Even before the C8 mid-engine Corvette showed up last July in the flesh we knew this mod was coming. Lamborghini-styled doors, also known as butterfly or scissor doors, would certainly be at home on the first exotic Corvette. And thanks to a shop out in Arizona, we now have some renders and an update as they are creating a kit for the 2020 Corvette.
EIKON Motorsports are doing the Lambo door treatment on their own 2020 Corvette and according to Autoevolution they sourced the parts from a Vertical Doors C7 kit. To get it to fit on the C8 Corvette, they will have to update the mounting bracket to fit the C8’s body but the good news is that Chevy engineers used the same bolt sizes and mounting template as the C7’s doors so it shouldn’t be too long before they have it all figured out.
The shop will be selling the Lambo-door kits for $2,999 with all the hardware required or $4,300 with installation. As part of the presale they offered to provide updates on the kit’s progress and EION provided this Instagram video showing the car partially disassembled. They believe they will have the project completed in about three weeks.
EIKON Motorsports has installed nearly 4,000 doors over the last 14 years so they should know what they are doing. We know that it will be a special moment to see an actual 2020 Corvette with the vertical doors installed so stay tuned!
Editor’s Note: We have updated the price of the kit to $2,999 which reflects the price listed on the EIKON website.
