Just as the 2009 Corvette ZR1 made automotive history as the most powerful automobile ever sold by General Motors, famed Corvette masters Lingenfelter Performance Engineering stepped in and took it over the top. Serial number 6 of 1,415 produced, this ZR1 is powered by the original, numbers-matching 6.2-liter LS9 aluminum-block V8 equipped with an intercooled, four-lobe Eaton Twin Vortices Series supercharger, which increased power from the factory rating of 638 to an astounding 710 horses. It has participated in the Hot Rod Power Tour, Corvette Funfest, and the Texas Mile event of October 22–24, 2010, at the Goliad Texas Airport—with a best run of 185.9 mph.
