Widebody Corvette C7 With Gold Wrap And Huge Forgiato Rims Is Bling Overdose

Given how popular Chevy’s sports car is and the lineup’s remarkable breadth, it’s not easy to stand out driving around in a Corvette C7.

Some do not give up that easily, though, and tuning companies are more than happy to satisfy their most outlandish customizing requests.

One particular owner from Florida asked TS Designs to apply its widebody kit to their Corvette Convertible. Nothing unusual about that; quite the contrary, as the beefier fenders do make the Vette look meaner.

Built in collaboration with Forgiato, the widebody kit comes in handy if you wish to replace the Corvette’s standard wheels with massive aftermarket rims. In this particular case, the owner went for a set of staggered Forgiato GTRs, sized 20 inches at the front and 22 at the back.

As you can see, the wild wheels are painted gold to match the eye-catching wrap that mimics the color and shine of the precious metal. Surprisingly, some parts of the car escaped the golden treatment. Those include the red brake calipers and the black aerodynamic elements including the fender vents, front splitter, rear wing, and rear diffuser. The gold theme continues inside, though, with accents on the seats and door panels.

Interestingly, the owner has another widebody C7 Corvette in blue that they use as a daily driver – which might mean that the gold car is their weekend ride. Got every base covered then, don’t they?

    forget about the gold wrap and blah blah blah… I am seriously starting to think the C7 is the best looking Corvette ever. Im sure the C8 will look good, but so far from all the camo images, the C7 is looking more like Corvette perfection

      The C6 is still my personal favorite, at least on the exterior side of things. I liked the simplicity, cleaner look, not so many vents and good looking from all angles. The C6 Grand Sport and Z06 were perfection to me.

  • TB

    I gotta say…that’s pretty sharp! I think that color goes well with the lines on that ride.
