Official: Corvette ZR1 by RK Design

Corvette ZR1 by RK Design

RK Design unveiled a custom Corvette ZR1 for the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon. While the new Corvette has only just been released, the old car still looks extremely fresh. Especially the top-of-the-range ZR1 variant. Of course, its quite rare to see a left-hand drive Corvette on the streets of Japan, a country of predominantly left-hand drive cars. Its even rarer to see a modified version!

The RK Design Corvette ZR1 features a range of simple updates that give in a devilish new look. The aggressive updates include a new front bumper with carbon fiber side winglets and a new set of circular fog lamps. Carbon fiber winglets have also been added to the rear wheel arch. At the back we get a new rear diffuser, dual central exhaust exists, a slightly larger rear wing and a carbon fiber roof diffuser.

RK Design have also added their own set of magnesium forged alloy wheels. The Corvette’s interior has also received a complete overhaul with a new grey alcantara dash board and quilted alcatara rear parcel shelf. The alcantara is accented by black leather and black plastic. Stitching is also accented in a light shade of yellow.

Performance enhancements are as yet unknown. The Corvette ZR1 features a 6.2 liter V8 powerplant. The LS9 is supercharged for a peak output of 638hp and 819Nm of torque. The matte grey and carbon fibre match the nuts performance figures!
