Subtle and over the top are both common characteristics of high-end show cars these days. It’s usually one or the other, though. This 1966 Vette is setting out to be both, and if there’s one builder who can manage that task it’s Kyle Kuhnhausen. If you don’t know him, then do yourself a favor and search for InZanity 240Z or Ballistic Beige Corvette.

The overall appearance and general impression of the car is that of a refined yet fairly straightforward, high-end build. Digging deeper is where the over-the-top elements come into play with thoughtful execution. An Art Morrison GT Sport chassis provides the groundwork for the rest of the build with excellent handling and a killer stance. GM’s proven LT4 will be under the hood, but it will be backed up by a paddle-shifted BMW DCT transmission. Big Wilwood 14-inch disc brakes promise to stop the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 meats with no problems. Kyle’s famous attention to detail will help bring these features together with superior fabrication and engineering techniques.
