Would You Pay $100k for This Corvette ‘Prototype Showcar’?
In the world of custom Corvette’s, there seems to be no such thing as too high of a price, even when the Corvette in question is probably not worth a tenth of what the seller is actually asking for. Take this 1969 Corvette “prototype showcar,” for example.
All 2015 Corvette Z06 engines are “blown”, as in supercharged, but we only know of one so far that has blown up, and it belongs to Corvette Forum member “lawdogg149”. Here’s how it all happened.
We have been tipped off to a possible fix for the Z06 ECU’s power-robbing tendencies, and best of all, it’s a solution that won’t void the 650-horsepower beast’s warranty. Let the car break in.
Within 48 hours of getting their hands on the new Z06, Vengeance Racing managed to get 660 RWHP and 663 RWTQ out of the car with only an additional pulley and a modified AFE cold-air intake.
One of the latest Corvettes to be restored by Johnson, this Stingray features both exterior and interior updates, and an all-new Gen V LT1 crate engine, which the folks at Chevy are making available for $11,000 for the wet sump version and $11,250 for the dry sump.
