How Much Does It Cost to Get 1500 HP Out of Your Corvette?

1500 hp

Making 1500 horsepower is very possible, but your pockets will have to be about as deep and big as your imagination. Especially if your imagination includes using it as a daily driver. This is such a complex question, that it can’t possibly be laid out in plain black and white. Variables include what engine you’ll be using, driveline, suspension, and even small things such as how you’ll monitor all that power. An easy assumption to make with any guess is to round up to the nearest $10,000th dollar.

That said, it is possible. The picture above is from Corvette Forum member 08fastgsxr, and it proves that such hefty power is indeed possible. But the journey is never over, with little bugs here and there still being worked out even after dumping what he estimates to be well over “30K” into the car.

If you really want to cry at the amount you’ll have to spend on your car, you can hop into the discussion on the forum.¬†Or who knows, maybe one day you’ll run into the guys from 1320 video and they can set your internet-adjusted HP number for you.

Chime in with your thoughts on the forum. >>
