Vilner Customizes a 1976 Corvette Stingray

Classic Cars

Nothing like modifying a classic.

We’ve seen some pretty outrageous stuff from Bulgarian tuning company Vilner, most notably its wild interiors. Normally the cars they tune are new models like a Bentley Continental GT and a Mercedes SLS AMG. This time, however, is different. Vilner has chosen to tune and redo the interior of a 1976 Chevy Corvette Stingray. The old Stingray’s 5.7-liter V8 received a new head and shafts, and two twin carburetors. This combination allowed for output to be increased to about 300 horsepower.

The exterior now features a calf leather-wrapped targa roof trim along with new daytime running lights and turn signals. The taillights have been replaced with LED units. But perhaps the most drastic change is the interior, which is now decked out with calf-Nappa leather upholstery. There’s also a new audio system featuring three amplifiers. Instead of the old wood trim, Vilner swapped in Corian inserts, a material is made from acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Other touches include a redesigned speedometer and tachometer. Official pricing for the upgrades wasn’t announced.
