    Hello, Kit car gurus, who makes this kit for the C5/C6 vette?

    Hello everyone,
    I saw this kit on the kitcarmag website and have spent hours trying to find it online to no avail. Does anyone know who makes this kit for the C6 or C5 vette?

    Any help you guys can give will be appreciated!
    Thanks!

    "I also thought these were very exotic. They remind me of the Saleen S7. If you copy one of the pictures from that phot diary into paint or something and blow it up you can just barely read Arts Corvettes on the rear wing. I did a web search and I think that he is located in San Diego possibly but there wasn't a website. "

    I have really search the web on several occasions and have found very very little. Apparently these cars were debuted at Sema in 2005 or 2006. From the pictures I saved to my home laptop the insides were extremely customized as well. Dash, video screens, etc. That looks like it's a complete rebody instead of a simple bolt on ground affects package.

    I did a search just now and found more info:
    http://www.usatoday.com/money/autos/...ors-usat_x.htm There's a story on vertical doors and a picture of a red corvette with the customers name. Looks like the same body kit.

    Here's a custom red one for sale at verticaldoors.com, but they want $119k. Doesn't have the fully done interior of the silver ones at sema and it looks like a slightly less menacing bodykit so there must be some variations.

    Hope that all helps.

    Thank you SO MUCH sbsport, yes that is the same car. It also does look like a complete mod instead of a bolt on. At least I now know what kind of kit it is. Thanks again!

    Here are a few pics of that car at this years knott's show, I am not sure that the company that makes the door lifts is the same one that produces the Body kits, I could be wrong though.

    Thanks too rundlc

    Do you know of any other kit car maker that makes kits for the C5 vette? I would think that since the body is fiberglass and THIN metal that more companies would take advantage of this and make replacement kits for it. Kind of like a modern day Fiero.

    When we spied this sleek convertible at SEMA, we figured it was based on the C6. Actually, it's a "send-off", Art says, for the C5. ASAP, in the true spirit of its name, just couldn't wait.

    "We wanted to get to SEMA this year, so we built our car on a C5. We decided to go out of the C5s with a boom, to come up with something trick."

    The starting point was a '98 convertible. The chassis is recognizable. The body is basically a prototype. "My son and I sat down and sketched it up," Art says. "Drew has a little Pasadena Art Center in him. He's got some little bit of Autocad training, solids modeling training. So, we both kind of dreamed up the design."

    Thanks Sbsport! Wow you guys really know your stuff!

    As for the kit I dont like the rear, and from what I have read they dont have it in production yet. I am going to try and call Art and see if they will just sell the front and sides when they get it into production. Or if it will be a "turn key" only thing.

    Thanks again guys!
