Production of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 might not go as planned due to the coronavirus pandemic, but tuning companies are still gearing up to deliver aftermarket parts and kits for the American sports car. The folks over at Sigala Designs are working on a new widebody kit for the Corvette C8 and their latest teaser suggests that it will turn the mid-engined Chevy into an even more aggressive beast.
This widebody kit appears to be of the hardcore variety. Not only Sigala is widening the fenders, but it’s also designing wider side skirts, a front splitter that extends several inches in front of the nose, a race-inspired diffuser, and a big rear wing.
The CAD design also seems to include a twin spoiler on the rear deck, massive outlets into the rear fenders, and vented front fenders and hood.
The rendering at the end provides a better picture as to what to expect.
It’s by far the most menacing kit for the Corvette C8 and I have a feeling that we won’t see a more aggressive version until Chevrolet introduces the ZR1 or the Zora a few years from now.
Sigala’s kit, called the C8RR, will become available in the fall of 2020. Hopefully that’s when Corvette C8 production will be back on track with no shortage of supply.
