What we all came to know as the 1968-1982 C3 Corvette started out as the awesome 1965 Mako Shark II show car designed by legendary GM design chief William Mitchell. Mitchell’s design captured his philosophy perfectly: combine the elegance of Manta Ray and Great White Shark in a car that looked like it was moving when it is standing still. To be sure, the production C3 lost some of the magic of Mitchell’s design and over time, its performance. Fortunately for you, BKPE is consumed with resurrecting magic and maximizing performance. And that is exactly what we have done with our C3 BKPE Corvette Scimitar Shark.

We invite our clients to review these specifications and available options and then click on Pricing Information to obtain information on how to order your own Scimitar Shark.
