2010 Chevrolet Corvette Redline HTR-GS640/SC

Howard Tanner from Redline Motorsports and Dan Carlton from DeNooyer Performance are officially a pair of geniuses. They have taken a 2010 Corvette Grand Sport loaded with a 3LT package in cyber gray metallic with a red interior and transformed it into a luscious Redline HTR-GS640/SC. Yeah, we know that’s a lot of letters, but broken down, the car’s name is simply the "Howard Tanner Redline – Grand Sport 640hp Super Charged".

They didn’t receive the Corvette bare, however. The Corvette Grand Sport was ordered with removable roof panel, Competition Gray aluminum wheels, optional two-tone seats, Nav system, and a full-width spoiler. Add some custom stripes applied by DeNooyer and you get a machine that stands for around $64,000. After this "base" was achieved the supercharged heaven on wheels got an Edelbrock E-Force blower, a new cam, heavy valve springs, chromemoly pushrods, titanium retainers and heavy-duty keepers, a set of Borla stainless mufflers, and an MGW short-throw shifter. These amazing added extras brought the car to 640hp at the crank and 566hp at the rear wheels (up from a standard 436 HP).

Not only do you get amazing performance with tremendous styling, but DeNooyer Performance is even offering a 3 year/36,000-mile warranty with the Redline HTR-GS640/SC, plus you get it at the bargain price of $82,000. That’s not a bad deal considering you will be able to brag about having a Grand Sport model with the same power as any ZR1 on the market, and at a cheaper price.

So you can actually get the name out of your mouth on the first try.

The GS is an odd duck, since it’s a mix of parts from the other Corvette models. You can get it in an auto (yuck), it’s wide bodied like the Z06 and ZR1, you can get it with the magnetic suspension from the ZR1, and you can get it in either the Targa or the convertible (I think). A key differentiators, though, would be the platform material. The GS is steel, like the base Vette, while the Z06 and ZR1 use aluminum. I’m not sure how much of the CF and other exotic bits that GS has, either... but the GS does weigh a bit more. Aside from that, the LS3 that’s used is a little different (due to it’s sump system); as such, some bolt-on need to be creatively mounted.

Now this is a real Corvette, not only the paint is great but overall the machine is a beast itself. I really like the red paint on this one.
