Tuned C7 Corvette Z06 vs. Tuned Viper TA
It’s a battle of the ages. A race that demands payment to Thor and his Asgardian brethren in the form of unbelievable American noise. But will the new Corvette Z06 make a better showing than the last time these two titans clashed?
You might be asking, “How is this Lingenfelter Z06 really any different than all the other modified Z06s we’ve seen in the past? Didn’t they just do a new ECU tune and call it a day like everyone else?” Nope, not in the slightest.
Thankfully there are a few intrepid Corvette owners out there who love driving more than anything. That’s exactly the case with Mark and his 2000 C5 Coupe. As outlined in the video after the jump, this is Mark’s fifth Corvette, and it has over 650,000 miles on it.
With reports of Ford nixing the V8 altogether, it didn’t take long for “Corvette Forum” members to start imagining a Corvette world without the familiar rumble of the V8.
As the Car and Driver spy shot above demonstrates, it looks more likely than ever that there will, in fact, be a mid-engine C8 Corvette.
