Ridetech came, and conquered. Just like the 48 hour Camaro build the team accomplished, Ridetech set out to build a track machine with a C3 Corvette of neglected stature. If you tuned in for the live broadcast of the build, you’d have seen a successful process. If you didn’t tune in, we’ve provided a video of the car in action at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park.
With the help of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering‘s 650 hp, 427 cubic-inch LS7 engine and a host of other sponsors, the team was able to build and tune every major component on the car to deliver an outstanding build capable of clipping apexes all day long. The Corvette has been finished in yellow paint hue, aping the C7.R Corvette race cars, and one of the coolest touches on the car is the addition of custom “48 Hour Corvette” gauges, matching the exterior color perfectly.
The build was completed in three 16 hour shifts, allowing for a few moment of shut-eye, but ultimately this build was completed on blood, sweat, tears, dedication and we’re sure more than a few cups of coffee.
Check out the Corvette as it does battle with a C7 Corvette Stingray around the NCM Motorsports Park, where it clearly makes a few very victorious laps.
