Default Re: Ligenfelter Z06

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering does several different packages. I saw a video once of a Lingenfelter Vette from some TV show. They said that the owner asked LPE to build the fastest Vette they'd ever built, and what he got back was a stock-looking silver car with 800+ RWHP. It did the quarter in 8.95 seconds at 153 mph. According to this site it does 0-60 in 1.97 seconds. This was a C5 (2001), but it's a 427TT, similar (at least in displacement) to the Lingenfelter Z07 cars. I would guess that with the appropriate suspension and tires, the Lingenfelter Z07 cars should be in the low 2 second range for the most part, but I couldn't find any data to back that up.

Nomad,

The numbers on that site look wacky, I suspect they are wrong.

My friend seems to think this Vette can do a 0-60 in 1.7sec.

I've seen between 1.7 & 3.5sec big disparity; help us resolve this.

I don't think John Carmack's Testarossa (no I don't know if he still has it) could do that. I guarantee that monster had more horsepower than your buddy's Vette.

I'm not a car buff. I don't get excited about quarter-miles or engines or [censored]. I would buy that car in a second. That just looks like it'd be a blast to drive.

The video of the Atom from the UK TV series Top Gear is worth downloading if you can find it.

For now, yeah. I think I've got some travel coming up in January, though. In which case, you'll be more likely to find me at Ocean's Eleven than on here. That is, if you're in the San Diego area.
