C6 Corvette Platform Gets an Italian Makeover
I’m not quite sure how I missed this one, but considering that it’s built on the beloved C6 platform, I figured it’s deserving of a few comments here, good or bad. The Soleil Anadi, hand-built in Italy, was showcased at the recent New York International Auto Show, and so far counts three owners in the Middle East as its exclusive customer base, according to a New York Times report.
I can’t remember if I’ve ever come across a creepy Corvette, but this one certainly fits the bill. The eerie-looking C6 was created by a fan of Forza Motorsport 4. From the dripping blood, to Pennywise, the Dancing Clown from Stephen King’s “It”, the design is a pretty strange take on a Corvette.
This morning, I began gathering data to write a post about how orange was a missing hue in the C7 Corvette paint scheme, but as I was scuba diving through the forums, news began to break from Corvette Forum members attending the 2014 National Corvette Museum Bash. According to forum member “mpuzach” (a.k.a. Mike), orange is coming back to the Corvette for 2015.
How’s this for a piece of Corvette history? The Corvette CERV II: it certainly would rank as one of the wildest Corvettes built by Chevy, in my opinion. The concept stems from a ’60s experiment centered on speed, and it will be on display at the upcoming Corvettes at Carlisle.
Recently purchased by Corvette Forum member “WLDvette13″, this Arctic White C7 with the carbon fiber roof just does it for me. Because this Stingray has changed my mind about Arctic White C7s, it gets the nod for “Corvette of the Week”.
