Experimental Corvette -- SS
General Motors recruited engineer and race car driver, Zora Arkus Duntov, to help them inject some performance into their brands. Duntov wanted to make the Corvette competitive with sports cars from Europe like Ferrari and Maserati. To gain respect it needed to win on the track. He organized a team to build the SS or "Experimental Corvette" and took it to Sebring.





Corvette SS Preps for Race at Sebring 1957
The 1957 Corvette SS 'concept car', was built in order to race at the 24 Hours of LeMans. Two chassis were built, 'the Mule' and the car to be raced. Its first race would be the test for its preparations at LeMans. This race at the 12 Hours of Sebring would determine whether it could take on the world at LeMans. Famed engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov, had lead a team of engineers to build this ultra-lightweight (1850 lbs) and powerful (307 horsepower) racing car. They were inspired by the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing and the Birdcage Maserati. To keep weight down, they used a magnesium body that surrounded a tubular steel frame with coil-over-shock front suspension, a de Dion rear axle and aluminum drum brakes. Its fuel-injected small-block V8 could turn out 307 horsepower at 6,400 RPM.





Sounds of 1961 Corvette
This is from a 1961 Sales Demo 33 1/3 recording. Zora Arkus-Duntov - The name Zora Arkus-Duntov has long been inextricably linked with Corvette in the minds of automotive historians and enthusiasts. But the story of Zora Arkus-Duntov runs far deeper than his twenty plus years of professional involvement as both Corvette's primary advocate within General Motors and as the fiberglass sports car's first chief engineer.





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. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/RoadkillShow, http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/hotrodmagazine Google + - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com





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.

n2a Motors' Bitchin' 789
Fred Kanter is part genius, part visionary and part eccentric. He's the kind of guy who makes you believe he could move mountains by his belief in the power of his ideas and the sheer strength of will to bring those ideas to fruition. That's why it was such a pleasure to meet him and his concept vehicle, the 789, a combination of a 1957 Chevrolet front faschia, the interior of a 1958 Chevy and the tail fins of a 1959, all built on a Corvette C6 frame. His company, N2A Motors, which stands for No 2 Alike, builds these one-of-a-kind vehicles. Someday, I hope to tour his warehouse in New Jersey, where he's fortunate to store several Ford concept vehicles, in addition to some of his other creations.
