After all, why be satisfied with 436 hp when you get to 588 horsepower by adding a 2.3 liter supercharger? GeigerCars claims the Corvette with now run 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds and has a top speed of 209 mph.

Loma Performance Unveils the Corvette C6.BlackforceOne

German-based tuner Loma Performance takes the term “wide body” to a whole new realm with its “BlackforceOne” Corvette package.
