Here’s a car that proves there are options for Corvette enthusiasts besides buying a new C7 Z06.
How about a one-of-a-kind C5 Z06 with a Lingenfelter custom-built engine that generates 810 horsepower with its 5.7-liter V8 boost dual turbo, ATI Super Charger?
This 2002 Corvette is up for sale now on eBay, and you can “Buy It Now” for just $78,500 – well below the appraised value of $95,000, the seller says.
The car features a custom-built carbon fiber body with a candy apple custom paint job, including a nicely done rear spoiler and special rear bumper treatment, all on top of a black leather interior with Z06 logos on the seats. Unlike stock Z06s, this one also has a removable targa top like the base C5s, which is a nice touch but also begs the question of how sturdy the car will be unless it has additional upgrades to strengthen the aluminum frame.
The monster engine is hooked up to a six-speed manual transmission, and the car also features the following performance upgrades: Corsa titanium competition exhaust, B&M Degree thermostat, Optima Red Top battery, Performance Flow power duct, Coupler and CAGS eliminator, Alloy Racing Ultra-Lightweight wheels, Custom disc brakes, and full-off body nut and bolt restoration.
The original owner says the Corvette has been kept in storage to maintain its pristine condition.
“Title in hand and ready for new owner today,” he says.
The ebay auction for this one-of-a-kind 2002 Corvette Lingenfelter will close on Monday at 6:16 pm ET.
