This is the Laraki Motors Epitome concept. OK, so it's built on a C6 Corvette chassis, but wait till you hear the numbers...
The 7.0-litre V8's been gutted and refitted with beefed up internals so it can handle the two turbochargers that Laraki's strapped on. Which means 1,200 horsepower using normal petrol. But if you hit a button, the engine feeds from a different petrol tank - which you fill with 110 octane race fuel - and changes its ECU map, raising output to 1,750hp. Bonkers. Like the $2 million pricetag.
