HULK got a new car.


This Acid Green C6 Corvette Widebody Kit makes the Vette look like HULK's daily driver. Just as angry as the Marvel Superstar figure, this Acid Green C6 Corvette Widebody Kit looks second to none. Jean Michel Gachet (Facebook profile https://www.facebook.com/jeanmichel.gachet.1) is a colossal Corvette fan. So he was so kind to send us a couple of pictures of his car that rolls now in New York, NY. The LOMA GT2 Widebody kit for the C6 Corvette models is, without doubt, the best Corvette body kit on the market, period. All parts fit perfectly, and the car does not look like it was constructed in a backyard garage.

Jean Michel Gachet is now one of the proud owners of a LOMA Corvette that will separate him from the rest because they look gigantic from every angle and because the car is performance-wise now on a totally different level. Look at these massive rims on the front and on the rear! While the tire width does not much change compared to a Z06 or ZR1, the rims' depth does massively. On top of that, he decided to go with this Acid Green color that pops out so strong that even the guys on the ISS will not be missing it once it hits the street of New York. Overall, an excellent-looking C6 Corvette, and thank you for your Google Review, Michel.

OVERVIEW:


So, do you still think it's a C5 and 11/16ths?" asked Corvette assistant chief engineer Tadge Juechter in a half-joking, half-serious tone. We had just spent two days driving the newest Corvette—the so-called C6—around the hills of southern Virginia and at Virginia International Raceway, and Juechter was repeating, almost verbatim, a headline we'd placed on a preview story of the car. It had probably ticked him off then, but it wasn't showing now.


Although most new-generation Corvettes have been a dramatic departure from the previous version, the C6 Corvette is not a clean-sheet design. And so what? It only proves what we already knew: With the C5, Chevy got most of it right. Even in its last year of production, 2004—after an eight-year run—the C5 Corvette was judged a 10Best Car by us. Corvette chief engineer Dave Hill alluded to that point when he said, "We're not inventing—we're perfecting."


And perfect they did, making a mix of dramatic and detailed changes to the C5 and creating a Corvette that's better in every way.

It's now a tidier package—shrunk by 5.1 inches and riding on a wheelbase 1.2 inches longer. The wide rear flanks have been trimmed an inch. The result is quite dramatic. The Corvette has shed its extravagant proportions for a much cleaner body and looks more aggressive. The body is still fiberglass, but the design team spent hours in a wind tunnel searching for ways to reduce drag and wind noise (see sidebar "Aero Tricks").

Then there's the engine (also detailed in a sidebar, "The Small-Block Keeps Chugging Along"). The basics are pretty sweet: A 2.6-millimeter increase of the bore bumped displacement from 5.7 to 6.0 liters. It has 50 more horsepower and 25 more pound-feet of torque (40 more pound-feet in automatics), elevating the output to 400 in both departments. The redline increases by 500 clicks to 6500 rpm, the same limit as in the old Z06. The gear linkage of the six-speed manual transmission has been updated for shorter throws and a more precise feel.
