This C4 Corvette Has Turbochargers for Headlights
This C4 is hurled down the strip by a 540 cubic-inch big block Chevy, with two 88mm turbos placed in the headlights to supplement the air intake.
With modern technology aiming squarely at the turbo as the way of the future, is it about time that GM and Corvette re-visit the idea of intake air compressed by exhaust gasses?
Back in the oil crisis days, GM/Chevrolet/Corvette engineers were taking leftover parts from all the company’s other cars and experimenting with different engine setups, like turbocharging.
The McLaren P1, a true hybrid hypercar, only has 903hp. The Bugatti Veyron? 1,149hp. This C6 Corvette has double that.
Since it’s from D3 Performance, we’re sure this thing is going to be fast. But what is up with this crazy turbo setup on this ZR1?
