Sports cars are seemingly engineered to be modified. Proof of that is the modification of the latest Chevrolet C8 Corvette. Of course, there’s no denying that this model is new to the streets but has been modified several times already.
However, don’t get the wrong idea that the Corvette C8 is a poor-looking car. Its default mid-engine layout–a first for any Chevrolet car–is definitely attention-grabbing. The design makes this American-tailored car a good fit if taken into the European roads. Even without modifications, the Corvette C8 is already a striking piece of machinery.
But of course, the aftermarket always has ways to make things a little bit spicier. This time, the Corvette C8 became a recipient of such customization.
Pandem, a Japanese-based company specializing in making unique to outrageous car builds, just released its widebody kit for the C8. Whether you like the conversion or not, there’s no denying that their widebody kit is something to behold.
As expected of Pandem, the kit it released is far from subtle and classy. It did not hesitate to change the original sleek layout of the C8 and instead made something that changes the American hero’s overall structure. In fact, we would agree with the claims of many that the widebody kit made the C8 look like a Hot Wheels car.
The said kit modified the front-end of the car with a low-lying splitter. Meanwhile, the changes on the rear and side of the vehicle are more aggressive than on the front. The fenders have been squared off and widened in such a way that has never been thought of before. It is also notable that the customized side sills are somewhat too close to the ground.
Going to the rear, you will see a majestic spoiler that is large enough to become a kitchen table. Not only that, the rear bumper and diffuser got winged accessories, too.
If you are going to purchase the entire kit, you might need to prepare at least $7,000, which is not already bad for a full transformation. Since it is not that expensive for an impressive modification, it is expected that many C8 in the US roads will sport such a look.
