If there’s one thing that really gets under my skin, it’s seeing someone who has taken a Corvette platform and turned it into some awful contraption that completely disgraces the nameplate.
Hats off to the guys at Krider Racing for their recent victory in the Speed Ventures Corvette Challenge.
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?
The 2009 Blue Devil ZR1 prototype damaged in the National Corvette Museum sinkhole disaster is headed back to Detroit for restoration.
This C6 Z06 is so magnificent, it stands with the sky and the clouds as though it were among equals … and essentially, it is.
