Which engine builder, Lingenfelter? Maybe they're leaving it alone in case buyers want to run it in a certain series.

That car has got to be insanely fast as it is though

Riced up? I'm pretty sure everything on here is there for the sole reason of making this car fast...

So its all for looks, a few suspension mods and some weight saving? Not to mention its not a production trim nor is it street legal. At least the other 3 cars are productions and this will never keep up with the Viper ACR, the Corvette's real rival.

what are you basing that on? the ACR isnt THAT much faster in a straight line than a stock Z06, this thing has to weigh less and i'm sure handles fantastic.

Very cool!.. Though not a boss competetor by any means. Ford is making great cars for the masses, while Government Motors requires $65g for a great auto. Anyone can afford a mustang. The same can be said for the camaro, but the chassis is based off the Malibu and is too heavy.

This is one of the 2010 GT2 Corvettes that that competed this season. All race cars benefit from extra downforce.

I don't know many drivers who could push this car to the limit at the track, but I've love to see them try.
