While Chevrolet keeps making history with its C8 generation Corvette, which comprises the entry-level Stingray, the electrified and all-wheel drive E-Ray, and the track-focused Z06, with the ZR1 set to join the lineup shortly, the model continues falling into the hands of digital artists all over the world.
We would've thought that by now, the rendering crowd would have had enough of it. After all, production started four years ago at the Bowling Green factory in Kentucky, and since the first Stingray hit the assembly line, the Z06 and E-Ray have expanded the offering.

And it is the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that has had its pixels rearranged. These CGIs came from 412donklife on Instagram, with the apparent caption that a donk is a 1971-1976 Caprice and Impala on large wheels, and it is certainly something to write home about, as you don't see such a proposal every day, be it real or digital.

The new purple look makes it stand out from a mile away. The hue covers all body panels with a few inserts that have been kept black, like the rear diffuser, front bumper inserts, side skirts, and so on. For a more sinister stance, it has smoked lighting units, and the thing that wraps up the virtual makeover is the new alloy set.

Sporting an intricate design and using the same purple hue, the wheels were digitally sourced from Lexani and are part of their Aries series. A quick look on the company's website reveals they're available in 20 and 22 inches, in multiple finishes. While the rendering artist did not say the exact size of the ones equipping the said 'Vette Z06, they are obviously larger than 22 inches. They were wrapped in rubberband tires to fit under the arches without chopping.

If this Corvette has inspired you to do something similar to yours, we won't be the ones to stop you. Nevertheless, we must remind you that any car on large alloys shod in ultra-thin tires is far less comfortable than its original self. On top of that, the turning radius is also affected by this mod. But if you can live with that, then by all means, do your thing.

A brand-new Z06 will set you back at least $112,700 in the United States, excluding destination and dealer fees. It is a true supercar that costs only a fraction of a more exotic one. Its 5.5L flat-plane crank V8 produces 670 horsepower at 8,400 rpm and is good for 460 pound-feet (624 Nm) of torque at 6,300 rpm. With the Z07 Performance Package, the model takes only 2.6 seconds to 60 mph (97 kph), so it is one second quicker than the legendary Ferrari Enzo.
