This guy chopped up his C5 Corvette and the results are... interesting...
The Corvette has been a tuner's favourite for decades now. There's all sorts of things you can do to them via aftermarket parts, as well as a few crazy conversions here and there. The combination of good old-fashioned bulletproof American engineering and a classic V8 soundtrack really gets the tuning companies and the crazy modders coming, it seems. This one, however, is quite possibly the craziest modified Corvette I've ever seen and it comes courtesy of the ever-popular Shitty Car Mods subreddit.
It's been dubbed the "Corvettini" by CarScoops (which, to be honest, is a name so good I'll use it as well!) and it's one of the most extensive conversions I've ever seen of any tuner-favourite sports car. It seems like whoever owns this oddity wasn't quite happy with the long overhangs of the regular C5 Corvette that it's based on, so he just decided to chop them off. The end result is a rather bizarre-looking creation that resembles a Mark 1 Mazda MX-5 at the front and a Plymouth/Chrysler Prowler at the rear.
Whilst neither of those are bad looking cars to compare the Corvettini off of, that won't shake the pure oddness of this machine out of your mind. Just take a look at those oddly small, oddly round rear lights, that sharply angled drop on the rear end with the 80s style rubber safety bumpers, the hilariously tiny bootlid and the pop-up lights that have seemigly just been left there. Even the licence plate looks really oddly stuck on, being held onto a plate of metal on the front end. Those rear exhauts look absolutely mad too!
Doing this kind of serious surgery to a Corvette would definitely take a lot of weight off the car. Would the handling and performance be seriously improved thanks to this? I'm not really sure. Whatever the case is, this Corvette owner has created something really unique in the Corvettini. Whether you like it or not, the fact that it exists is definitely worth celebrating.
