Forum:

I was surfing and found these pictures. Looks like the 2001 SEMA show

Any idea what this car is? A hint towards the future? A special package that may be offered by GM?

It looks like its in a Chevrolet section of the show...

Its got the TigerShark Hood, and Z06 wheels. Its a Coupe, but it has a label on it where the Z06 label normally is (front fender). I cant read it.

Any ideas?

It looks like it has a 485 HP emblem instead of the Z06 405 emblem. This'll start a few rumors! :cool:

FRC Tom:

Thanks Tom, looks like it is a "variation" of the TigerShark. May be released too !

Here is what the article says : (Taken From CorvetteMagazine.com)

Quote" In the GM booth, this yellow C5 from Wheel to Wheel Inc. was designated by Chevrolet as an "Accessory Corvette, a potential package currently being considered for release." Utilizing a number of Tiger Shark concept pieces, the car was also fitted with a Wheel to Wheel lowering kit, Hotchkis front sway bar, titanium cat-back exhaust, and Crossflag seat covers."

They go on to say that it has 470 HP, 6.1 Liter LS1, Z06 wheels, and TigerShark Concept Body Pieces. :cool:

When I was at the plant in September behind the fence I saw no less than 6 of those front ends sitting in a pile.
Could it be the Anniversary front end? ;)

One of the things

I like about the ZO6 is the "no nonsense, no frills look.Strictly business. No "fluff".
These other pictures look good, but I'll
have mine plain". :)
