The Chevrolet Corvette is the attainable all-American sports car, especially for blue-collar workers. Even though the Corvette lacks the refinement of its European competition, it more than makes up for it when it comes to performance.
We think the C8 Corvette is one of the best sports cars on the market, and for several good reasons. According to Chevrolet, the base C8 Corvette model produces nearly 500 hp and has a 0-60 mph acceleration time of under 3 seconds. For a sports car with a base price of around $60,000, those are some incredible numbers.
Like the previous Corvette generations, the C8 Corvette is no stranger to modifications. Some of the coolest body mods for your mid-engine Corvette C8 include front splitters, carbon fiber side skirts, and even a full widebody kit.
On TheStradman's popular YouTube channel, we get a final look at his Rapid Blue C8 generation Chevrolet Corvette with a full widebody kit and a ferocious valved exhaust system.
WideBody Chevrolet Corvette C8
While we love seeing exotic hypercars like the Lamborghini Aventador and Bugatti Veyron, the Chevrolet C8 is a refreshing change. Even with a base price of around $60,000, the C8 Corvette is a dream come true, especially as depreciation sets in on the used market.
Regarding this build, the main star of the show is the widebody kit by the company Pandem. Other than the bolts, the widebody kit looks like it could come from the factory.
A set of Anovia wheels take this Corvette C8 to the next level in style. Because of the extra space provided by the custom widebody kit, TheStradman upgrades the already wide stock tire size 305 mm to 355 mm, making them as wide as his other car, the Lamborghini Aventador.
The Corvette C8 is somewhat quiet from the factory and TheStradman added a straight pipe exhaust which produces the most insane noises on a car.
While 495 hp is a lot of power for most people, in typical Stradman fashion, he wants to take that power to the next level. With twin-turbo and supercharger kits available on the C8 platform, the sky is the limit in terms of adding power.
Purchasing A Chevrolet Corvette C8
Although the Corvette C8 is one of the most affordable sports cars on the market, supply is much lower than the demand currently. Many dealers are adding markups for “market adjustment” and unfortunately, customers are paying.
However, by doing a little research, you can find Chevrolet dealers that do not add any markups. With a little patience and persistence, getting the car of your dreams is possible for MSRP.
