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.
