You'll about have to graft the entire front end to do so. The fenders were redesigned for widebody w/o spats which would keep the ZR1 front bumper from aligning with existing fenders. Also, the body lines of the new hood extend down into the new nose, which would keep the nose from aligning with the body lines of the existing hood.

Are you talking about the ZR1? If so I agree... but they obviously did that so it cools the rads better.

That's a lot of money and work to put into just to make your C7 look like the new ZR1. Hopefully they'll be manufacturers that will make aftermarket front bumpers just like that so it will fit the existing Z06 and Grand Sport.

This picture is definitely PhotoShopped. But if you look at the new ZR1, you see Aventador in the nose anyway!!

Only to another Corvette person. Nobody else would know. It looks like a ZR1.

Looks similar to the C7 Gran Veloce Front Bumper to me.

Not for me...kind of analogous to putting a Corvette front bumper on a Pontiac Solstice...

assuming some people on here don't like the looks of ZR1 either.
I wonder if that front fascia will be specfic to the ZR1, or if all 2019 models will get the change?

I was referring to the OP's picture.

I could definitely make this bumper. Was considering something similar to this on the C67 conversion lower bumper but not a direct copy of the Lambo. Number of ways to do it but I think it would only take a day or two to get it fitting / roughed in.

Default sorry for the comparison but.....

.....it's a woman with breast enhancements, hard to take one's eyes off it but you know it's not what it should be, attractive but overdone....I think I'll stop here

If you could build a bumper like this I would be very interested in buying it. I think the Huracan bumper might be better suited for the C7.


Its got the opening in the front to cool down the rads. I don't know why GM didn't do this to the ZR1. The centre grill to me looks... I don't know... just don't care for it.
