Video: LMR Takes Gold at Corvette Invitational
Of all the ways to go fast, the C6 Corvette is one of the most popular. So what happens when you start off with everyone’s favorite race platform and combine it with thousands of dollars in performance parts along with a bit of professional knowhow? As the featured vehicle shows, thousands of horsepower are there to be had and domination is right at your fingertips.
With all of the advancements in automotive technology lately, it is becoming all the more common to have horsepower numbers in the four-digit range. LMR decided to take it a step further and exceed the exceptional with a 427 LSX block and twin 76mm turbos. Spray a little bit of nitrous into the mix and it puts this particular Vette at a monstrous 2000 horsepower.
Vipers, GTRs and Corvettes alike all seem to fall victim to the beast as it is able to climb to impressive speeds just topping 191MPH, good enough to win the top speed award. As seen before, the Vette was able to take home the king of the streets championship as well, beating a variety of other notable cars. If that isn’t enough to tickle your fancy, winning the Corvette Challenge is just icing on the cake. Even with such impressive power and speed, the car is still rocking a vanity plate and radio, which makes us wonder if this beast sees the streets as well. If that’s the case, running and hiding might be a very realistic option for many competitors.
