The 2020 presented Corvette C8 is known to be the first of its kind to swap its front engine for an engine housed in the rear. Although this is very controversial among Corvette fans, it catapults the C8 into a segment that Corvette drivers could only dream of for decades. Now traditionalists have to be very strong again, because the current generation of the sports car icon from the USA was made by the Japanese tuner Liberty Walk in CSR Racing 2 Style (Chevrolet Corvette C8.R CSR2) modified, and got a widebody kit. Of course, it is by no means the first super sports car to fill the hallowed halls of Liberty Walk in Japan, as Ferrari models with the legendary wide-body kits from the Japanese tuning company have even been spotted.
The LB-Silhouette WORKS-Kit is available worldwide!
The good news is that this widebody kit that we're about to introduce to you today isn't limited to just a Corvette, every C8 owner is it for 21.780 US Dollars can order. In euros, that's just over 20.000, and the modifications include new ones Front and rear bumpers, huge side air intakeswhich are much larger than the already powerful ones in series production Cooling air openings on the side of the C8 and of course the fender flareswithout which the kit would of course not be complete and would not even be called widebody kit.
There is also a big one diffuser at the stern as well as a multi-part rear wing added, which finally makes the vehicle look like a GT3 racer. If the solvent Corvette fan wants even more modifications, Liberty Walk also has it tailor-made alloy wheels on offer that come in a six-spoke design and are painted glossy black. On the rims are Advan tires raised, which seem almost lost in the mighty Vette. And should it ever go on the racetrack, there is still an adjustable one Racing chassis on the option list that the inclined Corvette fan can choose.
Of course, all options catapult the price up, and you can easily get to over $ 40.000 if you can all available modifications elects. In our opinion, however, it is not necessary to modify a C8 so extensively, because it looks like a supercar even without tuning.
Everything remains standard in the interior.
Changes in the cockpit are not on the agenda at Liberty Walk at the moment, so the interior remains untouched (for the time being).
6,2-liter V8 naturally aspirated petrol remains original
Unfortunately, we have to disappoint every Corvette fan who has wanted an increase in performance, as this is not available from Liberty Walk. However, there are already enough other providers here. However, the C8 is already well positioned as standard when it comes to performance data, as it is equipped with the optionally available Performance exhaust system Generous 505 PS and 637 Newton meters of maximum torque.
With that she storms in fabulous 2,9 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, and reaches a top speed of 312 kilometers per hour. In addition, she does the sprint over the quarter mile in an impressive 11,2 seconds. These are fabulous values that until a few years ago only Hypercars like a Bugatti could shine, in a vehicle whose base price was in the USA under $ 60.000 lies.
