1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette,
cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream
that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack"
article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of
a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less
weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The
idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine,
rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish
with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette
upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower,
Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a
wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of
course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Hennessey C7 Corvette Runs 200 MPH on Texas Toll Road
On December 11, 2013, a 700 HP Hennessey C7 became the first 2014 Corvette
Stingray to break the 200 mph barrier by reaching a maximum speed of 200.6
mph. This was achieved on a closed section of the Grand Parkway which
connects I-10 to Hwy. 290 on the west side of Houston, Texas. Officials
from TxDOT, Texas DPS and TransCore were on hand to witness the testing of
the EZ tag toll system. Special thanks to TxDOT Chairman, Ted Houghton.
The Hennessey C7 Corvette was equipped with the company's HPE600 upgrade
with the addition of a 100 HP Nitrous
Express kit. For more information, please visit

The 2015 Corvette Z06: Is it Enough?
The C7 Z06 is being asked to carry the mantle of both track toy and
supercar - does the latest, greatest Chevy have shoulders broad enough for
the task? Can it replace both the C6 Z06 and ZR1, or does asking it to fill
both roles mean it doesn't excel at either? We drive the new top Corvette
on the track and street to answer that question.
