The Gumball 3000 road rally must be kicking off soon as all of a sudden I keep hearing about this monster C7 Corvette Z06 that’s part of the group. Not only is it a C7 Corvette Z06, it’s being described as a Z06 C7.R Edition that with some mods makes 925 bhp.

When production of the C7 Corvette Z06 first started, the supercharged 650-horsepower LT4 engine was being assembled in two different locations. The Performance Build Center inside the factory was hand-assembling the LT4 but as Z06 sales were outpacing the PBC’s engine-building capacity, LT4s were also being sent to the Bowling Green Assembly Plant from GM’s Tonawanda powertrain facility in New York to make up the difference.
Now, thanks to the efforts of new plant manager Kai Spande, we are pleased to hear that all Corvette Z06 LT4 engines are now being assembled by hand inside the Performance Build Center in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
