October 31, 2006 There’s no place quite like the SEMA Show 2006 in Las Vegas to see outrageous automobiles and the Outrageous C6 Corvette is appropriately being debuted there. Designed as a showcase for Custom Shop, Mid America Motorworks and Sony, the supercharged, fibreglass beastie features a custom interior of Ostrich leather and Alcantara suede, vertical doors, 650 horsepower (478 kW), and 5600 watts (5.6 kW) of Sony electronics.

“It takes something special to capture enthusiasts’ attention at automotive events,” said Mike Yager, founder and Chief Cheerleader of Mid America Motorworks. “The Outrageous C6 Corvette is everything we wanted, and more.”

The custom interior created by Performance Choice, showcases new upscale textures of Ostrich leather and Alcantara synthetic suede, with the look and feel of suede without the maintenance issues. A wide array of these new interior combinations is now offered by Performance Choice through Mid America Motorworks, Inc.

Wargo contacted Mid America Motorworks with a request for a totally new and striking interior for his latest Corvette creation. “I wanted the inside of the car to look as dramatic as the exterior. Mid America Motorworks was my first choice because I know what they can do with interiors. And they certainly came through,” said Wargo.

The same Performance Choice Interior team that designed and produced the “checkered flag” interior for 2006’s Xtreme Vette, went to work. Inspired by the 1982 Collector Edition Corvette interior and Ferrari Daytona styling, the design team combined state-of-the-art Alcantara synthetic suede, ostrich leather and eyelet accents to produce a truly original interior theme for this year’s Outrageous C6 Corvette.

“The C6 Corvette is the perfect platform for performance and styling enhancements,” said Wargo. “When we were done, you still know it is a Corvette, but it is unlike any Corvette you have ever seen.”

More than just a styling exercise, this Corvette can burn up the street or track with its Pro Charger Supercharger, Corsa Exhaust, vertical doors and other outrageous mods, churning out an estimated 650 horsepower (478 kW), and 5600 watts (5.6 kW) of Sony electronics.

The Outrageous C6 Corvette is booked for display at all the major Corvette shows in 2007.
