With the sixth generation of the Chevrolet Corvette coming to an end, D2FORGED wheels had to hook it up with a new set rims. Installing new wheels is the most common way to tune or customize your car these days, and when you spend the extra cash on a name brand like D2FORGED, you will surely be pleased with the results. Even more so when you factor in the carbon fiber package found on this Chevy Corvette Z06.
The wheel specialists from D2Forged have hooked up this Chevrolet Corvette with a new set of their MB1 rims. Wrapped in high performance tires, the wheels measure 20×10 up front while extra wide 20×13-inch rims were installed at the rear. They feature a matte black face with titanium flange stripe, along with hand painted center caps holding the D2 emblem. The staggered style of rims have been popular choices this year when tuning cars, however we’re surprised this MB1 set doesn’t have a deep dish or chrome. Most tuned Corvettes look great with a deep lip for the rear wheels, especially if it’s going to be 13 inches wide.
We all know a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar is fast, but how does the notorious Prancing Horse match up to some of the competition that is less than half the price. We have a video here from drag times, recording a stock Ferrari 458 Italia racing an Audi RS6 with 750 horsepower, an AMS tuned Nissan GTR-R with 600 HP, and a Lingenfelter Corvette ZR1 carrying 750 horsepower. These three sports cars race the Ferrari 458 on a 1 mile run, so hit the jump to see how it all went down!
A killer wide body kit conversion has been made for the Chevrolet Corvette, from the tuners at ZR1 Body Kits. The Chevy Corvette already looks great from the factory, but this look has been inspired by the C6.R Corvette racing cars, featuring an aggressive stance and exterior styling. It is available in two varieties, the more aggressive called the Extreme Style ZR1 for the C6 Z06 Grand Sport retails for $7,599, while the tuning firm also offers the mild OEM-style ZR1 body kit for $6,999. Both of these performance packages are made from fiberglass using compression molds, and is similar to what the GM OEM manufacturers use for their body panels, while keeping the factory mounting points.
The tuners at D2Forged took the Chevy Corvette ZR1 and decided to improve a sports car that doesn’t really need extra work. If you expected to see a complete Corvette ZR1 tuning package here, well I’m sorry to say this isn’t it. The tuning firm specializes in aftermarket wheels for styling cars, and hooked up this Chevy Corvette with a nice set and some new paint. These wheels offered by D2Forged are available in either 19 or 20-inches, and come with a gloss black center, chrome lip, and chrome rivets. Now the paint job is what caught my attention, the wheels just add a sporty look to the Corvette.
