Default Ivan Tampi ZR1 bumper for C7, Z06, GS


Ivan Tempi is going to be coming out with the ZR1 style front bumper that will fit the C7 the Z06 and Grand Sport. According to the company you will not have to change fenders or hood. this bumper is designed to bolt right on to your factory Corvette C7.

thoughts?

A bumper that makes your car look like something it's not....

Nothing says ZR1 poser more than that I guess!

I like it thinking about it for my 2016 Callaway so i can add Gspeed cooling. I think of it like the gallardo second gen bumper being put on first gen lambos. Besides i am already completely buried in my Callaway and do not want to get buried again. I dont care if that makes me a zr1 poser or not. Still want the front cameras to be operational tho.

It's a bumper, not zr1 badges. I had a Stingray and put the GS/z06 grill in it because I thought it looked better, does that mean I'm trying to impersonate a GS/Z06?

I got a collector edition now and have seen a Stingray with the blue GS fender marks. I don't take it he's trying to make his car a GS.

again, it's a bumper

I'd have to agree. The Stingray and Z06 are great cars in their own right and putting on a "ZR1" style bumper just looks like a poser no matter how one justifies it. Imagine pulling into a car meet with your new bumper and sees a real ZR1 there.

The centre grill makes it look like it's smiling at you.... and to me that centre moulding makes it look cluttered I don't know why they put that on there?
It's obviously not identical to the ZR1.

I like it!

So anything that doesn't come directly from "the factory" is a "poser"?

Riiiiiggght.

I think it looks horrible, some sort of smiling guppy or emoji.

Functionally it appears to restrict the C7 intake area, the additional side intakes have no use unless someone is going to put some radiators in there.

No, it's because the racecar has a 5.5l n/a engine that doesn't overheat after two laps. If you've spent much time on this forum, you know about the issues with z06's overheating, which the zr1 supposedly addresses with additional radiators on the sides and more heat exchangers.

race car doesn't have AC condenser, intercooler, and has much more efficient heat exchangers, much less power (and load since its NA) and is designed to run at 300 degree oil temps.
