It's got a Lamborghini Aventador front end bumper! I found this on Instagram when Corvettes world posted this. There calling it Corvette Aventador. I would really like to know who the owner of this car is and who did the custom work to it. And if it's an OEM front bumper?? Or an aftermarket or off of a kit car replica? If it's Lamborghini OEM this thing would be insanely expensive not to mention the fabrication and modifications to get it to fit! I'm sure there's gonna be people on here who aren't going to like it or say it's got an identity crisis. Me personally I think this looks cool I would love to do this to my grand sport !

I like it too but I would be concerned on whether the car breathes correctly as well...

GrandSport223 01-26-2018 09:50 PM

Yea I was wondering that also..

If I spend 80 grand be worried of changes but looks neat.Up here a Lambo is 500k easy.

Not my cup of tea.:ack:

I'm satisfied with the way GM designed my GS. If I wasn't I would have bought something I was satisfied with.

I'll always be a fan of Lamborghini. There just way too damn expensive for me. In my opinion this is what General Motors should've done to the Corvette. And really is it that much different looking than the ZR1?
assuming some people on here don't like the looks of ZR1 either.

Hard to decide would like to see it up close but at first glance not all bad.

I wonder if it has Lambo doors.

GrandSport223 01-27-2018 09:29 AM

I'm wondering if this picture might be Photoshop ? Wouldn't an Aventador front and bumper be wider than a C7 Corvette I would think? How did he get that to fit so well?

My thoughts exactly on all the C7'S .

GrandSport223 01-27-2018 09:38 AM

Don't get me wrong I love the looks of my C7 GS as well. I just think this would be quite an attention grabber when you pull into a car show or gas station! 😎

If he used an OEM Aventador nose, Carbon Fiber is easier to cut and shape than molded ABS.
There isn't a lot of plastic body parts on a Lambo like a Chevrolet.

"Corventador" :lol:

Kidding aside, that actually looks pretty cool, IMO! Would love to see more high-res pics. Looks like it was very well done and fits the overall lines of the car better than I would have thought. If it were me, I would have wanted to find a way to remove the Lambo emblem from the nose and graft in the Vette emblem somehow.

I suspect that swapping the new ZR1 bumper onto Z06 /GS will be a popular option to increase air flow/cooling. Once they become available.

:iagree: Was wondering the same! Much easier than doing it in reality! Everything can be made to fit so easily!

GrandSport223 01-27-2018 11:31 AM

Yea I like the looks of the new ZR1. I'm not 100% sure but I think the front end on the ZR1 is wider than the normal Z06/GS? Or at least that's what I read

The thing sticking out of the center of the bumper totally ruins it.
