Last week, we got an email from one of our avid readers who was going to be in the DFW area for some service work on his C6. There have been Corvettes featured on this site before, but we were anxious to check out this one for a few reasons. One is that I’m new here to txGarage and can’t wait to get my first post under my belt, but most of all, I was excited because this was no ordinary C6 Corvette. This was a supercharged Lingenfelter Corvette.
Our friend, and fan, of txGarage lives out by Austin, but drives all the way up to Dallas to visit the pros at Twenty-First Century Muscle Cars. This shop was founded by the daughter of John Lingenfelter, founder of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
The owner of this C6 you see here today was not happy with the stock 405 horsepower produced by the American sports car. After deliberating with friends, he decided on the Lingenfelter package offered by Twenty-First Century Muscle Cars. The package included a supercharger pushing 630 hp and 580 lbs-ft of torque, along with a new hood to fit over the supercharger, and upgraded suspension and brake components.
Riding in the car, you get the feeling that you will be hard-pressed to find a road that will allow you to unleash the fury that lies beneath the hood. A gentle tap of the accelerator sends you hurling toward the traffic in front of you. It is always comforting to know that you’re in a car that could basically eat anything you may encounter.
