The World’s Fastest C7 Corvette Stingray Unleash 3,500 Hp
While this 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray hasn’t retained man of its original parts, but at one point it did derive from an actual Chevrolet dealership. Sticker price at $55,000, it was a 460 hp sports car that hit 60 mph in a quick 3.8 seconds. The quarter mile was eclipsed in 12 seconds flat.
And even today, these figures seem unrealistic.
That is due to his C7 being transformed into an Outlaw 10.5 drag racer. With its 3,500 hp on tap, props going to a giant screw-type supercharger, this car is hands down the fastest C7 Stingray out their.
The transformation from production C7 began in February, 2014 by Chuck Ulsch and Gil Mobley. It took the team a little longer then expected and granted they felt a little rushed to make the start line, this bad boy ‘Vette managed a 4.11 second pass at 188 mph on the Cecil County’s eight h of a mile strip. The description in the video claims that this is just 0.2 seconds shy of the all-time Outlaw 10.5 record.
This class of racing limits competitors to 10.5 inch slick rear tires and a stock firewall and suspension, this according to Autoevolution. The car must weigh at least 3,000 lbs. and not boast a single one of Dom Toretto’s nitrous bottles.
With the team becoming more familiar with this new car, a new record holder may be named for the Outlaw 10,5 class. In the meantime, we will have to settle for the planets fastest C7.
