Sand-Wrapped Corvette C8 Sits Low On Vossen LC2-C1 Wheels10
The Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray looks great right from the factory, but that isn’t stopping some owners from adding their own personal flair with all sorts of custom touches. Such is the case with the bespoke Corvette C8 featured here, which looks to be strutting its stuff in a new body wrap, slammed suspension, and aftermarket wheels.
Let’s start with the rolling gear. In the corners, this Corvette C8 is riding on a set of Vossen LC2-C1 wheels in a Marbled Gloss Clear finish. These wheels have a unique appearance, with a split-spoke inner design radiating outwards into a turbine-like outer design, creating a technical-looking effect that enhances the car’s slammed stance (more on that in a bit). Per Vossen’s website, the LC2-C1 is available in a variety of different sizes, including diameter sizing ranging between 19 inches and 24 inches, and width sizing between 8.5 inches and 13 inches. The LC2-C1 features monoblock construction, and is offered in 48 different paint finishes. Pricing starts at $2,000 per wheel.
Moving on, let’s talk about that ride height. This Corvette C8 is absolutely slammed to the ground, riding just a few millimeters off the pavement thanks Accuair suspension components. The wheels are tucked-up nicely under the fenders, with the radial outer rim of the wheel enhancing the look even further.
Meanwhile, the body is covered in a a new sand-colored wrap from inozetek. The color definitely helps set this thing off, especially in combination with the Marbled Gloss Clear wheels and black trim bits. The roof is also done in black, placing even more emphasis on the lower body lines. Finally, a selection of aftermarket aero components from Racing Sport Concepts finish it off, throwing in a splash of carbon fiber front to back.

As a reminder, the Corvette C8 Stingray features the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine for motivation, while under the skin is the GM Y2 platform. Production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.

Would it be possible to nix the “As a reminder….” postscript on every article? 4 model years into production, we definitely know about the engine.
I think some of these customs look terrible. The stock C 8 is gorgeous as it is.
Too close to the ground — damage to
I think all the comments are negative for a good reason and on top of that Vossen Wheels are totally ridiculously priced out of sight the stock Trident Wheels look better best comment was gasoline fired and after that I won’t buy another Corvette keep your electric junk
Will someone PLEASE, PLEASE explain to me the attraction of these cars lowered to ground so much they look like their suspension is shot? I watch these cable car programs where these guys are “restomoding” cars and trucks and the very first thing they do before they do anything else is lower it to “give it that stance” , thereby in my opinion, totally destroying the beauty and functionality of the vehicle. Am I alone in my opinion or do others feel as I do?
Obviously a fashion statement with no thought to practical use what so ever. This example is said to have an adjustable air ride, so the “slammed” look may be restricted to photo ops and parking places (does the door clear the curb?). I have seen no reviews of the ride quality an handling of those aftermarket suspensions. How about those import cars with ridiculous negative camber? I can’t imagine they get more than a few thousand miles out of a set of tires riding on the inside three square inches or how they handle that way.
My experiance with the C8 is that the stock height is just adequate to clear gentle speed bumps. Any lower and the front lift would be mandatory unless you just got used to that scraping noise.
What a wonderfully drivable vehicle…ugly wheels and slammed so low it becomes a “trailer queen” or otherwise useless, this car isn’t worth the print.
It’s amazing how uninformed and illiterate some people can be when it comes to vehicles. The Lord and air suspension that you see on this Corvette is adjustable in so many ways you have no idea. It can be adjusted for a smooth ride on the road as well as giving performance at the same time. Then it can be turned around and dialed up for the track in order to handle business there as well. Instead of forming an opinion how about doing some research first and then you will understand why people do this to their cars. Notice how I said how people do this to “their car”.. not your car. Go to a car show and ask one guy for a ride that has air suspension and see if your opinion is the same when you come back
Hey Car Enthusiast — maybe uninformed, but illiterate is definitely the wrong word.
