Supercar designer Ugur Sahin has partnered with Corvette tuner Mallet Cars to produce an even shapelier beast, in the form of the exclusive Mallet Z03.

The Mallet Z03 (based on the Corvette C6) is available with a standard 522kW (700HP), although it can be upgraded to a whopping 745 killer wasps (999hp).

You have to ask the question: why not the one extra horse? Maybe ol’ Beelzebub preferred this number for a red beast sitting proudly in his driveway. After all, it just needs an inversion to spot the number on his front door.

Sahin has done a brilliant job converting the classic Corvette lines into something new, especially in the crafting of the headlights.

Elements of the donor ‘vette remain, of course, most noticeably in the former of the redesigned but present ‘power dome’, showing off the beastly Corvette heart.

There’s a lot of Lamborghini or Lotus in the redesign, and some might say that the American muscle car now sports a European flavour.

If you already own a Corvette C06 or a Z06, you can upgrade it to Mallet Z06 for USD $69,000. That includes full bodywork conversion.

In addition to a new look customers can choose between two optional performance packages based on the GM’s LS7 engines, a 700 hp supercharged conversion and a 999 hp twin turbo conversion.

The Mallett Z03 700hp Dead Blow Hammer Conversion will cost you USD $32,700.00 and the Mallett Z03 999hp APS Twin Turbo Hammer Conversion will set you back USD $35,795.00.

UgurSahinDesign Mallett Z03 Press Release

"Since the first press release early 2008 Ugur Sahin and his team have been involved in a lot of preparations to take the Z03 concept from art to parts.

Several exterior design adjustments have been made for optimal engine cooling and improved downforce. The headlight units have been shaped into a more aggressive, yet distinctive design to fit the shape of the new powerdome hood.

For fabrication and engine tuning of the limited Corvette series Ugur Sahin Design has teamed up with Mallett Cars from Berea, Ohio.

Mallett Cars has a long history with racing Corvettes and the Mallett brothers have tuned and upgraded hundreds of Corvettes over the years.

Now that Ugur Sahin Design and Mallett Cars have set their minds on the Corvette C6, they are aiming to push the bar even higher for the American performance car enthusiasts.

Proof of this statement is that Mallett Cars has developed a full 24000 mile/ two year guaranteed 999 hp Twin Turbo engine upgrade, which makes the Mallett Z03 the most powerful Corvette series ever produced. Every body part will be precision engineered by the state of the art engineering equipments to ensure the maximum build quality.

Pricing of the conversion of your Corvette C6 or Z06 into a USD Mallett Z03 is set at $ 69.000 for the full bodywork conversion including reference class paintwork.

Pricing does not include cost of the donor vehicle, which will be supplied by the customer.

The Mallett Z03 will be available with two optional performance packages based on the GM's LS7 engines, a 700 hp supercharged conversion and a 999 hp twin turbo conversion.
