This 3,000 horsepower Z06 Corvette is absolutely nuts! 1,000 horsepower is good. 2,000 horsepower is better. 3,000 horsepower is asking for trouble.
It seems the guys over at Kelly Bise and KP Racing have been hard at work for the last 3 years putting together what may possibly be the highest horsepower “streetable” Z06 Corvette in the world. Then again, after watching the video, the word “streetable” may be a bit of a stretch.
Kelly indicated that the Z06 was running 2,100 horsepower at the tires on 29 lbs of boost during the run in the video. The car is capable of 52 lbs of boost and 3,000 horsepower when cranked up to its maximum performance level.
Clearly the car is difficult to handle at the 2,100 hp level let alone 3,000. The Z06 can be seen losing traction and getting air at 190 miles per hour during the pass in the video. Call me crazy but you would think that if you’re going to put up to 3,000 horsepower in a Z06 Corvette you may want to add a bit of downforce to keep the car planted, right?
Check out the video of this crazy fast, 3,000 horsepower capable, Z06 Corvette in action.
