Setting a new world speed record in any production based vehicle is no average challenge to tackle. This C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is now the world’s fastest with a stock engine and manual transmission. That means that, while it boasts huge horsepower, it still has the base 6.2L powerplant that the factory made.
World Record With Stock Internals
With no forged internals, we’re wondering how it contains the explosive power of generating 1000 horsepower. This car is no longer the sports car it once was even though the rear differential and gearbox are also still stock.
However, to get to this level of power, this C7 has been run down the route of a Procharger. This means that there’s a turbocharger driven by a belt building compression and helping to deliver that 1000.
