C7 TOPLESS!

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible revealed

It’s no heavier and it’s got the same 450bhp 6.2-litre V8

 

The fact that Chevy’s ripped the roof off its Corvette Stingray doesn’t come as much of a surprise – the American sportster was always designed to be a drop-top, so it’s never been integral to the structure.

The only changes are limited to accommodations for the folding top and repositioned safety belt mounts, which means it won’t get a watered-down engine. It’ll keep that lovely 450bhp 6.2-litre V8 that twists out 450lb ft of torque through either a seven-speed manual or six-speed auto’. Chevy expects the 0-62mph time to take less than four seconds, too, because the coupe and ‘vert share almost identical power-to-weight ratios.

Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. “Because it was designed from the beginning as an open-top car, the Corvette Stingray delivers an exhilarating, connected driving experience – no matter what configuration you choose.”

Like its predecessor, the fully automatic roof’ll be fabric not metal, and you’ll be able to raise and lower it at up to 30mph.

A Heart Pounding 625 HP LINGENFELTER Motor

How do you want the world to see you!

Ever since I first heard that playing on my kid’s IPod, I’ve wanted to say that and mean it. The fact of the matter is, I’d never say that about myself, but you can be damn sure I’d say that about one of the projects we’ve built at GTS Customs.

Take a look at the pictures of this build. This client came to us originally 8 years ago. He comes to us from North Carolina and he’s no stranger to High Performance! This sexy beast is owned by Charlie Lingenfelter. His brother was none other than John Lingenfelter, the genius behind some of the most powerful motors in the world.

The name John Lingenfelter has become a legend in the world of performance engineering. For over 30 years, Lingenfelter has been synonymous with world-class performance, taking great cars and trucks and reinventing them with legendary precision.

Pure Adrenalin

Today, Charlie has combined the legendary power under the hood that Lingenfelter is known for and combined it with the state of the art chassis, drive train and body GTS Customs is known for.

This insanely sexy car has over 625 HP and as you can see, if the polish and shine won’t turn your head, the roar of the motor most assuredly will!
