Welcome to a story that is sure to inspire hatred across the minds (and comment section) of Corvette lovers.
DPC Cars has stumbled upon one standard issue C3 Corvette, except it’s not running its original engine. It also hasn’t been swapped to modern times with a General Motors crate engine. No, this C3 Corvette is employing a Toyota 2JZ engine.
The 2JZ, most commonly associated with the Toyota Supra, has been tweaked, tuned and blown to post 1,100 wheel horsepower in this C3 Corvette. Hardly numbers to scoff at from an engine that was plucked from a Lexus SC300. But, it’s sure to upset quite a few with the wrong tone coming from under the hood and exhaust pipes.
But, the performance is backed up through quarter-mile times, too.
The 2JZ C3 Corvette has managed to clock an 8.9-second quarter mile run at 153 mph.
What say you? Genius, or blasphemy? Go ahead and talk do us down below after watching the video above.
