Just gorgeous

Bulgarian interior specialist Vilner has given the 1976 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray a makeover.

Modifying an already gorgeous car requires talent and good taste which Vilner seems to have as they only made the C3 more appealing. The modifications start out in the engine department where the V8 5.7-liter received a new head, shafts and two twin carburetors from Edelbrock Performance which have bumped output to approximately 300 HP (220 kW).

On the outside we notice a pearl brown paint and a calf leather-wrapped targa roof trim with decorative stitching. At the front there are daytime running lights, along with new turn signals while at the rear the taillights have received LED technology.

The biggest chances are noticeable once you open the door and notice the reworked dashboard and the new calf-nappa leather upholstery for the seats. McIntosh was in charge of providing the audio system which boasts three amplifiers and a three-band front system from Ground Zero.

The speedometer, tachometer and the rest of the dials have been redesigned and for an extra touch of personalization there is laser engraving on the seats. Where you would normally find wood elements inside a 1976 Corvette, now there are inserts made of Corian, representing a solid surface material made from acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate.

I'll give them credit for ditching the Vega steering wheel, but otherwise it's putting the silk purse ONTO the sow's ear.
