Bad news if you were naïve enough to believe that we here in the States have a monopoly on tuning our own cars; the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette, more than any past iteration, belongs to the world.
The photo above is of a Corvette Stingray bolstered by Austrian tuning outfit O.CT. The 6.2-liter LT1 is no longer normally-aspirated, as the company has installed an Edelbrock supercharger – and as we’ve all recently learned, those two make for a winning combo.
Austria’s O.CT also offers an optional performance exhaust system, made from stainless steel (what else?), and of course, the ECU on this car is tuned by the company to suit the new parts.
Corvette Blogger reports that with the additional equipment – optional exhaust included – the O.CT Corvette Stingray is putting out 621 HP and 612 lb-ft of torque. Not quite so good as some of the efforts made by Lingenfelter or Hennessey, nor Chevrolet’s own Z06 model, but it’s certainly nothing to sneeze at, and we’re happy to see other countries enjoying America’s sweetheart.
So keep on tuning, Austria. We look forward to what you make next.
