Right out of the box, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 is a truly head-turning piece of design, with a wide, low stance, and attractive mid-engine proportions. Now, a new tuning company plans on making the new Vette even more visually stunning with this wild widebody kit.
The company is called Xeigen, and according to its recent Facebook page posts, it hopes to offer this crazy new styling upgrade sometime next year. The look takes inspiration from the C3-generation Corvette race cars that blasted around racetracks in the ‘70s, specifically mentioning racecar builder and racer John Greenwood, as well as the C3 Vettes of the IMSA series.
The inspiration is most obvious with the Corvette C8 rendering in a bold Stars & Stripes livery, but the company also rendered up the new body kit in dark gray, orange, and yellow.
The new Xeigen Corvette C8 widebody kit lends Chevy’s mid-engine sports car a distinctive, exotic flavor. The lines are crisp and the creases are deep, with a technical, geometric approach that brings the various styling elements up to 11. The front splitter is sharp and pointy, while a prominent bulge runs down the hood. The rear end is massively flared, looking like it’ll house some steamroller-sized rubber, while an enormous GT-style rear wing dominates the rear end. Also, check out that roof-mounted intake leading to the mid-mounted engine.
For now, Xeigen’s new Corvette C8 body kit is nothing more than a set of renderings, but the new tuner wants to change that very soon, and plans to document the development through social media. What’s more, the company says it’ll complement the new ultra-aggressive styling with “performance parts to lead to a supercar more powerful, faster… more brutal!”
No doubt, this is just one of many new aftermarket styling upgrades headed down the pipe for the new Corvette C8. We can’t wait to see what comes next.
