No, this isn't an Ed Roth sketch of what a Solstice might look like on acid. It's a real-life widebody kit made by Mallett, the crazy folks who managed to squeeze a Corvette V-8 under the Solstice's tiny hood. Called the Pitbull Edition, this six-piece kit widens the car by four inches in the front and five inches in the rear. A wider body means room for wider tires, and we can't say that's a bad idea, considering that Mallett will ram a 7.0-liter Z06 engine under the hood for the right price. Made out of fiberglass, the whole kit will cost $16,000-18,000 after paint and installation. By special order only, Mallett will mold the body panels out of carbon fiber instead of glass. Look for Mallett to officially debut the Pitbull Edition at the 2007 SEMA show in Las Vegas.
