The latest Corvette generations are without a doubt better than their predecessors in terms of technology. But in terms of design, the classic looks more advantageous. Especially if the sports car has been a little “modernized”.

In mid-January, Mecum will auction a 1968 Chevrolet Corvette C3 restomod. This 53-year-old sports car has been thoroughly modified, which affected not only its appearance, but also its handling.

The sports car is based on a reinforced Street Shop chassis with a fully independent suspension from the C7 model. The car is driven by a 505-horsepower LS7 V8 engine from GM with seven liters. It is combined with a 6-speed gearbox and rear-wheel drive. The body of the car is painted in an interesting shade called Mosaic Black – it is black, but with its own “twist”. The wheels are made of carbon fiber.

The interior of the classic sports car also underwent refinement: bright colors were added to it, which works in contrast with the strict appearance. Black leather dominates here, but orange stitching and seat belts of the same color draw all the attention.

For the “classics” of the American car industry, the decision is quite bold. For such a Corvette C3 they are going to help out 200-235 thousand dollars

Previously, the Land Rover Defender 110 SUV was turned into a restomod. The car has become more powerful and attractive. The combination of colors that the tuners have chosen for the exterior of the car looks advantageous.
