The C7 Z06 / Z07 Corvette is easily one of the hottest sports cars on the market, and we at ESOTERIC are experts on this model!

To make the process easier for our customers from around the country, we have put together this page showcasing the various services we have to offer for owners of the Z06 Corvette (and Stingrays, too!).

Just because a vehicle is brand new, it doesn’t mean that it is perfect. In many cases, new cars need to be machine polished to remove imperfections and to bring the gloss up to its full potential. Likewise, new vehicles come with no protection on the paint, wheels, glass, interior, etc. to keep it looking its best for a long time to come.

At ESOTERIC, we work on a lot of brand new vehicles from daily drivers to exotics, and everything in between…we even have brand new cars shipped in to us specifically for our new car preparation to get them started off right.

For those customers looking to buy a new C7 Corvette, we have joined forces with one of the leading Corvette sales specialists in the country – Rick “Corvette” Conti from Coughlin Corvette. Even if you’re not from the Central Ohio area, you can purchase / order your Corvette through Rick, and when it arrives we will prep your car according to your wants and needs. Then when you either pick it up here in Columbus, or have it shipped to you across the country, you will have the best looking and best protected Corvette around!

We have 2 different levels / stages of our new car prep process depending on how far you wish to go, and a few options / upgrades as well. Regardless of the level, the improvement in looks of your Corvette will be significant!


1. ULTIMATE NEW CAR PREP

Our most popular new car service, the Ultimate New Car Prep provides everything that most people want for their brand new Corvette.

First we start off by (properly) machine polishing the paint to bring out a high level of gloss, reflections, and clarity. While stock paint looks “good”, there’s always room for improvement. Factories simply can’t spend this kind of time polishing every single car that comes down the line. Given this, we can make it look better!

Once that is finished, we wrap the entire front end and mirrors in Suntek Paint Protection Film. We have tested all brands, and have found Suntek to provide the best clarity. And when we are polishing these cars, we demand the best clarity out of film that we can find. Where possible, we tuck in edges to make it as clean of an install that we can, and to minimize visible edges.

After the paint protection film is installed, we apply a durable quartz coating to all of the painted surfaces, AND we also apply it on top of the film. A wax or sealant may last you a month or two, whereas these new durable coatings last years when properly maintained. They bond with the surface, provide a high level of gloss, and self-cleaning abilities as well. Unlike waxes and sealants, these coatings cannot be washed off of the surface with a strong solution…they are semi-permanent.

Then we remove the wheels, and apply the same durable coatings (but a high-temp formula) to the wheels and the calipers. This provides a durable barrier between brake dust and the wheels, and makes cleaning / maintenance much easier.

We also apply a durable coating to the windshield that significantly improves how well water comes off at speeds, thus upping the safety factor.

On the interior, we treat surfaces as needed, and apply fabric coating to the carpeted areas as well.

I was blown away when I saw the shine on the car.  Your attention to detail exceeded my expectation. I could not even tell you put Suntek “clear bra” on the car.   The edges were folded over and perfect. The window tint really took the detailing to another level and make your detailing stand out even more.  You get what you pay for and I am a true believer in doing it right the first time.  I love what you did and will be back for follow up down the road.  The four days it takes to detail the car is more than worth the wait!! Every place I stopped on my 900 mile drive home I had people taking pictures and commenting on how beautiful the car was.  I know a big part of that was because of your detailing services.

2. CRYSTAL SERIES CORVETTE

The Crystal Series was inspired by our article under the same name, where we took the Z06 paint to its highest level. This is for the ultimate Corvette enthusiast who wants the absolute best available in the market. In this process, we painstakingly and delicately put the paint through a multiple step machine polishing that removes texture, and makes a huge difference in clarity. For all of the details on this high level, please see our article: Crystal Series Corvette Z06 by ESOTERIC.

Esoteric worked their magic over 5-days and the end-product was remarkable! I drove away with what (in my humble opinion) is the best looking Z06 DSOM coupe in the country! I can’t say enough about Esoteric’s outstanding attention to detail and customer “care and feeding”.

Todd, Dan, and crew are among the best in the country and I highly recommend Esoteric to anyone looking to transform and protect their car’s finish.
