In the automotive performance aftermarket world, there are few names as well-known as Lingenfelter – both the man and the company. Founded nearly 50 years ago, Ken Lingenfelter has built a reputation of creating high-quality, high-performance versions of numerous General Motors vehicles. And while the aftermarket tuner has cut its teeth modifying all sorts of GM vehicles, the company also has an expansive collection of cars that vary wildly. For the last few years, Lingenfelter has, at times, opened the collection to the public, and there’ll be an open house open to the public later this month on Saturday, April 27th.
The 2019 Lingenfelter spring open house will allow the public to see Ken Lingenfelter’s collection, which consists of over 200 vehicles including iconic hypercars such as the Lamborghini Reventon, Ferrari LaFerrari, and Bugatti Veyron. There will also be a plethora of GM vehicles, such as the 1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser Wagon that packs a Lingenfelter-modified LS3 V8 paired with a Tremec 6060 six-speed transmission making 640 horsepower, along with all kinds of Chevrolet Corvettes and Camaros on display.
Opportunities to see so many amazing cars in one place happen on a semi-regular basis, and are a great way to see some fantastic vehicles in a premier collection, while donating to a great cause. Guests can make a cash donation of any amount to the American Cancer Society at the door, and the organization will receive 100 percent of the proceeds. We can think of few better ways to spend a likely brisk, possibly wet, April Saturday in Michigan.
The Lingenfelter Open House is located at 7819 Lochlin Drive, Brighton, Michigan 48116. The event will begin at 10 a.m and conclude at 5 p.m. Ken Lingenfelter will be on hand for poster signings, from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m., and from 3:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. The start-up of the Ferrari Enzo will take place at 3:15 p.m.
