It’s no secret we’re in love with the 5th gen Corvette, but this one is something special. 7 liters of C5R under the hood, with a Vortech supercharger to supply boost, it delivers more than 900 horsepower to the crank, runs 180 in the half-mile, and still can take you anywhere you need to go in comfort and style.
