Now that Luke Lonberger has gotten his hands dirty helping build Conrad Grunewald’s Hankook Drift Chevrolet Camaro, it looks like he’s interesting in getting his hands behind the wheel of his own sideways machine. A render has surfaced of a drift Chevrolet Corvette sporting Lonberger’s shop logos and full Hankook theme.

A Chevrolet Corvette seems to be a natural vehicle to campaign alongside Grunewald’s Camaro. It also helps that Grunewald use to campaign a Corvette, possibly lending Lonberger a lot of data and info on what exactly works and what doesn’t. There’s no arguing that there’s always room for another competitor and another domestic further expands drifting’s involvement and fan base.

We’ll be really interested to see if this Corvette comes to fruition and if Lonberger really will be behind the wheel. He promises that more information will be released “when the time comes,” whenever that may be. Hankook could definitely use a winning car though, with their GT-R and Camaro not quite doing what they hoped this season.
