Velocity’s Car Crazy this week will feature the immense car collection of Ken Lingenfelter. You’ll recognize Ken Lingenfelter as the owner of aftermarket superpower Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. The episode of Car Crazy, hosted by Barry Meguiar, debuts Monday, September 14th on Discovery’s Velocity channel.
The Lingenfelter Collection, is housed in a 40,000-square-foot building in suburban Detroit. It consists of a rotating cast of over 200 diverse automobiles. Current residents of Ken’s collection include many Corvettes, a Bugatti Veyron, a Lamborghini Reventon, and a 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari. The Lingenfelter Collection is unique in the fact that it doesn’t really have a theme. If Ken likes it, and thinks it’s cool he buys it.
Some of the significant Corvettes in the collection include a 1953 Supercharged Corvette, the 1954 Duntov Mule, several Callaways, 2 Guldtrand GS90’s, a couple of Greenwoods, and of course all the latest offerings from Lingenfelter Performance Engineering including their new Level One and Level Two tuned C7 Z06s.
The collection is not open to the public, but rather used as a venue for tours and fund raisers for several charities via The Lingenfelter Foundation. Through the years, the Collection and Foundation have collected donations to help fight breast cancer and juvenile diabetes. They also support youth organizations and many other worthwhile causes.
We’ve been fortunate to visit The Lingenfelter Collection on several occasions. If you’ve never had a chance to see it in person be sure to set your DVRs for Velocity channel at 7:30 pm ET today or visit carcrazycentral.com for details on repeat episodes.
