Muscle Car of the Week: The 1971 Corvette LS6 454
This 1971 Chevrolet Corvette put 425 horsepower under the hood of the C3, and transformed what we thought about muscle cars and sports cars.
Pulling a wheelie half way down the strip doesn’t stop this Corvette from getting into the 6s.
The McLaren P1, a true hybrid hypercar, only has 903hp. The Bugatti Veyron? 1,149hp. This C6 Corvette has double that.
Even amid the issues that have haunted the 650-horsepower LT4, GM is now making it available as a crate engine for those interested in adding a bit of the Z06 magic into other cars.
