. Got a favorite? Let us know in the comments section below or hit us up on Twitter and Facebook.
That Racing Channel has a new feature video on a nasty C6 Blue Devil Corvette ZR1 packing 820 horsepower at the wheels. The video features a variety of different street pulls where you can hear the modded LS9 doing its thing and then watch the ZR1 rip the quarter mile at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Florida with a time of 9.576 at 149.30 mph.
Corvette owners take the act of parking their cars seriously as the car will generally be out of their care while they are going about their business.
You want to get a Corvette owner riled up? Try parking a less than stellar vehicle next to their sports car and then sit back and watch the action. Of course, Barnes here should have known better than to “pig park” next to the bosses Corvette.
