The Genaddi LSR Roadster is not for the faint of heart. Only those strong in constitution would tear into a perfectly good Corvette Z06 to create something unique like the LSR. Designed by Wisconsin-based coachbuilder Mark Gerisch, the LSR eschews the Corvette's composite and carbon fiber body panels for ones made of aluminum. While doing so, Gerisch tweaked the Vette's rear end so it kind of looks like an Enzo's with "afterburner" style taillights. We think it falls short of a flattering imitation, but you can decide for yourself. Though nearly every body panel has been recast in aluminum, for some reason only the back half appears altered. The front half looks for all the world like a production Z06, except with a hood scoop and vents that run up the front fenders. The LSR uses the Z06 engine and adds only a "chip" that increases horsepower to 545 according to a representative. We're not sure if we had a Z06 that we'd trade it in for a Genaddi LSR Roadster, but we can't deny that it draws a crowd.

      Well I like it even though I am not fond of the Enzo lights. One thing I envy about Porsches for the most part is most of there aftermarket kits look HOT and r of high quality. That is something that can't be said about the aftermarket kits for Corvettes. But this kit for the most part look of high quality and whole.

      I would like to thank you all for chiming in as it is important to hear this in order to make changes. Our design of the rear tail lights was not entirely what we wanted to show but we were committed to what we had used on the car for SEMA as we ran totally out of time. Something you may not all realize is this project got started in the first few weeks of September. We had about six weeks to get the car designed, built and painted for SEMA. As soon as we got home from the SEMA show Mark went back to work on the car, as you can see by the attached pic we not only revised the lights but also the Bezel and wing that surround them. If you would like to see the latest evolution of the car please visit our website new pics will be up Monday afternoon. www.LSRroadster.com. I think it was PT Barnum who said "You can please some of the people some of the time but you cannot please all of the people all of the time". Please let me know what your thoughts are on this latest revision and how it should have looked out of the box.

      I can't believe they did such a wonderful job on the car and ruined it by putting those tremendously UGLY taillights... Looks like the part from the seats to the rear end don't belong to the rest of the car.

      WOW!!!! That car is HORRID!!!!!! Good lord who ever designed that car needs his or her head check big time.

      Crude. Just crude.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Wow, I will take 1 without the inside color scheme

      This serves as further evidence that there should be some kind of permit or license required to modify a car. What an absolute monstrosity and saddening loss of a Z06.

      I am willing to bet I have never seen modified car that looked better than the original. I am 45 and have seen a great deal of vehicles. I am pretty introverted so maybe I am in the minority. I was just imagining having to drive that car somewhere, my stomach started hurting.
