Project Corvette Stingray C7 Z51: Remodeling the Interior
The C7 Corvette’s interior is a huge step up from its predecessors. Previous iterations of the venerable Corvette might have been awesome cars, but the interiors were plastic clad and had the look of a cheap rental car. Not so with the C7.
With the most recent Corvette, Chevy really pulled out all the stops when it came to the design of the interior. The level of fit and finish and the quality of the materials rivals that of the Japanese and German cars that can cost several times more.
We have a Nissan GT-R Black Edition and a Porsche GT3 RS in the MotoIQ Garage, and we would say that surprisingly the C7 is on par with those cars. The Porsche does have over $20,000 in Porsche custom shop interior upgrades, but the base RS and GT3 are probably less well-appointed than the Corvette while costing twice as much.
Although our Vette came with a nice interior from the factory, we wanted to pimp it out some more with some factory optional parts right from GM.
