2010 Specter Werkes Corvette GTR Gets Our Motors Running


2010-Specter-Werkes-Corvette-GTR-Wheels-Brakes

Officially unveiled at the 2009 SEMA Show, Specter Werkes has shown the public what their 2010 C6 GTR is made of. Based on the mighty 500 horsepower Z06 platform, this Vette is far from stock.  Powered by Lingenfelter’s twin-turbo system for the LS7, this C6 now boasts 800 horsepower to the wheels and enough torque to spin the world backwards.

A custom body kit, vented hood, front lip and matte-black rear fascia clean up the exterior.  Overall, I think it looks good, but those rear exhaust tips are a little over the top.  Carbon fiber wheels adorn each corner, wrapped in Pilot Sport PS2 rubber, surrounding a StopTech 6-piston BBK.  The wheels are made by HRE and weigh in at only 22 pounds each, not bad for 20’s! Press release and 5 more pics after the break!

Lambo SuperVeloce vs Corvette ZR1


The blokes over at AutoCar were lucky enough to pit two of the worlds fastest and most highly regarded super cars in the world. The Lambo SV has 670 Italian-bred ponies in the boot and all wheel drive, making it go from 0-60 in negative three seconds… well, maybe it can’t defy space and time, but it’s still ridiculously fast. The ZR1, on the other hand, has 30 less horsepower and 60 more pounds, meaning the Lambo should have a solid edge over the bowtie. Watch and learn why American muscle is king.
