Nailed It! Corvette Z06 Puts On Weird Widebody Kit, Ferrari F12-Like Front End


The Corvette C7 Z06 is a very good sports car, but someone obviously thought that a number of modifications would improve its looks. Mission accomplished? We wouldn’t say so.

The car’s exterior is painted in a shade of baby blue which on its own isn’t particularly nice. Obviously, the car’s owner wasn’t satisfied with simply driving around in a baby blue Corvette and thought it would be a good idea to fit it with an aftermarket bodykit.

This bodykit includes flared front and rear wheel arches which, oddly, look to be painted in a slightly different shade of blue than the rest of the car. Making these wheel arches look even worse are the panel gaps, black exposed screws and the black rubber surrounds, as these Reddit photos show.

Other modifications include a set of black Forgiato wheels and a front bumper inspired by that of the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Unsurprisingly, this Ferrari-esque bumper doesn’t work very well with the rest of the car’s design.

Speaking of the C7 Corvette Z06, it was revealed just before Christmas that General Motors will extend warranty cover for select Z06 models due to the overheating issues they can encounter when driving on the track.

A document from the car manufacturer has revealed that extended warranty coverage applies to 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 model year Z06s. To fix the issue, dealers will install an updated radiator package while also fitting new shift point calibration software for Z06 models with the available six-speed automatic transmission.
