AMAZING CARBON FIBER BODY, ZZ4 350, TKO600 5 SPD, FULL INDY SUSP, CLEAN, SLICK!!
Just like a Shelby Cobra, this 1958 Chevrolet Corvette Lister Replica pays tribute to matching a slick and nimble British body with plenty of American V8 power. The difference between this and a snake-bite is it's actually a predecessor of the Shelby, more powerful, agile, and distinctive than the Cobras you can get for the same price. So, it's time to turn more heads and faster laps.
This example is Lucra Cars LC 470 built in 2008, and those who are in the know are already impressed. That's because it means a tubular frame and an amazing carbon fiber body – an unbeatable modern combination for strength and feather-light weight. And while the construction is state-of-the-art, the body has classically beautiful lines. The low-slung front end with fenders that help you understand where the wheels are at all times has a touch of a Lotus feeling to it (not surprising considering the designer Frank Costin also did work for Lotus.) And the short curved windshield and rounded rear end remind us instantly of the Jaguar D-Type. But while this unique design seems inspired by the best of Britain, it is also undoubtedly American. The slippery blue paint highlighting every curve, and the large white stripe over the top would let everyone know you were racing for the USA back in the day. And the Halibrand-style alloy wheels are another great symbol of American ingenuity.
From the moment you open the door, you're reminded this is a true competition machine. Wrap-around bucket seats, four-point racing harnesses, three spoke wood steering wheel, and a perfectly positioned short-throw shifter – this is everything you want when attacking the track, and nothing extra to weight you down. All of your instruments are laid out in a machined aluminum panel, which really focuses your attention in the black interior. And it's great to see an updated Smiths gauge package that pays tribute to this car's heritage. If you're looking for a radio, you're already missing the point of a car like this, because your true favorite soundtrack will be coming from those sidepipes.
You tilt the full front end forward to get great access to the beast within. That's a GM ZZ4 performance crate motor stroked to 383 cubic inches. It inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and the header package adds even more power as it helps create the sweet rumble at your ears. The motor is rated around 385 horsepower, and in a lightweight machine like this, it's a peerless power package. But the true beauty of this Lister Corvette replica is the amount of control it offers. For example, the TKO-600 five-speed manual transmission and McCleod 11-inch clutch allow you to harness the full potential of the performance V8. The suspension is a fully independent unit borrowed from the C4 Corvette design, with upgrades such as adjustable coilovers for optimal control. And even stopping is confident with a four-wheel disc brake package and Nitto NT01 competition-inspired rubber.
Complete with full owner's manual and less than 1,500 miles on the whole build, this Lister Corvette replica is beautiful, blindingly fast, and a memorable machine. And if you've priced what most of these carbon fiber cars go for, you already know this is a heck of a deal. So hurry up and grab it before it's gone! Call now!!
