After 3 long years of hard work, our friend Ian King and his team over at Car Porn Racing Manila have finally released their passion project at the Manila Auto Salon – The Black Manta.
The project started off as a stock C6 Corvette, but as you can see from the pictures, the final product is something that would come out of a Tim Burton Batman movie.
Ian and Car Porn Racing reached out to one of the best automotive graphic designers in the business (Jonsibal) to design the facelift… er.. full widebody redesign of the C6 and over the years the team has been constantly refining the design until they came up with the final product you see in these pictures.
We’ve personally seen the different iterations of the car and it’s definitely come a long way from where it began.
Check out the full list of specs and upgrades for the car:
- 6.2L LS3 engine
- Black Manta body designed by Jonsibal
- Pdaft swaybars, engine supports
- Carbon drive shaft
- Racing clutch
- Varex Exhaust
- Eforce Supercharger kit
- Stoptech BBK
- DPE 20″ SPR10 wheels with 6″ front lips and 7″ rear lips
- Nitto tires
- LG long tube headers and X pipe
- Upgraded Radiator
- Airrex Airstruts
- Aluminum center column upgrade
- Custom Tuned
- Recaro seats
- Evans coolant
According to Ian, “This is our working prototype and after the car show we will do some track testing before we proceed to produce a carbon fiber body.”
And by “track testing”, Ian’s basically going to hoon the shit out of the car and drift it in every direction known to man.
Congratulations to Ian King and the entire Car Porn Racing family – you guys created a beast!
