Ever since Maximum Bob took the wraps off his Solstice gearheads nationwide, as they are wont to do, have been dreaming about shoving a V8 under the bonnet. Of course the fact that the right wheel drive Solstice is built off the C6's frame rails might have had something to do with that. Mallet Cars, Ltd. was the first to pull off this trick on a wide scale when they released their LS2 Solstice. Right, they crammed a 6.0-liter LS2 engine in the kinda small Solstice. They even got an LS7 engine to fit, but apparently you had to replace the rear tires every 500 miles. Iif you pay attention to the tuner world long enough you will learn one very important maxim: absolutely bonkers is never enough. With that in mind, Mallett is offering up the Pitbull Solstice.
Yeah, it still comes with the same 400hp Corvette mill, but the bulging fiberglass body panels widen the car substantially (4" up front, 5" out back) so you can bolt on your favorite mega-meats and lay sizzling 13-inch stripes all over creation. You can even have it in carbon-fiber. Too bad you'll have to be seen in it. And we doubt all that flub on the rear increases luggage capacity an iota.
