For some years now, the very American has also been undermining the primacy of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The eighth generation has become an “exotic” supercar in all respects, with incredible performance and the engine moved centrally to obtain a more balanced set-up.
Now, the German tuner SlyStyle Performance has decided to further improve this formula by intervening on the Chevy’s aesthetics and powertrain.
A razor sharp Cabriolet
The interventions on the Corvette (shown here in a Cabriolet example) started with the bodywork. SlyStyle added carbon splitters and fins to make the American supercar look even more edgy.
In addition to these appendages, the new rear spoiler is added which gives the car further stability at high speeds. According to the tuner, in fact, these changes not only have aesthetic purposes, but are also functional to improve aerodynamics.
Specifically, the new front elements have increased the deportance 50 kg, while the rear ones of another 80 kg.
This is accompanied by new Drago alloy wheels in satin black produced by Schmidt 20 “at the front and 21” at the rear on 255/30 R20 tires at the front and 325/25 R21 at the rear.
Furthermore, thetrim it has been lowered by 20 mm on the front. Only for models equipped with the Z51 package it is possible to request the rear sports suspension which lowers the car by a further 20 mm.
An extra boost
SlyStyle says it has also significantly overhauled the engine. In the production Chevrolet homologated in Europe, the 6.2 V8 aspirated produces 482 CV and 613 Nm and allows a 0-100 km / h acceleration of 3.5 seconds and a top speed exceeding 310 km / h.
The tuner installed a high-performance K&N filter, 87mm throttle body, a new intake system and a sports exhaust system that includes 114mm diameter tailpipes.
Unfortunately, the workshop does not mention the final technical data, citing only an acceleration from 100 to 200 km / h 0.5 seconds lower than the original Corvette, or 9.6 seconds. As a result, the Chevrolet tuned by SlyStyle should also have improved 0-100 acceleration and overall engine response at all revs.
