Touting their latest creation as the “World’s Highest-Horsepower C7 Z06,” LMR dynoed the car at 765.72 horsepower and 751.20 lb-ft of torque with boost only. Wait till you see what they achieved with boost and nitrous.
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.
Check out this 11-second quarter mile by a Hennessey Performance C7 with a small 2.3L supercharger, new heads and cams, and a slight ECU tweak to give the Corvette over 700 horsepower.
Just in case you never got around to digging up your old time capsule, take a look at this pristine 1990 Corvette ZR1 with only 127 miles on the odometer.
