Someone Fitted A C8 Corvette Interior Into A Chevy Camaro

Video / Comments

We can't imagine the wiring headache this was.

In a clever bit of marketing, Stitched by Slick on YouTube (whom you might recognize for doing up Snoop Dogg's Lincoln Continental), has named this car the IROC-Z06. It's basically the love child of a Chevrolet Camaro IROC from 1994 and a modern C8 Chevrolet Corvette supercar.

The C8's entire interior, plus some bits we'll get to, has been swapped into this Chevrolet Camaro IROC in a light "Maui" Blue. There are, predictably, some snags keeping this from being a full interior swap being from a roadster and all, but that's mostly down to physics, and not a lack of talent.

Take the center gauge cluster. The original C8's rightmost screen is now an iPad. But even that is impressive, seeing as it controls the car's air conditioning. The main screen stays the same, but the wheel is notably out of the previous generation of Corvette Z06 unless this guy has somehow managed to get a wheel for a car that hasn't even been shown to the media yet.

Still, everything in this interior works. That includes the push-button start (which still needs a key in the ignition), climate switches, and the Corvette's drive selectors. It's unclear if the manual mode works, but the rest of the buttons seem to work just fine. The seats are reupholstered, as are the rears (the 'Vette of course doesn't have those), and a special Stingray graphic has been worked onto the transmission tunnel.

Outside, things are just as impressive, with totally refreshed bodywork and new wheels. But the real star here is the interior and the craftsmanship that went into it. The trunk has even been reupholstered for a special purpose.

T-tops were all the rage in the 80s and 90s, and the Camaro was no exception to the trend. This one now has a place to put them, a-la Koenigsegg, in the trunk. Special carriers were cut out of the car, allowing the trunk lid to be closed fully with the tops securely placed in the back.

A final C8 part sits under the hood. In addition to custom powder coating and a shaved-ish bay, the C8's engine cover sits atop the LS1 V8 swapped from a C5 'Vette.
