[PICS] C5 Corvette Wins Our WTF Award With Tacky Stick-On Upgrades

Okay, we don’t actually have a “WTF Award” but if we did, this red C5 Corvette from the state of Washington would be a major contender. We haven’t seen a Corvette this messed up since the infamous Dragon Vette.

A Corvette Forum moderator named MasterDave spotted this Corvette in a Pet’s Mart parking lot in Federal Way, Washington.

Yesterday when we posted the dyno graph from Vengeance Racing which showed the new C7 Corvette Z06 generating 585 rear wheel horsepower and 617 lb-ft of torque, we speculated that more dyno tests would be needed to see if Chevrolet was sandbagging conservatively estimating the power numbers for the new supercharged super car.

We now have a new video from the guys at High Tech Corvette which features a black 2015 Corvette Z06 on a Mustang 1100 dynometer and those results were equally impressive.
