This is Corvette Genesis
If you’re going to make a video about the achingly beautiful 1956 Corvette SR-2, you’ve got to make it good, and golly is this good.
What’s better than a new Corvette Z06? A new Corvette Z06 doing a hella-good burnout — that’s what. And what could make it better? Gratuitous slow motion!
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.
Whoever said we’re in the twilight of horsepower and performance cars hasn’t looked outside recently. If anything, we’re in the new golden age of both.
Just take the following video of a race between a C7 Z06 and a motorcycle as proof.
