The C8 Corvette looks mighty aggressive right out of the box, with mid-engine proportions and sharp styling front to back. However, for those customers that need even more visual punch, a new Pandem Rocket Bunny widebody kit can take the C8 Corvette to a whole new level, as evidenced by the following video.
Clocking in at 8 minutes, 39 seconds, the video documents the process that goes into fitting the C8 Corvette with the new widebody kit. As one might expect, the work needed to get this kit properly installed is extensive, with plenty of cutting and sanding to get it looking just so.
Taking responsibility for the install is Fit Automotive out of Villas, Florida, which completed the project for customer Swan River Racing. The install process starts with Fit Automotive test-fitting the new components onto the factory body panels, as well as removal of the inner fender liners. Next, the cutting begins with select bits and pieces chopped off around the front end, side skirts, and rear to make sure everything lines up as intended.
Indeed, the amount of custom, hands-on work required to get this widebody onto the factory body is ample, but as soon as the painted components are finally tacked onto place, it all starts to make sense.
In addition to the widebody treatment, this upgraded C8 Corvette is also running on a set of aftermarket wheels, which present a bright gold finish that really pops against the red of the body.
The last half of the video shows the completed vehicle out on the street, giving us an eyeful of the awesomeness that is a widebody C8 Corvette in full street fighter guise.

As a reminder, the C8 Corvette Stingray is motivated by the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, which is located just behind the cabin and rated at 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Under the body panels, the C8 Corvette is based on the GM Y2 platform, while production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
