The Chevrolet Corvette is a great sports car and its relatively affordable price tag means it is a common sight. So what to do if you want a Corvette but also want to stand out from the crowd?

Easy, get it re-skinned from a coach-building company. There is no shortage of companies providing this service either, because Callaway, Rossi, Genadi and Soleil (just to name a few) can all make you a Corvette that will be rare and unique.

Now, a German company by the name Endora has also revealed sketches of its interpretation of the C6 Corvette. The model is referred to as SC-1, and it certainly has taken design inspiration from the 1960s. It mimics the coke-bottle look of the 1963 Corvette Stingray, with some sprinkling of the 1966 Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada thrown in for good measure. The headlamps however look to have been borrowed from the 2002 Acura NSX.

The design looks wonderful, but we will have to wait to see how it translates onto a real car, since so far only sketches exist.

Under the skin it will be like any other Corvette, so you’d either have the base 6.2-liter V8 with 437 hp, or the 7.0-liter V8 with 512 hp. The ZR-1 based 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 with 647 hp will also be offered. Basically, you provide them with your choice of Corvette and they will re-clothe it for you.

Pricing and availability has not been announced yet, but we can’t wait to see a finished version. If it looks as good as the sketches suggest it will, the SC-1 will turn heads everywhere it goes.
