Forgiato Goes for the C7 Corvette Gold

By -

I know I’ve taken a lot of heat on pieces I’ve written before about some of the widebody Forgiato C7s, but I like this one a lot.

No, I really do.

Why, you ask? Well, because with this custom C7, Forgiato does exactly what it’s supposed to do: they take a cool car and use it as an attention grabbing, branding tool to help market another product or company.

No, this isn’t a C7 intended to impress your neighbors. The car is actually part of a sponsorship from London’s Gold & Co., a brand known for its gold-plated iPhones, as highlighted in a Bold Ride report.

In cases like this, sometimes the wilder the better, and Forgiato’s custom take on this concept is done extremely well. In fact, as crazy as it might seem, given my love for the stock appeal of the new Corvette, I think Forgiato’s gold take on the C7 has a sort of classic feel.

What do you think?
