The first SuperLite SLC coupe we wrote about was a lime green machine powered by a supercharged LS9 engine mated to a Porsche transmission. This SLC coupe, though, is still boosted, but this time using two massive turbochargers bolted on to a GM LS motor. Fed only 7 pounds of boost, the build-it-yourself supercar was able to record a trap speed of over 178 miles per hour at WannaGoFast’s Georgia 1/2 Mile Shootout and thanks to 1320 Video, we get to see it in action.
Weighing less than 2,200 pounds, this rear-engine machine is — needless to say — fast. Heck, it could probably fly, or at least hit 200 miles per hour at some point in the near future. Our favorite part, though, is how affordable it is. The kit car can be had for around $40,000 plus the cost of your preferred drivetrain.
And we’ll be first to admit that we have dreams about piloting this racecraft, partly because it sounds so terrifyingly awesome. We mean that both figuratively and literally — this thing really does sound quite nasty. The turbo spool plus the throaty rumble is the best of both worlds.
Go ahead and click play to see this beast tear down the strip, and take on other LS-powered beasts, including Corvettes and other impressive machines.
