Peter Brock & Ian Callum Are Actually Building A 2,000HP Corvette Stingray

Upon its debut in 1963, the Corvette C2 proved an instant hit because of its peaked fenders, hidden quad headlamps, and short rear end — a combination that was quite unlike anything the world had ever seen at the time. Hell, even after a further six generations of Vette, for many oil-blooded enthusiasts, it’s the mighty Stingray that still reigns supreme.

In an effort to give the C2 a proper 21st-century refresh, a small Irish-based company known as AVA has enlisted the help of renowned automotive designers Peter Brock and Ian Callum. If those names sound familiar, it’s for good reason — the former helped pen the original C2 (and is the last surviving member of the team), while the latter used to be the styling manager at Jaguar and Aston Martin. Suffice to say — there couldn’t be a better pair of men for the job. And although the details at this point are tentative at best, we do know this much: it’ll be fully-electric, tuned for performance, and hide some 1,200 to 2,000 horses under the hood. Color us excited.
