In your opinion, how much horsepower would reach the wheels of this Twin Turbo 2020 Corvette during this dyno testing session?
But before talking about the amount of power obtained by the Corvette C8 that was fitted with a pair of turbochargers, we would like to remind you of The Fastest Corvette C8 In The World, which was modified by Hennessy Performance, rising the engine horsepower to 650hp.
Extreme Turbo Systems’ official account on Facebook has posted a video showing the result of a Dyno test of an all-new Chevrolet Corvette C8 after it was supplied with a pair of turbochargers made by the company.
Watch the video:
According to the video, the amount of horsepower that reached the wheels of the Twin Turbo 2020 Corvette in this dyno test was 736 hp and 907 Nm of torque. These are big numbers, even for this sports car that is equipped with a Twin-turbocharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, methanol injection system, modified exhaust system, and intake. The ECU was also modified in this vehicle.
As a reminder, the all-new 2020 Corvette C8 is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.2 Liter V8 engine, generating 490 hp and 630 Newton meters of torque, and when ordering this American sports car with the Z51 package numbers reach 495 hp and 637 Nm.
As for the modified Corvette, the wheel horsepower is 736 hp, which means that the engine generates more power, but due to drivetrain power loss, only this amount is transferred from the beating heart to the wheels.
Our ArabGT team does not have any official information regarding the cost of these mechanical modifications, but we know that the base price of the 2020 Corvette starts from 59,995 USD, which is equivalent to 224,981 SAR.
