ARES Corvette Stingray

Is there a more iconic American car than the Corvette Stingray? The first-generation Corvette was introduced in the 1950s but the historic Stingray moniker was unleashed the following decade. It is perhaps the most revered of all the Corvettes, and ARES Design’s brief was to thoroughly bring this 1964 Stingray up to date with modern performance, road manners and interior appointments as well as fully restoring the Corvette in the process. The finished product is the result of over 3500 hours of work and a stunning one-off creation that showcases the entire range of ARES Design’s capabilities.
