Up for sale in our Tampa showroom is this one of a kind 1988 Custom Corvette entitled Bella Elan.

The suspension is also derived from a C4 Corvette, as well as the brakes and steering. QA1 fully adjustable coil-overs were added for better performance and handling. The main body section was derived primarily from a 2001 Audi TT with door beams and a added roll-bar The fenders were derived from a 1937 Chevy, and rest of the body was custom fabricated with reinforced fiberglass honeycomb core. Finishing it off is a set of solid finish Teak side skirts and many layers of varnish and urethane clear coat to make it shine. The body is covered in premium clear/base coat Golden Globe finish, and polished to a pristine shine. Powering this beautiful car is a GM LS1 5.7L V8 paired to a 4L60E 4-Speed automatic transmission, and 2.59:1 limited slip differential from a Corvette. The custom interior features black power/heated leather seats, power windows, power door locks, tilt and telescopic steering with a custom Nardi mahogany steering wheel.
