Back in the days of the C5, the late John Lingenfelter was able to get a Corvette up to 225 mph with “only” 650 horsepower. By the time the C6 ZR1 rolled into production, it was able to achieve “only” 205 mph with 638 horsepower. With cars that are pumping out similar power figures, why the top speed discrepancy?
I recently stumbled on a story that left me pondering something: at what point after an accident in a Corvette do you just call it a wrap and scrap it?
There seems to be a looming question on a Corvette Forum thread of exactly what’s the best wax for the job when it comes to shining her up and protecting that black paint.
During a recent one-on-one tour at Lingenfelter’s Michigan facility, I had a chance to get a more candid take on what he thinks about the new Stingray and what his team is doing to get more power out of the car.
It looks like the idea of being able to participate in the engine build for that new Z06 you ordered isn’t guaranteed even if you do have the extra cash.
