Well, if you’ve been thinking about hopping up your C6 and wondered if the chassis could handle more horsepower, then look no further than the amazing Laraki Motors Epitome Concept that wowed the crowds at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance last weekend.

If you’re rich enough, you can build a car and then name it after yourself, which is apparently what Abdesslam Laraki, a yachting industry mogul, did.

And who could blame him for wanting to see his name on this monster.

The Laraki packs a potent punch, using what’s believed to be a Z06 C6 chassis and a massively reworked 7.0-liter Chevrolet small block with twin turbos that can deliver upwards of 1,750 horsepower.

The car has two fuel tanks – one for your run-of-the-mill gas and another for 110 octane racing fuel. Using only the latter produces just 1,200 horsepower, but you can push a button to switch over to a mixture of both fuels and you’ll get an estimated 1,750 horsepower.

The car is dazzling to look at, with an appearance similar to the Bugatti Veyron, and has massive amounts of carbon fiber to help keep its weight down to about 2,800 pounds.

Of course, this monster of a machine doesn’t come cheap. Each of the nine examples that will be made in the early going will go for a cool $2 million.

And to think, you were worried about having the money to fill TWO tanks with fuel. Definitely not a problem if you can afford this baby.

On the other hand, the same amount would buy a whopping 39 2014 Stingrays, which sounds like a much better way to spend $2 million to us. No more worrying about mixing and matching the exterior and stripe colors – just buy one of each.
