Chassis #2 of 5 Revealed at SEMA 2022 in the ZF Engineering/Sachs Performance Booth. Our most recently completed chassis #2 Vouno' build was revealed to the world this November as the Booth feature vehicle with our partners at ZF Race Engineering/Sachs performance. Together, we launched the worlds first set of C8 Corvette coilovers engineered and manufactured by the ZF team! The magnitude of the partnership was unparalleled for us at Label. ZF Engineering is the 3rd largest auto supplier in the world, and the producer of hundreds of championship race teams components, from Formula 1 Red Bull Racing, to IMSA, GT3, Rally, and many more professional series! During this amazing week we spent time with the team at ZF/Sachs and greeted hundreds of attendees to discuss our project. Additional to the coilovers, we also featured another world premiere product launch. Eventuri Air Intake systems provided us with the worlds first full carbon fiber Eventuri air intake system with a clear polycarbonate window to display the Air Intake! This is Eventuri's first domestic offering and we were extremely proud to launch this product on our project.
Dubbed Project "Vouno'", our creation of the Ultimate in an American Supercar Widebody program was born. From the Greek word meaning Mountain, Vouno' was a challenge we accepted that was unlike any other in the world. As a lifelong dream to design and manufacture his own products, Andy Siradakis, Designer and Owner of Label Motorsports, embarked on the journey of creating a complete fender replacement, Carbon Fiber widebody program for the new Corvette, highlighting his personal design interpretations and the build execution capabilities of Label Motorsports.
As if the data capturing, CAD development, and 3D printing were not challenging enough, add the fact that COVID grasped the world in the middle of this process, slowing down all process's and adding additional costs for nearly every line item. We forged ahead decidedly, pushing through to create not only the worlds only full forged aerodynamic program, but also developing a proprietary Carbon manufacturing process that we could replicate, keeping the Label Motorsports Carbon Fiber unique in the industry of exotic carbon fiber construction. Enter a process called "LMC", or Label Moulding Compound process. This process not only encapsulates the traditional structural carbon fiber constructed components utilizing the traditional weave carbon fiber which we always do first, but then we add on our top layer of our hand cut forged flakes in sizes we have determined to produce maximum flash and reflectivity, all layered under deep epoxy resin and then finished in a UV stable multilayer automotive clearcoat, creating unmatched depth and gloss similar to a show car paint job.
This 17 month journey culminated with what you see here. The vehicle has become a complete game changer in the C8 world, from CEO's of Major manufacturers, Dealership principles, Automotive enthusiasts, Influencers, and brand partners, the review and feedback has been overwhelming, and delivered the message that the fruits of our labor were well worth the sacrifice made to accomplish this goal. Now at the top of the "Mountain", we are offering these launch edition builds to 5 special clients, giving each one a piece of history they can take home and proudly own for years to come.
1 Allocation remains, who wants to climb to the top of Vouno' with their C8 next?
