Italian tuner adds a compressor to the Z06's LS7 7.0 liter V8 engine and dials power up to 677 PS (498 kW) and 823 Nm of torque.
The Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris is at it again. This time they're taking on the Corvette Z06.
Romeo Ferraris takes the American import and drops its own compressor onto the LS7 7.0 liter V8 engine. The Vortech kit used includes a centrifugal compressor, an air-to-air aluminum intercooler and high-flow injectors. Total output goes from the standard Z06's 512 PS (377 kW) and 637 Nm of torque to 677 PS (498 kW) and 823 Nm.
Those new power ratings also come as a benefit of a new sport exhaust system and the Z06-RF is held in check by larger performance disk-brakes featuring 380 mm, 6-piston calipers for the front and 345 mm, 4-piston calipers at the back.
Front and rear wheels also differ in dimensions, with Romeo Ferraris fitting this Z06-RF with 19-inch rims at the front and 20-inch at the back.
Performance numbers include a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 3.3 seconds and if you keep going you'll reach 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 10 seconds. Top speed is 340 km/h (211 mph).
Romeo Ferraris also provides a new interior finish to add a European touch to this American muscle car. That includes an in-house "Commando" sport steering wheel by Romeo Ferraris, Recaro Sportster seats and leather touches to replace outgoing plastic moldings.
