The industrial machining firm has taken a ZR1 and improved power output to (758 hp) (769 PS / 566 kW) and 910 Nm (671lb-ft) of torque.
The Corvette ZR1 is not a vehicle to be trifled with. Producing 638 hp (476 kW / 647 PS) and 604 ft-lbf (819 Nm) of torque, even the European aristocracies won't point their noses upwards at it. In fact, it's just the opposite. Throughout Europe you will find factions from all walks of life devoted to anything about Corvette or American muscle for that matter.
Enter German tuning firm TIKT. The industrial machining firm has taken a ZR1 dubbed Tripple X and improved power output to (758 hp) (769 PS / 566 kW) and 910 Nm (671lb-ft) of torque. This was done by using modified cylinder heads, camshafts, strengthened valve springs, modified superhcharger ratios, a larger throttle valve and a completely modified exhaust.
But the numbers were inconsistent. In a second step, TIKT regrinded and finely adjusting the valve seats and horsepower and torque finally stabilized. Adjustments were also made to the cooling system allowing up to four times as much coolant to be pushed through the engine.
Due to the additional horsepower, TIKT wanted to upgrade the suspension as well. They retained the standard leaf springs on the rear axle but replaced the wheel mounts allowing a 30 mm drop. On the front suspension, race shocks were installed for a lowering of 50 mm. Lightweight Zerra Ultralight Evo 2 wheels reduced unsprung mass.
Aerodynamically, TIKT installed a restyled front fascia to allow proper cooling of the encapsulated radiator while creating more downforce. New side skirts were also installed in addition to a carbon fiber fixed rear wing.
