Subject 2021 Corvette Widebody "Vouno"
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 below. Our world reveal was presented at the SEMA show inside our booth partner GENTEX Corporation's amazing display. The vehicle was a complete game changer in the C8 world, creating a buzz at the show that we heard from several attendees that overshadowed the looks of the new Z06, and any other widebody C8 at the show. Several C8 owners who were also presenting widebody C8's at the show even attended the viewing and raved about the quality, execution, and design aesthetics. From CEO's of Major manufacturers, Dealership principles, Automotive enthusiasts, Influencers, and brand partners, the reviews were 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.
