Video: Twin-Turbo Corvette Z06 Hits 226 mph


While there is nothing in this video that says this Corvette actually hit 226 mph, it sure looks like it. After multiple viewings, I still can’t decide what was better: Seeing the Velocity Yellow Z06 Corvette screaming down an airport runway at speeds in excess of 200 mph, or hearing the Lingenfelter Twin-Turbo screaming down an airport runway at speeds in excess of 200 mph. On fly-bys this modified yet street legal Corvette sounds like a jet. The video is a bit long at 4 minutes and shows a number of runs at various angles. At :50 seconds left, there is footage from inside the Corvette and you can watch the driver run through the gears. My one question: Is he only getting it into 5th gear?

  1. yeah, probably only goes into 5th. 5th is actually the fastest gear in the C6 (i dont know about other generations as i drive a C6). 6th gear is effectively like an overdrive going beyond the 1:1 for higher cruising efficiency at lower rpm. 5th gear is where the top speed can be reached.

  2. Looks all of 226 to me. Looks like the front spoiler deforms significantly in the 4th or 5th video.
