Well, one thing you can say for sure about this way-out-there, wide-body Corvette Stingray is that everyone will have an opinion about it – even your grandma!
It’s supposedly the widest (and maybe wildest) C7 convertible in the world, according to the fellow who posted a bunch of photos of his friend’s one-of-a-kind Stingray on Corvette Forum late last month.
“This color is called antifreeze and woowwwww does it look beautiful in the sun with the pearl. The car just showed up today to Tampa, FL from California where it was built and painted into what you see. Carbon fiber front splitter is on the car and the carbon side skirts and rear diffuser should be here within a week,” the post reads.
In comments left on the site, we get a feeling that the car is too much for some folks, but after all, a Corvette is not supposed to be subtle, is it? If you want subtle, buy a Camry.
As the original poster writes, “this car is unreal in person. I know it’s not for everyone and there will be some people that think it’s too ghetto, but for the rest of us, hope you enjoy it!”
Personally, I think the wide body looks great, and I’ve always felt that Chevy should offer the Stingray in some wild factory colors like neon green and neon orange, maybe even neon pink for the ladies.
But based on the response to the calm by comparison Lime Rock Green and its poor sales in 2014, I can see why Chevy would be a little gun shy about offering such out-there colors like Antifreeze. Not many people are brave enough like this Corvette owner evidently is to shout to the world: “HEY, LOOK AT ME!!!!” – which is exactly what this Antifreeze Stingray exclaims from the top of its lungs.
By the way, if you have what we assume to be pretty big bucks lying around, then this Corvette will be for sale when it’s finally done.
