2001 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Commemorative Edition by AAT

Originally penned to celebrate the Corvette's 50th anniversary, 
the 1953 Commemorative Edition by Advanced Automotive Technologies 
of Rochester Hills, Michigan blends the classic styling of 50s Americana 
with the performance, comfort, and technology of the 21st century. 
It wraps the retro C1 styling around a customer supplied 2001 Z06 hardtop coupe. 
Only 200 C5 Corvettes and 7 C5 Z06s to be converted into this limited edition 1953CEs.
This 1953CE’s build began with a spotless 2001 Z06 which was stripped 
of everything but its doors and roof. All-new heritage inspired front and 
rear panels were installed using factory attachment locations. 
Once the new fiberglass panels were professionally fitted 
and color-matched, new HID and halogen head lights and real metal accents 
were added to complete the transformation. 
Powered by a LS6 V8 engine that produces 405 horsepower. 
6-speed manual transmission.
