Concord, Ontario – February 16, 2022 – Caravaggio Corvettes has announced the stunning new Unica Series 1, a limited-edition sports car with an elegant, redesigned carbon fiber body based on the Stingray and ZO6 C8 Corvette. Only 30 of the gorgeous cars will be hand-built and documented for future collectability.
“We’ve made the Corvette a blank canvas for owners to design and build the one-off car of their dreams since 1986,” said John Caravaggio, founder and CEO of Caravaggio Corvettes. “Our new Unica Series 1 is a natural evolution for Caravaggio Corvettes. We will offer 30 carbon fiber bodied C8 Corvettes with a sophisticated design that builds upon the current car’s design. The reimagined car has organic styling that combines the best of American sports car culture with the cultured lines of a European exotic.”
A Canadian custom car manufacturing company specializing in Corvettes, John Caravaggio has been creating bespoke custom versions of the American sports car for almost four decades. His shop, truly a North American Carrozzeria offers handcrafted interiors and exteriors, along with performance upgrades for the Corvette. Each car is a work of art that was completely individualized from top to bottom.
Caravaggio Corvette guides clients to add their own personality and tastes to every element of their vehicle. They can choose from an unlimited amount of interior and exterior options including fabrics, leathers, carbons, colors and finishes. Performance upgrades range from a supercharger, Brembo brakes, additional cooling, various wheels and engine tuning. Each car will wear special badges that proudly identifies it as a Caravaggio Unica Series 1 Corvette.
“While we’re creating the first numbered and documented series in our history, no two cars will be alike,” said Caravaggio. “Each client will have a private consultation with me to create the Unica Series 1 C8 Corvette that matches their personality and taste. We will personalize their exterior color and wheel choices, bespoke the interior and choose any performance upgrades. The result will be a one-off car designed and built in the tradition of the great custom coach builders in Europe.”
Not only does the carbon fiber body give Caravaggio Corvettes the opportunity to restyle the C8, it slices approximately 40 pounds off the car. To make the Unica Series 1 Corvettes even more special, five of them can be optioned with the carbon fiber body in a European exposed weave. This will give the C8 an exotic finish that will impress anyone who spies it.
Almost any color in the world is available for the Caravaggio Unica Series 1 C8 Corvette, limited only by a client’s imagination and paint manufacturer. Custom stripes can be painted on the sleek car and clear coated to ensure clean and precise edges throughout the design.
Interior choices for the Unica Series 1 C8 include full handcrafted leather, bold colors for seats and stitching, matte carbon pieces and Alcantara accents. The interior can include stripes or badging that mirrors the exterior. Thumb grips can be added to the steering wheel, which gives a look and feel comparable to European exotics.
MSRP for the Unica Series 1 Caravaggio Corvette package starts at USD$110,000, not including the base Stingray or ZO6 C8. Orders for the 30 limited edition Unica Series 1 Caravaggio Corvettes are being accepted and production of the cars will begin in the second quarter of 2022. Each masterpiece will be custom designed, built, tested and documented at the company’s facility in Concord, Ontario, Canada.
In addition to building exotic, custom versions of the C8 Corvette for clients worldwide, Caravaggio also offers a full line of late-model Corvette parts and customizes C5-C8 Corvettes.
