This two-seater coupe model also incorporates the sports brake system of a Corvette LS5 for advanced braking capacity. The tires chosen were specialty Bridgestone Potenza brand tires for their superb performance.

Exterior

In order to accommodate the larger rear wheels, the mudguards were widened to make the 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Car by Pogea Racing fourteen and a half inches wider than the classic 1959 Corvette, resulting in a total width of 6.86 feet.

Interior

The interior of the 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Custom by Pogea Racing is based on the color combination of red and white, with a red steering wheel and seats that mimic the Rosso shade so popular with classic Ferrari automobiles.

With additional upgrades of an Alpine multimedia system, as well as satellite navigation, all of the electronics inside the vehicle have been raised to meet the latest standards in technology.
