Now available for auction is this 2017 Superlite SL-C presented in an Inozetek Acid Green vinyl wrap over a Stone Blue Metallic finish. Produced by Superlite Cars of Fraser, Michigan, the SL-C is an originally designed street-legal component car featuring an all-aluminum monocoque tubular hybrid chassis, fiberglass bodywork, and a custom CNC aluminum suspension. This example is powered by a C7 Corvette Z06 LT4 engine, which has been further modified with an upgraded supercharger pulley, intake, custom exhaust, and tune. Built at a cost of over $175k, this SL-C also comes equipped with a front suspension lift system, air conditioning, full audio, motorized doors, Tillett carbon-fiber racing seats, carbon-fiber aerodynamics, and much more. Now showing just over 6k miles on the odometer, this Superlite SL-C is being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
The chassis of the Superlite SL-C employs an aluminum monocoque structure with an integrated tube assembly TIG welded by hand. The design of the SL-C is loosely based on the IMSA GTP cars of the 1980s and 90s, and this example was optioned with the “race tail” body style which leaves the rear of the vehicle mostly exposed and provides mounting points for a rear spoiler. This SL-C comes finished in the GM color of Stone Blue Metallic (G1K) and currently wears a removable Inozetek Acid Green (SG011) vinyl wrap. Exterior details include integrated fiberglass fender vents, an integrated Aspire fiberglass rear window, door-mounted APR carbon-fiber adjustable mirrors, Lotus tail lights, matching Acid Green-painted brake calipers with black SL-C script, polycarbonate one-piece windows, and mechanized power-lifting doors operated by a button on the key fob. Aerodynamic features include a carbon-fiber race wing with billet aluminum end plates, a roof scoop, a carbon-fiber street-use front splitter, and carbon-fiber side skirts. This SL-C rides on white powdercoated 19” Forgestar CF5 wheels mounted with new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.
The driver is situated in an exposed carbon-fiber tub featuring an integrated 6-point safety cage, Tillett one-piece carbon-fiber racing seats with Sparco 4-point harnesses, a MOMO Raptor Pro flat-bottomed steering wheel with a quick-release hub, an Audi R8 gated shifter with a leather-wrapped shift knob, an AIM instrument system, a HalGuard fire extinguisher, and an ISIS electrical system with a battery isolator and master power shutoff. The A-pillars, dashboard, and custom center console are finished in Alsa Soft Touch paint, designed to mimic the look and feel of leather. Driver’s amenities include air conditioning, a rear-view camera, a front suspension lift system, an electronic parking brake, custom sound deadening throughout the cabin, and a Rockford Fosgate Bluetooth head unit with an Alpine amplifier, Focal speakers, and a custom center box.
This Superlite SL-C is powered by a 6.2L supercharged and intercooled LT4 V8 used in the C7 Corvette Z06, which produced up to 650 HP and 650 lb.-ft of torque stock. This LT4 offers a claimed output of 740 HP at the crank using an upgraded supercharger pulley, cold air intake system, custom ceramic-coated exhaust setup, and upgraded engine management software. The rear wheels are driven by an Audi R8-derived Graziano 6-speed manual transmission with custom gearing. Other performance features include a custom CNC billet aluminum coilover suspension, Brembo 4-piston brake calipers, and a custom fuel system. The seller reports routine oil services to have been carried out since new.
This sale will include a clean Florida title. A visceral race car for the roads, this LT4-powered Superlite SL-C is just as thrilling to drive as it is to behold. Do not miss your chance to become the next owner.
