Meanest C7 Corvette You’ve Ever Seen Is a 3,500 HP Outlaw Racer

Don’t Let the lack of sponsor decals on the C7 ‘Vette in the video below trick you into believing this machine has all that much in common with the Corvette Stingray you can meet in the showroom. Ladies and gentlemen drag racers, meet the most badass current-generation Corvette so far.

We are not aware of the Chevrolet’s full specs since what you see here are the first runs of the car. Nevertheless, the supercharged rumor mill points to a 3,500 HP output. A screw-type blower is the one responsible for that.

Right now, you might be wondering how much it would cost to put such an animal together. While the standard C7 comes with an MSRP of $55 grand, the budget for this drag racer can multiply that figure by six.

This started out in life as a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, with work on the project debuting in February last year. While the owner claims every panel on the car comes from the factory, the front end had to be built into a one-piece custom part.

Remember, these were the first competitive runs of the car, with the Corvette managing to pull low 4-second eight mile passes at the Cecil County Dragway in Maryland. Considering that the fastest car in the 10.5 class is only about .2 seconds quicker, we might just see a new champion in the future.

The basics of the Outlaw 10.5 class

For those unfamiliar with the treats of the Outlaw 10.5 class, you should should know the limitations here are few. The 10.5-inch rear slicks, whose tread width actually measures 11.25 inches is chief among the rules.

While having to stick to a stock firewall, a 3.000 lbs package, stock front suspension and mufflers, the possibilities are endless. For one thing, you can go for whatever engine size or boost choice, so long as you stay off that trouble-making nitrous.
