As great as the Chevy Corvette looks from the factory, the folks over at ZR1 Body Kits have just made a killer widebody conversion for the American sports car inspired by the C6.R Corvette racing cars. The kit is available in two varieties, a more aggressive body kit – Extreme Style ZR1 – for the C6 Z06 Grand Sport that retails for $7,599; while the more mild OEM-style ZR1 kit is $6,999.

Both kits are constructed out of fiberglass using compression molds, a style similar to OEM GM body panels and use all factory mounting points. The ZR6X Extreme Body kit widens the car by 1.5-inches (compared to the OEM ZR1 fenders) offering plenty of room for wider rubber underneath.

For those looking to spend a few more bucks and to make their Vette really stand out, ZR1 Body Kits offers a carbon fiber option for the front lip, side skirts and diffusers.

This is by far one of the nicest Corvettes we’ve ever laid eyes on. Its menacing stance along with its wheel fitment makes it a killer package. We’d love to see one of these prowling down our streets.
