One of the hottest cars on the just-underway Hot Rod Power Tour is sure to be this Continental Extreme Yellow C7 Corvette.
The wild Corvette is the result of a collaboration between Continental Tire and the legendary Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
The one-of-a-kind Corvette will draw a lot of attention during the seven-cities-in-seven-days Hot Rod Power Tour, which kicked off Saturday in Baton Rouge, La., and ends Friday in Kansas City, Mo.
Under the hood lurks an LT1 engine with Lingenfelter’s package that bumps horsepower to 625-plus and torque to 600 ft-lb, thanks to a Magnusson supercharger and Borla exhaust.
Of course the first thing you notice is the ACS wide-body kit covered with AzkoNobel Coatings Continental Extreme yellow paint, riding atop 20-inch Forgeline forged aluminum wheels covered with 335/25ZR20 Continental ExtremeContact DW tires.
Extreme customization inside and out also includes an ACS carbon fiber extraction hood and spoiler kit, along with rear quarter air intakes and lower air diffusers and ground effects.
If you miss the Power Tour this week, don’t worry. You can still see this awesome Corvette throughout the year at major race and automobile venues, including the 2016 SEMA show in Las Vegas.
The end result, according to Continental and Lingenfelter, “is a summer-ready C7 Corvette that looks and feels like a race car with the poise and temperament of a daily driver.”
