The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is considered the most powerful Corvette in history, boasting of an LS9 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces a supercar-worthy 638 horsepower and 604 lb/ft of torque output. German tuning firm, TIKT, thinks that those eye-popping numbers aren’t good enough, and just like any self-respecting tuning house on the planet, they’ve set out to add even more ponies to the mighty American sportscar.
To give the Corvette ZR1 some extra juice, TIKIT unloaded a number of upgrades on the sportscar, including modified cylinder heads, new camshafts, more powerful valve springs, modified compressor ratios, a larger throttle valve, and a custom exhaust system. In addition to all of these, TIKT also improved the Corvette ZR1’s cooling system, making it even more efficient than before.
Suspension details on the sportscar were improved, thanks in large part to new race shocks and a lowering capability of 30mm. To round things off, TIKT fitted the ZR1 with a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a new set of Zerra Ultralight Evo 2 wheels, and high performance brakes.
All told, TIKT’s comprehensive tuning program on the Corvette ZR1 saw the sportscar’s output increase from its standard numbers all the way up to 760 horsepower and 671 lb/ft of torque.
