2002 Corvette White Shark Concept

2002 White Shark Concept

At the 2002 SEMA show, Chevrolet dressed up many of its production vehicles for the aftermarket accessory show. The Corvette White Shark stood out as a highlight for its demure nature. It pays homage to Mako Shark Corvette produced in 1965.

Under the hood the White Shark shows off it’s 402, with a carbon fiber engine bay. Not all is aesthetic either, because this cars drivetrain is special. Its 6.6-liter engine produces 512 horsepower and 523 lbs.-ft. of torque. Mated to a four-speed automatic transmission and featuring a 3:41 geared limited slip differential and four-wheel independent suspension, this “Vette takes a backseat to no other vehicle. The White Shark Corvette also features power rack-and-pinion steering to precisely pilot this vehicle and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and traction control for secure stops and starts.

And if “cool” is what you”re after, then gaze at its Shark Sand tri-stage pearl paint. Admire the exterior styling package with distinct fascia, chin spoiler and air-extracting hood up front. Notice the Shark’s rear fascia with European taillight assemblies. Also at the rear of the vehicle, observe how the tub kit has been enhanced to accommodate the massive P335/30-18 F1 Fiorano tires mounted on nickel-plated, five-spoke alloy wheels.

  • Shark Sand tri-stage pearl paint
