Death Star – 1954 ZR1 Corvette

Greetings fellow drag racing aficionados from both street and strip. This clip is for all the true car lovers out there. If you believe that an automobile can also be a work of art; you will truly appreciate this video.

Timeless Kustoms (Camarillo, CA) is known for building beautifully, custom-crafted, hand-made, high-performance vehicles from the ground up. Before the ZR1 was officially introduced to consumers in 2009, Jason at TK managed to convince GM to pass him an LS9 engine slated for use in one of the first 100 ZR1 units.

Jason took the supercharged 6.2-liter mill and added only a set of exhaust headers and Lingenfelter pulleys before cramming it into a custom-chassis 1954 Chevrolet Corvette that weighs only 2,100-pounds. Since the engine makes nearly 600whp, the power-to-weight ratio makes it a virtual road rocket. High-performance suspension and brakes make it as much fun to drive through the canyon curves as down the 1320.

Climb on-board as our cameraman is treated to a ride along in this one-of-a-kind creation.

Check out the end of the video for some exclusive footage of Vicious, a million-dollar Mustang that makes Eleanor look like a pedal car.
