Essen Motor Show: TUNE IT! SAFE! delivers its own take on the Chevy Corvette image

Under the moniker TUNE IT! SAFE!, the heavily modified Chevrolet Corvette is a one-off coming with a very interesting Police livery, as well as a carbon fiber body kit.

The TUNE IT! SAFE! initiative is being supported by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and the Association of Automobile Tuners (VDAT), with this particular Chevrolet Corvette being tuned by TIKT Performance. The mentioned carbon fiber body kit includes a front lip spoiler, extended fender flares, and dynamic side skirts while the car also poaches us with the police livery, the Hella police lighting package, as well as the carbon fiber rear spoiler. The Corvette sits tight on 19- and 20-inch RR-1 forged alloy wheels with a grey finish and Hankook Ventus S1 evo tires. TUNE IT! SAFE! was established way back in 2005 and has been devised to draw attention on the safe and responsible tuning that acknowledges all legal obligations .The organization has been responsible over the years for a number of heavily modified cars such as the Abt Audi R8 GTR, the AC Schnitzer ACS4 2.8i Coupe or a Brabus-tuned Mercedes A-Class.

The Chevrolet Corvette is not just for show, because under the hood sits the 6.2-liter V8 engine that churns out 459 bhp (466 PS / 343 kW) and 464 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque, which has been mated to a seven-speed manual transmission that delivers the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 4.2 seconds on its way to the maximum speed of 180 mph (290 km/h).
