Corvette C6 news - The full Werkes - 2009
The SEMA show kicks off next week in Las Vegas. The world’s biggest tuning show, it’ll be packed to the brim with hotted-up, bodykitted, modified metal - including, as always, many many Corvette-based creations.
There shall not - we predict - be many Corvette-based creations at SEMA scarier than this, the C6 GTR from the intriguingly named Michigan-based tuning firm Specter Werkes (don’t you just hate it when just keep picking ‘E’s out of the Scrabble bag?).
Corvette’s 7.0-litre ‘LS7’ V8 has been stoked up to a mighty 800bhp, all channelling to the road through those carbon fibre rear wheels.
Specter Werkes is yet to release performance figures, but we reckon the GTR (original choice of name by the way, guys) could show the supercharged Corvette ZR1 a clean pair of hilariously oversized exhausts in a straight line.
Speaking of exhausts, do the GTR’s pipes remind you just a little bit of Darth Vader’s chin? No? Just us?
Now watch Clarkson thrash the Z06 back in 2006:
