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.
Forgiato went to work on all phases of this Arctic White Corvette Stingray. First we see that wider rear end of the Corvette Z06 versus the Corvette Stingray was made even wider by “Topo the Widebody King” to accommodate the huge 355/25 sized rear tires which are riding on Forgiato’s F2.23 candy apple red wheels that are 21″ in size on the rears, while the fronts ride on 20″ wheels.
We particularly like how the rear brake ducts were enlarged in the process and they look good with the mesh covers to block any incoming objects.
Forgiato’s styling on the Z06 also includes their custom front grille along with carbon fiber front spoiler, side rockers and a rear spoiler and diffuser.
Under the hood, the power from the Z06’s LT4 was stretched from 650 stock horsepower to 800-horses We don’t know how they got to that figure, but the high-rise hood makes us believe the stock supercharger was swapped out for an aftermarket blower.
We are not been much of a fan of red wheels (or any brightly-finished colored wheel for that matter) but the candy apple red F2.23s accent the Arctic White and black Corvette Z06 very nicely in our opinion. Check out the gallery of photos below:
