Magnuson says this is a prototype vehicle, but reflects what production will see once available. What has Magnuson done to the 2015 C7 Corvette Stingray, you ask? They’ve simply slapped their $8,000 supercharger kit on. That’s it.
The question Matt Farah, of The Smoking Tire, has is also a simple one: is it better than a stock C7 Stingray? It seems like that is a yes.
Again, the car is a completely stock C7 Stingray with the Z51 package. The addition of the supercharger increases the horsepower and torque ratings both by a solid 100, however. And Farah thinks it’s a perfect happy medium between the Stingray and Z06. Granted, he wasn’t a huge fan of the eight-speed automatic but, when Magnuson hands you the keys to a car, beggars can’t be choosers.
The 2015 Magnuson Stingray hits the California canyon roads for what seems to be a near sublime experience. Perfect weather, a great car and even better roads. What more do you want? Check out the video down below.
