We’ve been following the electric adventures of Genovation Cars for some time now. They initially broke onto the Corvette scene a couple years ago with the all-electric C6. That sinister black Z06 ultimately claimed the street legal electric car standing mile and top speed records.
From there they naturally moved on the C7 platform for their next electric rocket ship. The bright blue Genovation GXE all-electric Corvette broke cover this past January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. With the debut also came confirmation that the car would make roughly 800hp, 700ft-lbs of torque, hit 0-60 in less than 3 seconds, and top out right around 220mph. Oh, and it’ll cost you $750,000.
When we heard that the GXE would be on display at last week’s Lingenfelter Collection Spring Open House it gave us 1 more reason to attend. The bright blue GXE was tucked in amongst Ken Lingenfelter’s throng of super cars. At $750,000 it wasn’t even close to being the most expensive car in the room. Crowds surrounded the C7 the whole time we were there.
The overall styling of the GXE subtly complements the already edgy Grand Sport. We love the almost sleeper styling of the GXE. Novice passersby may just think it’s a ZR1 or even a GS with a big wing on the back. Stealth mode. It’s once you look close you notice the massive diffuser out back below the round taillights. Up front there’s a unique lower splitter and fascia. The fascia and the side mirrors both feature super cool accent pipe lighting that make the car look like something out of the Tron movies. The former gas filler now serves as the charging port. The clear window in the hood allows a sneak peek at the magic hidden below. A set of carbon fiber wheels and side skirts round out the exterior look.
Inside the red and black cabin you’ll find custom embroidered Competition Sport seats with the GXE logo. The standard center gauge cluster has been replaced by a large computer screen. Other than that, you’d think it’s a stock Grand Sport. Again, stealth mode.
The Genovation GXE is still undergoing its final testing so no official performance numbers are out just yet, but we should expect to them in the coming months. Based on what they’ve done with their C6, we can’t wait to see what they can do with the C7. Since the GXE is assembled right in the Motor City Bureau’s backyard we hope to bring you more from the Genovation team soon. Thanks to CEO Andrew Saul and his team for taking the time speak with us at the Lingenfelter Open House.
Now sit back, charge up, and enjoy our gallery of the Genovation GXE.
