PureRossi has just unveiled the first details on the Rossi SixtySix – an intriguing design concept for Corvette enthusiasts and now it’s ready to shift from rendering to real life.
The Rossi SixtySix is the C6 Chevrolet Corvette that borrows its design DNA from the timeless good looks of the ‘63-’67 Stingrays. The SixtySix will be built in limited numbers and will be unveiled at the 22nd Annual EyesOn Design this Sunday at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills.
As we’ve already said, the Rossi SixtySix will take its design inspiration from the Sting Ray models: there will be a split window, stinger hood, a modern front, and retro “bumpers”.
For the interior, updates will be made to the center console area, door accents, and shift boots. The sports car will be offered in eight exterior colors: black, red, maroon, blue, pearl white, a charcoal gray, and yellow.
Under the hood the Rossi SixtySix will have a V8 engine producing 450 HP and 400 lbs-ft of torque. However, performance figures haven’t been released yet so little is known about how these numbers will reflect on the road.
Transforming a new Corvette C6 into a Rossi SixtySix only takes five days and the price for the final project, with the C6 donor car included, is in the $130,000 USD area. [via Auto Blog]
