"This Corvette unites classic automobile design in balance with the latest in modern vehicle technology."

This is how Eduard Pogea, head of POGEA RACING GmbH outlines the '59 model Corvette convertible modernised by his company on a customer's orders. And continues: "Within the space of only one year we developed, produced and adapted current technology to fit in an American Old timer. Our objective was to marry contemporary driving characteristics, a terrifically powerful engine, dependable brakes and a refined vehicle interior with classic bodywork."

The chassis for this demanding project consists of an in-house tube frame manufactured in cooperation with Foose Design in the USA. This frame not only significantly improves the convertible's torsional stiffness, it also forms a solid base on which to mount the height adjustable coilover suspension, as well as the modern drive and brake systems.
