Late Model Racecraft's latest twin-turbo C7 Corvette run came in at 9.950 seconds at 144.46 mph. A large improvement over the 10.29 at 139 mph previously recorded a few weeks before the record-breaking run.

This 2000-horsepower GT-R is being built for one purpose: speed. Our contact over with T1 has passed on some details as the build comes closer to completion.
Bought by Brian’s father in the mid-1980s, the C2 Corvette has lived quite the exciting life. Modifying cars in the 1960s and 70s was popular amongst sports car aficionados—and this C2 was not spared from such fate. Just after it was ordered in 1965 it was modified for autocross racing. To accomplish this, the previous owner cut and widened the fiberglass fenders for larger 315-section tires.
Quick question: Let’s say you could take a time machine back to the late 1980s and put down a sizable deposit on Jaguar’s V-12-powered, all-wheel-drive XJ220 supercar concept. Would it piss you off if, a few years later, Jaguar delivered a turbo V-6-powered, rear-wheel-drive production car?
