    HEB Hungary: C3 Corvette pro-touring build

    Hello Guys



    There is no question you are building awesome cars over there but even a small European country like Hungary can show something that is pretty cool. What these guys are doing here at HEB is simply amazing.
    Their knowledge about LS engines and their building skills are really outstanding.

    Here is the car before:

    How to make an old Corvette to handle extremely well and get all the features of a modern C6 Corvette?
    The recipe is pretty simple. Get a 2008-2013 C6 LS3 Corvette rolling chassy (complete with everything ) improved with ridetech coil overs and modify the frame to fit underneath the old one. Is that all?
    Well it is pretty easy to say like that but it was probably harder than that.
    These boys ( 2 brothers) GOT TALENT... so there is nothing that can holds them back.
    I remember when they started to build carbureted engines long time ago and now they are doing LS swaps as an everyday job and building badass cars that drop your jaw.
    Pretty awesome.

    Final outcome?
    Of course, everything works as it should. ABS, traction controll, keyless entry system,paddle shifter etc.
    The only things they can not adopt from a C6 Corvette in these days are the safety features. No airbag ( yet )
    One day....

    Very impressive and nicely done!

    Surprising to see that it was done in Hungary - I visited there years ago (have family there) and mainly saw Mercedes and a few Trabant (not sure on the spelling). Is it considerably more expensive sourcing Corvette & hot rod parts there or have things changed?

    We can buy everything from USA that is not a problem anymore however shipping the parts to Europe is pretty expensive.
