Corvette Of The Day: 2009 Specter Werkes Corvette GTR
2009 Specter Werkes Corvette GTR
Specter Werkes/Sports is an automotive prototype and fabrication facility based in Troy, Mich. It specializes in race-proven engine performance enhancements and creating specialty accessories for the C5 and C6 Corvette, the Cadillac CTS and more.
Based on the Corvette Z06, this 2009 Specter Werkes Corvette GTR represented the collaboration between Specter Werkes and Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, with a Lingenfelter twin-turbo system powering the car – and pumping its 7.0-liter LS7 engine to 800 horsepower.
Featuring dramatic bodywork and carbon fiber details, the GTR blends racing-inspired design cues with uncompromising luxury and performance. The Specter Werkes/Sports GTR package was available on all C6 Corvette models, including the base coupe and convertible, the Z06 and ZR1.
