The start-up Ava from Ireland announces a classic Corvette with plenty of electric power. Prominent names from the automotive industry are behind the project.
Restomod projects are all the rage. And as the spirit of the times would have it, the focus is increasingly on conversions to electric drives. Now Ava from Ireland is getting ready to play along.
The Corvette C2 with split-window serves as the basis.
The Corvette C2 Stingray with split-window from 1963 was chosen for the modernization, but it is to be slightly modified optically and, above all, equipped with an electric drive train. In terms of looks, the Corvette is in prominent hands. The team behind the Ava Hyperclassic Stingray includes designer Peter Brock, who worked for GM for many years and was also part of the design team for the Corvette C2, and Ian Callum, who has shaped numerous Ford, Jaguar and Aston Martin models, among others.
