This vehicle started its life as a 1999 Chevrolet Corvette C5, but after lots of work, it was transformed into an off-road dune buggy using the factory chassis as well as drivetrain. First, the fiberglass body had to be removed, the front / rear frame rails shortened, and an exterior cage fabricated from DOM tubing. It’s powered by a 5.7L LS1 V8 generating 345 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
If you’re wondering, the stock interior (dashboard, console, carpet, and seats) remains partially intact, but everything else is far from factory fresh. New mods include a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon front bumper, DOT-certified Hella headlamps, LED taillight assemblies with turn signals / reverse lights, a modified 2019 Camaro Z/28 muffler, and more.
