C8 Corvette and 2020 Supra "Widebody Twins" Are a Thing of Beauty

Many of us happen to share a bubble, at least as far as the automotive side of the Internet is concerned. Well, the rendering we have here can be considered the in-a-nutshell version of the 2020 model year tuning market: say hello to the widebody versions of the C8 Corvette and the Mk V Toyota Supra.

The adventure we're talking about kicked off last year, as, for instance, north of 60 modded Supras took SEMA by storm back in November.

And with the C8 Chevrolet Corvette deliveries having kicked off in February, the aftermarket side of the industry hasn't had enough time to work on the mid-engined machine. As such, the current builds of the sort range from the first bagged example to twin-turbo projects (the factory ECU puzzle hasn't been solved yet) and drag pack goodies like the first 15-inch conversion.

Now, the said projects go hand in hand with a plethora of renderings, which brings us back to the pixel portrait that now occupies our screen.

Given our fetish for all things aftermarket, we've covered both the 'Vette and the Supra kits, but Arnold Verghese, the digital artist behind them, has done more than placing the duo in a single image.

As such, the artist is working on production-ready incarnations of these widebody kits. Since, for instance, the wheel wells are now closer to what a racecar would offer, the artist is going back to the drawing rendering board.

"It will still be in design phase, but the renders will be close to what it would look in real if anyone were to build them. I will be designing the kits in 3 stages with the plan to hopefully make it interchangeable and modular," Verghese explains.

While the said stages bring various levels of visual aggression, the artist still needs scan data for the vehicles, so here's to hoping the aficionado gets his data as soon as possible.

These 2 cars are pretty hot at the moment! Which is why I'll be designing these 2 with kits from the ground up to be close to production ready. It will still be in design phase, but the renders will be close to what it would look in real if anyone were to build them. I will be designing the kits in 3 stages with the plan to hopefully make it interchangeable and modular. Stage 1 - Lip kit including front lip, side skirt, rear diffuser and trunk lip. Stage 2 - Front and rear bumper with rear wing and diffuser. Stage 3 - Wider front and rear fenders. I am currently learning nurbs in Alias studio as well so CAD data would be easier to model. Only thing is scan data...anyone out there who has scanned their A90 or C8?  #supramk5 #supranation #a90supra #toyotagazooracing#toyotaracing #toyotasupramkv #a90#c8 #c8corvette #midenginecorvette #2020corvette #stingray #chevycorvettec8 #c7 #c6 #c5 #corvetteforum #corvette #corvetteworld #corvettenation #vette #vettehub #corvettestingray #avdesign #arnolddesign
