We’ve been telling you for months about the amazing performance of the C8 Corvette, which officially manages a time of 11.3 seconds at 121 mph in the quarter-mile, according to Chevy.
Since then, that number has continued to decrease, with Car and Driver reporting a time of 11.2 seconds at 122 mph. In March, Carlyle Racing pulled a 10.65 at 130 mph with a nitrous bottle in the frunk. The next month, Mike at Brink of Speed reported a 10.95 with a bone stock car.
Today, we’re happy to report that a 2020 Corvette with an Extreme Turbo ETS kit became the first C8 to break the 10-second barrier, pulling a time of 9.95 seconds with 15 psi of methanol boost at Woodburn Dragstrip in Woodburn, Oregon. Two earlier runs produced times of 10.49 and 10.05.
This Stingray also was outfitted with the optional ETS Intercooler with Ice Box, Precision Turbochargers (H-Cover ETS Spec), Precision 46mm wastegates, Mahle pistons, Raybestos Prototype Clutch, Ferrea Valvetrain, Direct Port Methanol Kit with appropriate tuning, and Mickey Thompson 19″ drag radials.
“We’re just getting started with the 2020 C8 Corvette and we’ve already set a couple new records!” Extreme Turbo boasts in a YouTube video posted this week. “Stay tuned as we continue to push the C8 platform to new limits and set even more records!”
In the video, we also see some impressive work on the dyno by this car.
With 20 psi of boost, this Stingray became the first to crack the 1,000 whp mark, delivering 1,021 whp and 916.840 lb-ft of torque.
Two other runs with lower boost produced 872 whp and 826.120 lb-ft of torque at 13 psi and 980.150 whp and 883.370 lb-ft of torque at 18 psi.
