[PIC] This C7 Corvette With a Custom Rear Wing Earns the Scorn of Reddit

We’ve always said the Chevrolet Corvette is a canvas ready to be customized, but the other part of that equation is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That’s just a fancy way of saying be prepared for mockery should your vision not be accepted by the masses.

Take, for example, this Arctic White C7 Corvette with a custom rear wing and roof scoop.

A photo of this “Delta Stealth” C7 Corvette was posted to Reddit’s Shitty_Car_Mods where it immediately earned the scorn and ridicule of members who are trying to figure out just what exactly that wing is for.

At its most basic level, a rear wing provides stability and downforce to a car at high speeds. But this wing with is odd shape is probably hurting the aerodynamics of the car more than it’s helping by creating more drag than anything else.

Then there is the roof scoop that’s mounted to the front of the roof of the car. It could a fresh air vent for the cockpit but without seeing more of it, we’ll never know.

  1. I’m usually on the side of whoever the car belongs to, totally their choice how they deal with it. In this case … Let’s just say, I’m happy it’s not mine

  2. Reminds me of the Porsche 908LH (long tail) that the drives said “scared him stupid” it was so unstable. The first 917s were made the same and called “widowmaker”. John Wyer was brought in and realized no air was hitting the wing or flaps (yes it had flaps) and had the 917 rear deck actually swoop up and then cut off sharply (917K). Instantly became manageable and dominating. You can see pics at http://www.revs institute.org to see both shapes. The C7 in the pic at very high speeds will actually become less stable not more.

  3. WTF!!!??? Ya it does look backwards. The general public should have to be pre-approved or something, this is just nasty some people should not be allowed anywhere near a Corvette.

  4. The question should be: Does it work?, Not how does it look! Presuming that is causes more drag; is a “hasty generalization,” without evidence.

  5. He’ll probably be asked to remove that junk before someone would be willing to buy that car.
