[PICS] Forgiato's 800-HP Widebody Corvette Z06 with Custom Red Wheels


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.

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.

No doubt a lot of parents could have been arrested in the 1950s and 1960s for letting their children ride in the back of their two-seater Corvettes.

I remember one person writing on one of the forums about bolting a car seat in the back of his C2 Corvette to allow his kids to enjoy the car back in the day. I’m sure others didn’t go that far and just let their kids ride in the big area behind the seats in their 1963-67 Sting Rays.

The decision won’t affect American customers, but General Motors says it has changed its corporate philosophy to include the engineering of right-hand drive capabilities in certain vehicles from the beginning.

While that switch won’t help customers in places like Australia that might be candidates for the current Camaro and Silverado if they were RHD, it does offer hope in the future that such vehicles could show up some day in The Land Down Under.
