Yes, you read that headline correctly. We're talking about a C7 with a whopping, earth-shattering 4,000 horsepower!

Read the rest on the Corvette Forum homepage. >>

The only thing even remotely C7 about it is the very general shape and some decals. Saying that's a C7 is like saying John Force has raced a Mustang for many years. Neither is a true statement.

This is NOT a Corvette C7.

It is a custom made dragster with a plastic molded body to look like a Corvette C7.

While there is no discussion of the exact engine there is no way the engine could be from a 4.6L Stingray or a SC Z06 nor any other components.

Yes, it looks cool but no close connection to a Corvette except a simulated Corvette body.

Really? When can I order one? Think that Kerbeck might get one for stock. I really think that my wife would like to take it to the Bash next year.

4,000HP, big whoop. General attitude is that NHRA top fuel cars are producing 9-10,000 HP.

Looks like the phony C7 is down 5-6000HP. Don
