Classic Reflection Coachworks recently put the final touches on its retro-body kit for the C5 Corvette. The May issue of Motor Trend suggests that we definitely not consider this modification as a kit-car body simply added to the great underpinnings of a C5. It is, in fact, much more!
The body with the look of a 1962 Corvette convertible was created through extensive study and engineering. The unique body molds are made to be seamless to allow for vacuum-formed creation from Sprint CBS material. The lines are pleasing.
The basic package $65,000 you pay (on top of what you paid for your C5) includes the body transformation, a special ram-air induction hood, a new soft top, custom leather door panels, and a choice of color. Options include cat-back aftermarket exhaust, racing rotors, exhaust headers, and engine re-programmer.
Although all potential changes will add 185 pounds to total weight, the performance enhancements drive the vehicle to sixty mph, and stop it, faster than a stock C5.
