Last year, Callaway produced a special run of 25 Grand Sports to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Callaway’s RPO B2K – the first turbo-charged Corvettes offered by the factory. These special B2K Anniversary Corvettes were snapped up quickly and now we hear the only one left for sale in the entire country is at Criswell Corvette – the #3/25 B2K Callaway Corvette.
Chevy hasn’t been forthcoming about what, if any, tricks are up its sleeve to increase the horsepower in future renditions of the C7.
We’ve been left to hope that the much beloved Z06 and ZR1 will live on in the new generation of the Corvette.
Now comes a little more hope for at least a ZR1, thanks to a photo taken by Car and Driver as the Stingray convertible prepared to make its debut in Geneva this week. The magazine reports that a close examination of photos after returning to the office reveals a PSI gauge in the instrument cluster of the subject convertible that is similar to the one in the current supercharged C6 ZR1.
C6 Corvette owners looking for more power have often turned to supercharging their LS3 engines but in doing so, it often required the expense of adding a new high rise hood to insure the proper fit. At the 2012 SEMA show, we learned that Magnuson will be offering their new “Heartbeat” TVS supercharger that fits under the stock hood of an LS3-equipped Corvette.
The Edelbrock name is legendary when it comes to performance.
Legendary hot rodder Vic Edelbrock and his daughter Christi recently took a few moments to talk about their supercharger for the Corvette Z06 with Adam Carolla and Matt D’Andria, hosts of the online video series CarCast. You can see their interesting conversation on this video we found.
