Weren’t we just talking about all those 1,000-horsepower American sports cars a few days ago? In case you need more proof of that, here’s another mind-bending example: A Chevrolet Corvette C6 that was worked on by Late Model Racecraft to push out 1,600 horsepower. Built in collaboration with LMS and D2Forged Wheels, this berserker of a sports car could very well be one of the most powerful Corvettes you’ll find anywhere in the world.

This Corvette already has an impressive 6.2-liter V8 engine under its hood, one that produces 430 horsepower and 424 lb/ft of torque. Apparently for some people, those figures are just not worthy of their time. So they did what any right-minded tuning shop would do: tune it up to their standards.

The result is a Corvette C6 that carries a twin-turbocharged WarHawk motor, resulting in a dizzying output of 1,600 horsepower. We’ll repeat that in case you got confused: 1,600 horsepower.

And if that wasn’t extreme enough, Late Model Racecraft made sure to give the Corvette the look to match its output, courtesy of a Z06 widebody kit and a new set of 19" (front) and 18" (rear) three-piece D2Forged VS1 wheels.

With a car that carries such a significant mod set-up, there’s a big chance that this program will cost you more than what you’re willing to spend. Then again, 1600 horsepower is 1,600 horsepower, and a lot of people will pay premium money to have that much output on a Corvette.

Yeah! I have to agree that it really looks like a Lotus Elise, but I still find it more impressive than with Lotus. Moreover, I’m so fascinated with the engine of this one, very powerful and awesome!

It looks like a Lotus Elise on its platform except on its front design. However, I still find this Corvette C6 more appealing and attractive than on Elise. Good thing as well that it is more powerful and so fun to drive with!

Its sleek body paint gives the classy appearance on this Corvette, and I must say that it was oozing with angst most especially on its front design. Well, I just hope that it had also an impressive interior.

I just simply love the simplicity of this Concept of Subaru, and I have to agree that it is already looking great on it sleek and plain body paint. I just don’t think either that the engine of this one, could give a better performance on it.

This one is already looking great on its body paint, and the design of its front looks so angst on it, and I’m glad that they maintained the powerful and striking on it. Anyway, when will be the market production of this one?

The V8 engine of this one that can deliver 1,600 horsepower is really impressive on this race car, and I must say that for me, it is totally a complete packaged already, for it also had a striking exterior appearance.
