Special Coachbuilt Corvettes
Corvette Z06 chassis

We've seen several Special Coachbuilt Corvettes in the past by a.o. Pininfarina, Vignale, Ghia and Scaglietti, but the current model, the C6, has rapidly become the most popular Corvette amongst coachbuilders. The sixth generation Corvette - designed with the European customer in mind - is considered the best 'Vette' ever by car enthusiasts all over the world.

We'd rather leave judgement to the customers, but what we do like to point out, is that the relatively lowtech C6 platform is a very good base for some very interesting Coachbuilt Specials. Let's have a look at seven reskinned Corvettes by four coachbuilders.
