If you wish the current-generation C6 Corvette would ever don the sheetmetal of the mighty C2 Corvette of the 60s, your dream may have just come true: Michigan-based Rossi Motor Company is creating just the thing.
Titled the Rossi SixtySix, the super-retro speed machine carries a lot of the styling cues from the Stringray, including the split in the rear window, the body contours, as well as the traditional Corvette “gills” just behind the front wheels. We can even see the chrome bumpers – a true homage to the architecture of the times. The only design element not carried over is the front end.
The SixtySix will also get minor changes to the interior, with an updated center console, shift boot, among other adjustments. Unfortunately, pictures of the proposed interior aren’t currently available. Rossi goes on to say that the transformation of a C6 into a SixtySix will take about five days, with a cost of $130,000 including a brand new C6. What’s more, there has been no announcement regarding whether the coachbuild will actually begin production on its first-ever model, elevating the anxiety level by a few unwanted levels.
Whether you take this car as a dream come true or as outright Corvette blasphemy, there is no denying its curb appeal.
