Atelier Vengeance Racing presented its own version of the coupe Corvette Z06

American tuning studio Vengeance Racing presented a modified version of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, which looks like a racing version called C7.R. The coupe received a new aerodynamic body kit, a “eight” of increased power and different sized wheels on the front and rear axle.

Tuners increased the power of the stock compressor V8 with a volume of 6.2 liters from 659 horsepower and 881 Nm of torque to 862 forces and 1,194 Nm of torque. This result was obtained after the installation of a new intake system, reinforced crankshaft, racing camshaft and pulleys. Gearbox – eight-speed automatic with gearshift paddles – remained the same. The regular Corvette Z06 accelerates to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in 2.95 seconds. The dynamic characteristics of the modified machine are not reported.

Externally, the supercar has a massive rear wing, a carbon splitter with winglets, aerodynamic side sills and two-part forged wheels ADV.1 with 19 inches in front and 20 inches in the rear. Tires – track Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2.

The most powerful Chevrolet Corvette factory – ZR1 – can accelerate from zero to 97 kilometers per hour in 2.85 seconds. The supercar is equipped with a 765-horsepower eight-cylinder engine 6.2 with a mechanical supercharger. The unit can be paired with a seven-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
