The Five Fastest C7 Corvette Tuner Packages

From superchargers, to turbos and naturally aspirated motor rebuilds, the new C7 Corvette gets some serious power upgrades from these tuners.

[gallery] There's really no need for a power boost in the already stout 430 horsepower C7 Corvette, but we wouldn't turn down the change for a few extra HPs. If you can't wait for the massively powerful, racetrack-ready Z06 to become available in early 2015, these five aftermarket tuners will make sure you have plenty of oomph for the time being. Hennessey HPE700 Twin-Turbo—Hennessey's MO has been to supply twin turbos on its car for quite some time now and the new HPE700 is no different. With 708hp at 6,300rpm from the turbos, fuel system upgrade and Hennessey's propreitary software calibration, there's no doubt this variation will be fast but it should also be reliable. Hell, they even throw in a 1 year/12,000 mile warranty. Click here for more information Lingenfelter 417 CID Engine Package—For the crazy ones out there, Lingenfelter offers an engine package pushing north of 1,000 horsepower. Yes, 1-0-0-0. Lingenfelter removes the stock LT1 in favor of their own block preparation, including Competition Cams, twin turbos and JE Forged pistons into the mix; essentially making this Corvette a 1/4 mile heat-seeking missile. Click here for more information Callway Corvette SC610—Coming stock with a Eaton TVS2300 Supercharger System, Callaway offers the best looks of the trio plus optional accessories such as: Callaway Nordschleife dampers, Callaway LeMans brake system and even delivery at the Corvette Museum. If you're into that sort of thing. Click here for more information Late Model Racecraft LM630 "Reaper"—LMR offers a custom torque converter for the automatic Vettes who want the 10.66 1/4 mile treatment. This all motor package includes LMR's own cylinder heads, induction package and exhaust for a nasty (as in good) sounding effect. For the daily drivers who want bone-stock looks (and also want to shell out $13,000) but Z06 performance, this is a great route. Click here for more information East Coast Supercharging NOVI 1500—With race-inspired components (no duh) and over 1,000 WHP with the optional NOVI 2200R head unti, the NOVI 1500 kit is for those few people who have nine lives and a lot of tarmac ahead of them. Overkill might be the right word, but we won't use it here. No way. Click here for more information

Test Drive - 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

It’s not every day Chevrolet rolls out a new Corvette. On January 17, 1953, the very first Corvette was revealed at the Detroit Motor Show; almost 60 years later to the day (January 13, 2013), Chevy pulled the wraps off the seventh-generation car: the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

GM Supercharged C7 Corvette Motor Pics Leaked; No One Entirely Sure Where It's Going

ZR1? Z07? Z06? Bueller?

If you ask us, the C6 Corvette lineup was pretty much the ideal performance spread for America's sports car. Base, Grand Sport, Z06, ZR1; each bump up the 'Vette food chain offered a well-rounded increase in performance and badassitude, along with an appropriate increase in price. So we have no idea why Chevrolet would muck around with that for the C7 generation, but it seems they might.

There Seems To Be Some Confusion About The C7 Corvette Z06

Starting with the name.

There's a new report in Car and Driver that purports to have the scoop on the next-generation of the Corvette Z06 lineage. Which we always want to hear about. Only problem is, in this case, it's directly contradicting something else we heard. Let's take a look at the two reports, shall we?
