Automotive Plastic Surgery: Corvette Wide Body Kit

Chevrolet has done a good job of upgrading the Corvette ZR1 and Z06 exteriors over the base model. Now, US tuner ZR1 Body Kits has created their own wide body kits for the C6 'Vette. Featuring an aggressive stance and styling, the kit is available in two varieties. The more aggressive trim is called the Extreme Style ZR1 and is made from fiberglass using compression molds that retains the factory mounting points and runs for $7,599.

A more mild version of this kit costs $6,999. Also available is the ZR6X Extreme body kit, which widens the car by 1.5 inches over the standard ZR1. The tuner made sure the add-ons allow enough room for new wheels and rubber. There's also a nice catalogue of carbon fiber from ZR1 Body Kits that includes a new front lip, side skirts, and diffusers. Is it a huge improvement over the ZR1 and Z06? Depends on one's personal tastes. Would we buy it? No, but it certainly doesn't offend us. Photos courtesy of zr1bodykits.com
