1997 - 2004 Chevrolet Corvette C5 by Wittera

We love the Chevrolet Corvette C5 so fiercely that it’s going to take a real good aftermarket tuning program to make us think that it’s going to work on the American sports car. Believe us when we say that the Corvette is one of the few sports cars that looks inherently good by itself and tuning companies often are left with two options for their programs: hit or miss.

German aftermarket specialist, Wittera, came up with a new widebody aero package, to go with some minor performance tweaks, for their new program for the Corvette C5. After looking at the evidence and the numbers involved, we like the smell of what these guys are cooking.

For starters, the widebody kit is being offered with a choice of either carbon fiber or a high-grade glass fiber-reinforced plastic with the latter being subjected to what Wittera calls ’tempering.’ This process means that the parts are heated at 149° F (65° C) before being cooled into a mold for 25 minutes, thereby making the parts sturdier to avoid the potential for cracks.

In addition to the two kit choices, the program also offers fenders on the front and rear end, door and rocker panels, a rear apron, and a front bumper that comes in two options: a deeper set that makes for a more aggressive widebody profile and a flat version that is used for Corvettes that have lowered suspensions. On top of that, Wittera is also offering customers a plethora of wheel choices that include 20 different sets (19" and 20") that customers can choose from.

All told, the whole set-up does justice to the Corvette by enhancing all of its features while also not going too overboard with the details. It’s a program that works excellent for the American sports car and is something that the folks over at Wittera should be very proud of.

Corvette would be one of my favorite racing cars and seeing it with a more powerful engine makes me want to drive it! Anyway, did they already put it on the market?

My heart is hooked with most of Chevrolet cars, it does surprised me always on its affiliates, features and design concept. This obsession gives pleasure to me very much.

Chevrolet Corvette C5 has 505 horse power. Its enough for this kind of car. Since 1997 up to 2004 the performance of this car is maintain than the other car.

This one is a slightly nice to other corvette. This car has 505 horsepower and 7.0-liter v8 engine. It’s enough to have a good car performance

This car is simply cool, and I know that people who will see this will drool, and I’m absolutely one of them. The curves of the car show elegance. It doesn’t look like a sports car, its more of a luxury car for me.

I would say that this one is definitely the best Corvette generation that I have seen these past few years . They were able to mix in both a good exterior and a high performance engine on this package.

Yeah, this one is a rather nice take on the Corvette. I like the way they did the look of the and the way they emphasize more on the curves rather than the angles.

As time comes, I almost forgot about this model of Chevy... Based on its looks, a sporty and racing car, Chevroletis indeed offering a good quality car which is good for them. An aftermarket model with a new version, that’s brilliant!

Well, that’s really what aftermarket companies are all about. The Corvette is really good as it is, but they still managed to make it even better both in the looks and the performance departments.

Well, it seems that they have really worked a lot on this car. I must admit that I am not really familiar with Wittera’s works, bur I immediately like what I am seeing here.

Too bad for they haven’t make an impressive boosting on the power of this car. Chevy have focused in the add-ons of this which I think it unnecessary for this car is sporty looking already.

I really love aftermarket version car for they make the car sportier and powerful! Corvette would be one of my favorite racing car and seeing it with a more powerful engine
makes me want to drive it!
