If you’re like most Corvette enthusiasts, you love the wide body look of the 2015-16 Z06 (and the upcoming 2017 Grand Sport).
If you already own a 2014-16 Stingray coupe or convertible and would like to convert it to the wide body look, you might want to check with the folks at ACS Composites.
They’ve just released their newest Wide Body Conversion Kit for the Stingray, allowing room for bigger tires and wheels (12 inch wheels fitting P335/25 ZR20s) and offering a more aggressive look.
ACS says the conversion extends the rear quarter nearly 2 inches per side, allowing those larger wheels and tires to get the C7 power to the ground and improve acceleration times.
An important point is that the OEM rockers don’t have to be unglued from the car’s aluminum rails, which ACS says is an expensive and dangerous procedure that would require removal of the door and potentially, through heating, distort the aluminum chassis.
You can get a scooped version like the Z06 available with functional brake cooling ductwork or a smooth version for those who prefer a cleaner look. Both versions are bolted and quickly installed for a perfect fit and finish.
ACS says it designed the widebody kits from the ground up with computer-aided engineering. All panels are sold fully prepped and primed, ready for trial fitting.
The company says it has addressed every detail, from wheel liners to fasteners to new rear splash guards.
The bolt-on kits include driver and passenger sides, rocker extension, main quarter panel, five rear quarter upper scoops, rear fascia extension, rear splash guard, wheel liners, all hardware, and manufactured in RTM composite.
