Default C7 wide body kit? When?

Since the c7 zo6 is going to be a wide body, when do you think the parts with be available for purchase as a kit or are there other vendors with a aftermarket kit available?

Thanks...

Crash parts will probably be 6 months from date of release before the general public could order them (or grey market them in the mean time, but that might take a VIN).

Best bet would be to wait on the aftermarket.

Forgiato had two cars with them, not sure if those were one offs. Loma is working on one.

1st, not one-off's. a total of 10 have been built so far.

2nd, despite numerous postings on here and the web, it does not cost $100K for this kit to be installed on your C7.......

Yes, they are selling TURN-KEY C7's, for $150-165K but that's them providing everything!

The widebody's are actually made by TS Designs for Forgiato. If you provide TS Designs your C7 in collaboration with Forgiato will transform your C7 into a widebody.

Kits dor DIY's from TS Designs/Forgiato are under development and should be available in the near future.


I have my C7 with them now and it goes to the paint next week!









One of the C7 verts they just completed:

GM just announced that parts for the Z/28 will be exclusive for limited production to protect the Z/28 branding.

I bet the Z06, which is actually the Z07 track pack we keep seeing will also get this limited production to Z07 owners, watch!

Man I really hope so. I really hated all the wide body copy parts GM sold to everyone who had a base car for the C6. If they keep the body parts exclusive to the model, then it all gets a lot more tempting when I'm spending a hundred grand. They ought to do something to protect the Z06 branding, and the first place to start is by making the parts expensive as hell or impossible to buy without a VIN number.
Aftermarket parts or body kits are fine and I have no problem with. I just wouldn't care for one myself.

That front bumper is such a let down.

If a all goes to plan, should be in the paint booth next week ..

I'm undecided on to stay ALL Laguna Blue with the trim pieces ( aero package , spoiler, mirrors) painted carbon flash metallic or ADDING the carbon flash to the roofline like the below pic

The weaponX splitter, diffuser, rocker blades, hood, and spoiler will be unveiled this weekend. The wide body kit is already designed and will be 5 axis cut to begin molding very soon! I plan have it ready in late spring!

There is now a German company (with offices in the US) who has designed a great wide body kit for the C7. Some of the parts I may not like, but the rear "spoiler" is fantastic, and I am trying to find out how I can get one for my C7. Look for Prior Design and you may find it. I saw a write-up in my Swedish "Teknikens Värld" about this kit.
