    Ferrari 575 Superamerica Rebody from a Corvette C4 Coupe

    I have been searching for quite some time around the net and shows looking for a Ferrari look re-body kit for a C4 Vette. Something more or less along the lines of a Model 575 Superamerica. Has anyone seen or heard any rumors?

    In my opinion, this would be an excellent rebody for an older C4 Vette Coupe. Chevy made tons of 1984-1996 Corvette C4s they are plentiful and can be found for a reasonable amount of cash these days. You have a good performance oriented 350 V8 and Independent suspension just for a start. Not to mention that you could also sell all those extra body pieces, lights and etc. that you don’t need from the Vette to help in the expense for the build. The rear of the Vette is longer than the 575 but by removing the gas tank, replacing it with a fuel cell, some rework on the exhaust, and get rid of the spare under the car. You could easily remove about 12 inches or more from the rear of the C4’s without any modification to suspension components.

    My hat is off to all out there who spend countless hours and expense widening the suspension and lengthening those Ferios and MR2s. to build a F355s and the up and coming 360s. Unfortunately, as you all know, there are many of these kits that never are completed. I would presume, due to the extensive amount of labor involved as well as the high cost of all the modifying.

    I am hoping that one of you fiberglass mold makers out there will see the potentional market out there for a Ferrari rebody for a C4 Vette or at least give it some serious thought.

    Yes, that is also a beautifull car.

    I thought of the Superamerica 575 due to the glass top that is simular to the removable glass top on the Vette. Although it doesn't swing around like the Superamerica. But you can't have everything!!

    I recently posted a thread concerning viper convertions on the same corvette donors due to the same facts, they are easy to find, very resonable priced, and the performance mods are endless. (thinking about what I might would like to tackles after my F40 is mostly done) But I would MUCH rather have one of these two Ferrari rebodies on same donor. ;D I don't understand why this is not happening..is it due to the Ferrari copyright 5-0???
