Congrats and kudos to Michelle at Mint Models for another tantalizing Corvette tidbit. Our first of the 2008's to arrive and the first Vette in Jetstream Blue. Talk about a color combo; Corvette replaced its popular Electron Blue with Le Mans Blue and did not achieve the same popularity. But for 2008, they introduced Jetstream Blue to howls of joy once again. Michelle also added the optional two-tone Linen interior package to highly compliment the exterior and the model looks fantastic!
New style five twin-spoke aluminum wheels were included to the base package that offered 430 horsepower with the 2008 LS3 6.2L engine. In coupe form, the model offers an aerodynamic presence that commands attention, not only in a collectors grouping but even among other 1:24th Corvettes.
As with the other FM C6 iterations, the Vette works and looks as spot on as it possibly can. The suspension articulates without sacrificing proper ride stance; the roof panel removes to add a secondary display potential and the engine detail has never been better on the C6 V8.
TFM may not have gotten around to fashion a base-engined coupe with the Ebony/Light Linen interior and equipped it with the five twin-spoke wheels in Jetstream Blue; so high praise, indeed, to Michelle!
