WR TV: Lingenfelter C6 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible Walkaround and Test Drive

Cars, Reviews I By Winding Road Staff I September 22, 2014
Today we’re taking a look at a 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible which has been warmed over by the horsepower fanatics at Lingenfelter. While the standard C6 Grand Sport Corvette is certainly no slouch, with its 6.2-liter naturally aspirated LS3 V8 which outputs a respectable 430hp, this drop top now sports over 600 horsepower by way of a HeartBeat supercharger system, which includes ECU modifications, an Eaton "TVS" 2300 rotating group, an internal intercooler system and bypass valve, twin dual-pass charge-air-coolers, a coolant circulation pump and a heat exchanger.
