Even though Specter Werkes first introduced the C6 GTR last summer, they have continued to make improvements to the package. Now that SEMA is just around the corner, the Troy, Michigan-based tuner has unleashed perhaps the best variant yet to the GTR family – this one featuring BASF Blue Pearl paint, HRE Carbon Fiber wheels and a twin turbo LS7 V8 courtesy of Lingenfelter which produces a mind-blowing 800 horsepower. The Specter Werkes GTR Corvette will be prominently displayed outside the Las Vegas Convention Center as a feature car for HRE Wheels.
Based on the Corvette Z06 model, this GTR features the dramatic bodywork and styling that is a hallmark of Specter Werkes. However, this new GTR is the first that was built in collaboration with Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, with a Lingenfelter twin-turbo system powering the car â€“ and pumping its 7.0-liter LS7 engine to 800 horsepower.
“Specter GTRs have been featured at SEMA for many years and we’re excited to debut the most unique example to date at this year’s show,” said Jeff Nowicki, president of Specter Werkes/Sports. “From the BASF pearl paint and HRE carbon wheels, to the Lingenfelter engine, there’s never been a GTR like this one and we think it will resonate with sports car enthusiasts of all stripes.”
Another first for the Specter Werks GTR is the HRE CF40 carbon fiber wheels. The black wheels weigh only 22 pounds each and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Zero Pressure tires. Other features include StopTech STR big-brake package, featuring six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers, Corsa exhaust system with GTR-specific exhaust tips, matte-finish carbon fiber accents, including the headlamp housing, front splitter, outside mirrors and more. On the inside you’ll find Spinneybeck hand-tipped leather interior accents as well.
You can see the Specter Werkes GTR live and in-person at the SEMA show starting November 3rd at the Las Vegas Convention center.
