Obviously behind these performances there is the hand of a skilled work of elaboration. Under the bonnet we find a LT1 from 6.2L, a V8 extremely high performance. Even the exhausts have been replaced with a version designed for sports use.
The video in question was recorded during Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack from 2018. The Chevrolet was able to win every single race, and also with a fairly solid margin. The vehicle has touched speed peaks between 252 and 280 Km / h. A result to say the least amazing for a classic 1967 car.
The LT1 engine was buoyed thanks to the use of two turbos, with the consequence that the vehicle passed from the original 460 hp associated with the engine to one power of 900CV. The vehicle was subjected to meticulous maintenance work before it could accommodate such a power – so it was clearly not originally conceived.
It would be interesting to see a comparison between this doped Stingray and the new mid-engine generation, the C8 able to do from 0 to 100 in 2.9 seconds.
