The C7 made a blisteringly quick 4.11 second eighth-of-a-mile pass at 188 mph, followed by slower runs at 4.82 seconds and 4.27 seconds as the tail end got a bit squirrelly. That onslaught of acceleration comes courtesy of a big screw-type supercharger, helping to generate a respectable 3,500 horsepower at the motor. It shows.
Impressively, this Corvette doesn’t just wear some aftermarket fiberglass body. Rather, every body panel on the car – aside from its molded one-piece front end – is original factory. Given its early show of speed, this C7 ought to get quite a bit quicker too.
