Instead, we're looking at a Corvette Stingray, with the thing having managed to complete the 1,320 feet task in 8.0 seconds. And since the trap speed of the car sat at a mighty 170 mph, this also made it the world's fastest C7 'Vette (the elapsed time brought it the world's quickest C7 Corvette accolade).
The animal was sent to the gym by Late Model Racecraft, a developer that's based in Texas. Nevertheless, the specialist hasn't disclosed the details of the build for now, only mentioning that a fifth-generation LT motor is under the hood.
And, judging by the list of partners mentioned on the developer's Facebook page, the V8 powering the machine works with Procharger hardware (think: belt-driven turbos), American Racing Headers, a Nitrous Express setup, an RPM tranny and others, such as the Mickey Thompson slicks used to put the power down.
The stunning run, which is documented in the brief video that awaits you at the bottom of the page, took place at the Evadale Raceway.
Of course, with the Chevy having covered the quarter-mile task in 8 seconds flat, the way for a 7s run has been paved.
As always with such builds, increasing the boost alone is not the way to go, as the rest of the car has to keep up with the process, regarding both remaining in one piece and putting the muscle to the asphalt.
