Last week we told you all about the Corvettes that Chevrolet brought with them to the Las Vegas Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show to share with fans, and today we've compiled a list of our favorite Corvettes at the event. Unfortunately, with an event this insanely large, there's no way we could see everything, but we've found some beyond-impressive specimens that we figured you, the reader, might enjoy. Check it out!
Hawk Performance gave away this awesome brand-new Corvette at its booth today. Out of four finalists chosen to attend SEMA on Hawk's dime, one was chosen through Ron Fellow's drawing of a ping pong ball. Number three was drawn, and the lucky winner came forward to collect his prize. The Corvette was built in conjunction with Bilstein, Denso, Eibach, Falken, K&N, Magnaflow, Mothers, Optima Battery, Royal Purple, and Superchips. It is equipped with a complete Hawk Performance Brake System including the all-new Talon calipers, Quiet Slot rotors, HPS performance brake pads, and dozens of other upgrades.
Pre-SEMA, we let you know that Nowicki Autosport Design would be on-hand at the Mobil 1 booth with their Concept7 Corvette - a 2014 Stingray project car, which features a smorgasbord of carbon fiber treatments including a heat extractor hood, front grille center bar, fender gill inserts, rear taillight bezels, rear spoiler, rear lower diffuser, A-pillar trim, rear quarter air intakes, and wheel house flares built to accommodate larger wheels. Yours truly spoke to designer Jeff Nowicki who was beyond excited about the Vette and we agreed that pictures are far from doing the beautiful car justice.
Of course, Lingenfelter had a hot booth at SEMA showcasing their newest products and six awesome Lingenfelter-enhanced vehicles. Besides two C7s, we found this awesome Pacific Blue 630 horsepower 1967 Corvette coupe. Referred to as Karl Kustom Corvette "LZ067," the '67 features a Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Engine Package, Karl Kustom Corvettes '67 Coupe body, '67-style pleated seats, micro-perforated leather door accents, a back-up camera and lights, and ZR1 wheels wrapped in Nitto tires.
The LG Motorsports C7 Phase 1 was attracting attention at the Koni booth all day today as well. With LG Motorsports carbon splitter and side skirts, LG GT2 gloss black wheels, LG Motorsports Super Pro long-tube headers and lowering bolts, and Koni single adjustable shocks, the sleek and clean C7 provided an understated version of the newest Corvette, which seemed to be very well received by Chevrolet fans.
Last but certainly not last, the HRE display was graced by the presence of a stunning 2014 Corvette. Though the car was stock according to the folks at HRE, we couldn't help but love the look of the blue HRE wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires keeping the Vette planted on the showroom floor. It's just a stunning and unique look for the new Corvette, but we realize some might not be into the use of brightly-colored wheels. So which side are you on?
