Have a look at a new racing project from Frankie's Garage in southern Germany:







Some years ago they started to compete with the C4 in some european national GT racing series. They had to learn that the C4 body produces lots of upforce at higher speeds (I suppose this was the reason for Callaway's new C4 front).
The solution here is kind of radical. I don't claim it's nice, but at least it looks interesting. They call it 'DELAGO' Corvette



Now they are making a street version as well:

:smokin:

You're right it's looking strange also to my taste.
But no, it's the real thing just a totally different front.

you can get a standard engine installed or they build custom engines according to the customer's ideas.
Everything what is on the market available is possible.

Hi guys,
the street version was only build once by order of a customer.
But Frankies Garage was not able to pass the homologation for public roads! So this was the job of the owner and he did it after various problems.
So it is a very brutal single copy.:partyon:

The first silver picture reminds me somewhat of the 80's Delorean... good ole' sheet metal look.

Ummm but look at the C3 behind that silver C4 race car! Now, that's what the picture should be focusing on, real-none fingered up-Corvette!

Heck, pink ain't my dig but I wouldn't give it a second thought to hop in that Pink-Panther!!! Grrrrrrrowl!

That custom hood is SWEEEET and yes Patrick, I DO love that spoiler, it fits in with the car! ;) (but I dunno if those guys should be leaning on it!) :laughing:
