It’s not like the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 isn’t already one of the hottest supercars to come out of Detroit. Well, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering felt it could make it better. The tuner added some modifications to the ZR1, providing it with a total of 739-hp and a peak torque of 740 lb-ft.
The tuning helped the Lingenfelter 2009 C6 Corvette ZR1 achieve three 9 second runs, hitting a best of 9.813 quarter-mile at 145.74 mph at the Maryland International Raceway, Budds Creek, Md.
“The track is the ultimate proving grounds to showcase Lingenfelter’s years of engineering expertise and to test the performance capabilities of our ZR1,” said Ken Lingenfelter, owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “We are excited to continue developing product that pushes this sports car to the limit.”
Lingenfelter says that the 9 second quarter-mile was done with stock exhaust manifolds and a factory catback exhaust with a “Mild-to-Wild” switch.
