Corvette 2017 C7 Grand Sport Heritage Edition

Recommended Posts

When I first saw this on the Chevy website a month or so ago, I knew I had to build a duplication of this Heritage Edition C7 Stingray Grand Sport.

Lot's of custom building went into make this Revell Snaptite base Stingray Corvette into a Grand Sport. The side fender vents are styled diffferent, the wider 4" rear wheel wells had to be created, brake vents and covers for the upper rear vents, front airdam splitter, side rocker splitters and rear spoiler splitters added, those were a major pain to do and hard to see too for all the effort. Wheels are exact Cup style wheels, a link to Plamoz.com provided by another member here made all the difference to make this a pretty cool replica build. 

Paint, Duplicolor Artic Polar White, Electric Blue and Electron Red for the color accents.

The inset images in the top pictures are from the Chevy website representing the actual car.

Wow!  That's a lot of work on subtle changes, but they really stand out once you point them out.  Well done.

Hi,

Very very nice!

I can see this becoming an HRM trans kit.

Everything you've done is hot, those wheels are killer!

Well done . I see that my buddy tatoocorvette hasn't seen this, I'll let him know he'll flip over this.
