Corvette Of The Day: Specter Werkes/Sports 2008 Corvette GTR
This 2008 C6 Chevrolet Corvette has been extensively modified by Specter Werkes/Sports of Troy, Michigan to achieve greater power and speed. The LS3 V8 engine has been stroked to 6.8 liters with a Callies Performance Products 4340-forged crankshaft, Manley forged connecting rods, Mahle forged pistons, and various other supporting modifications. The engine produces a whopping 535 hp (398 kW) and 530 lb-ft (717 Nm) of torque, all without the aid of forced induction.
Power is sent exclusively to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. Inside, the car boasts two-tone leather upholstery, four-point racing harnesses, carbon fiber trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, and cruise control. The body kit is also quite unique, featuring a tasteful integration of the rear decklid, spoiler, and lighting, as well as a diffuser that houses the exhaust tips.
