Lawmakers in Montana are busy drafting a bill that proposes raising the speed limit on interstate highways from 75 to 80, and maybe as high as 85 mph.
This week’s Facebook Friday find is a rendering from SuperVettes posted by Leon Sanford Jr., and it may very well be one of the hottest all-black Corvettes we’ve ever seen.
First thing’s first: we know the 2015 Corvette Z06 in bone-stock form makes 585 horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Why do we know this? Vengeance Racing just got their hands on a brand-new Z06. They are the first tuner we know of to do so, and they immediately got the car on the dyno once they got it back to the shop. But it’s what they did before they drove the car off the lot that has a lot of people going crazy on Facebook right now.
The repairs are expected to take a while, but there’s comfort in knowing the 1 Millionth Corvette, which is valued at $750,000, won’t wind up living out the rest of its days at the museum in its current condition, which would be another catastrophe in and of itself.
A Race Proven Motorsports Corvette eating up the track at the Haltech World Cup Finals is further proof that you should never, ever underestimate the potential power or speed of a well-tuned ‘Vette.
