Video: A Swedish Take on a JDM-Influenced C4 Corvette

https://www.youtube.com/embed/GAX9U5Wi_1E

Sweden may be the country associated with churning out safe and sensible Volvos, but it's also the home to the speed freaks at Koenigsegg and this outlandish "JDM-inspired" C4 Corvette.

A big wing, a set of big flares and a big personality is what sets this Corvette apart from most on the road. As soon as things clear up, maybe it would be worth checking out the Scandinavian car scene in person.

I love the look, but its got no performance mods?  Needs a twin turbo LS swap and manual trans, stat.

The Miami Vice feel is cool.

I love that someone had a vision and built it--no apologies, no nothing.

And I love that he mixed genres. JDM-influenced build of a car rarely seen in Japan? Too cool. It's like he created his own alternate universe. (See also: Gotham by Gaslight.)

This epitomizes the whole cyberpunk thing to me. There's a couple things I'd add.... but not much

OMG, yes! If I had a C4 that body kit would be on the short list of mods. I have a C3, so gears are now turning in my head.

Add lighting and it could be a Tron: Legacy cyber vehicle.

I dig it. A lot.

Shame, though, that its performance (in any capacity, by the owner's admission) is not up to par as the body.

Well now.  That takes a car that is very tame looking stock into something that turns heads.  Not everyone would like it, but that is their problem.

The Scandinavian scene is boiling with mad car builds of all kinds, that's for sure. And sweden is the world capital for 50s and 60 American iron, which surprises people from abroad :)
