Liberty Walk Releases New Corvette C8 Body Kit9
Liberty Walk has made a name for itself when it comes to building outlandish widebody kits for all kinds of vehicles. While some of the more controversial kits by the Japanese tuning company feature the Ferrari F40 and Lamborghini Aventador, Liberty Walk has also turned its sights to the Chevy Corvette and now offers a C8 body kit.
Intending to give the C8 Stingray a hotter look, this Liberty Walk widebody kit is hard to miss. The front bumper features a huge, integrated front splitter, while a monster wing is affixed to the Vette’s rear, while an aggressive rear diffuser is also present and accounted for. Of course, no widebody kit is complete without wider fenders, and this C8 body kit is no different, with large front and rear fender flares.
An aggressive C8 body kit like this doesn’t come cheap. The complete kit, which includes the front bumper, side diffuser, rear bumper, version 1 of the rear wing, and the front and rear fender flares, will set you back $19,580 USD. A carbon fiber reinforced body kit is also available for $21,780.
Liberty Walk will also sell the rear wing separately for $4,400 USD, or $6,600 USD for the carbon fiber reinforced model.
The C8 Vette has been an extremely popular vehicle for widebody kits. In fact, companies like Rocket Bunny/Pandem and Street Hunter Designs have already rendered and created C8 body kits for customers looking for an extra wow factor for their mid-engine Vette.
As a reminder, the Corvette C8 Stingray is powered by the 6.2L LT2 V8 gasoline engine that produces 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Those figures increase by five horsepower and pound-feet of torque when equipped with the high-performance, dual-mode exhaust system (RPO code NPP), which has been equipped on most C8 Stingray units built thus far.
As for structure, all C8 variants ride on the GM Y2 platform, while production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.

I’m not big on widebody stuff but LW is another one of our Specialty Automotive Entrepreneurs who paved the way for something truly original that people will pay for. It is what keeps our hobby/industry alive and well.
I’ll pay $2000 for 4 fender flares.
Does anyone know what method brought those wheels out that far ?
Spacers? Offset wheels ?
One corvette club member has 22mm spacers, and wheels not hanging out of the fenders.
I purchased factory Z06 21×13 rear (20×10 front) wheels for my Stingray.
I expect that they will not extend past the body.
Let us know how your new wheels fit!
Sort of resembles Ivan Tampi’s version which I like the best.
It’s like looking at a really fat naked broad with bulges everywhere. Somehow, you have to look but then the horrid image gets seared in your brain…
Yikes. Clearly from the school of “more is better”, which in this case is absolutely not true. With a few minor exceptions, GM designers did a pretty awesome job with the C8, as well as the C7 before it. Slopping this nonsense all over the car brings the styling from something that true and trained automobile designers came up with after years of collaboration and cooperation, to something drawn in the margins of a school book by a bored 14 year old Gran Tourismo enthusiast during social studies class. But to each his own I suppose.
