We never thought we would see anything as cool as the 1400 HP Camaro Dragster revealed in 2010 by Canadian automotive research and development firm, ECT Enterprises. This Camaro actually belonged to the owner of ECT and was built because the owner had a vision that no one else seemed to grasp. One year later and that vision seems to have spread to another model in Chevrolet’s lineup: the Corvette.
Unheralded Canadian tuner, Elite Tuners of Canada, spent the last four months building and developing an enormously powerful Chevrolet Corvette C6 that it finally unveiled at the 2011 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Canada,
The new Corvette Top Tuner 5 , as it’s being called, is a specially developed race-inspired Chevrolet Corvette that features a new LSX 376 Crate Motor from GM Performance and Pro Charger F1R, producing a staggering total output of 920 horsepower and 700 lb/ft of torque.

In addition to the massive performance boost given to the engine, the ETC Corvette Top Tuner 5 was also dressed with a custom wide-body kit, to go with carbon fiber accents on the spoiler courtesy of APR Performance. ETC also dressed up the Corvette’s body with a unique Gold Rush multi-coat candy color finish. The Corvette Top Tuner 5 also sits on a set of custom iForgeed Legacy V2 wheels wrapped in ultra-wide Pirelli tires.
Inside the car, ETC added a custom roll cage on the tuned-up Corvette C6 to go with a newly installed STACK system and a Pioneer sound system.
We’re pleasantly surprised that a Canadian tuning firm would be responsible for modifying a Corvette C6 to this degree. Not that those guys don’t know anything about the wonderful world of car modification, but with so many aftermarket shops in the US, you would’ve thought that this program was built here and not north of the border. Nonetheless, we have to give props to the awesome job done by Elite Tuners of Canada. A 900-horsepower Corvette is no small task by any stretch of the imagination.
