Nitrous-Huffing 2014 Corvette Stingrays Lay Down 10-second Passes

With an aftermarket set of cylinder heads, camshaft and nitrous, these Vettes from Late Model Racecraft are redefining the era of street cars

It’s nearly every car guy’s dream: Daily drive their race car. These days, you can and the 2014 Corvette Stingray is a shining example of just that. What was once only left for only a select few or whoever felt it necessary to volunteer for a harsh ride, deafening engine drone and paltry fuel mileage is now anything but history.

Don’t get it twisted though, we can’t argue with a cackling big-block Chevelle sporting a set of drag radials either. And you’ll find us at the front of that line for sure. However, during these times, access to vehicles with superb fuel mileage that also tattoo the ground with thick black stripes is nothing out of the norm. Now though, you can achieve exactly that in one of our favorite late-model superheros…the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Though, a pair of nitrous-huffing, 2014 Corvette Stingrays running down the quarter mile and dipping well into 10-sec territory at over 130 miles per hour is another story altogether. Considering these vehicles are still completely street-legal and probably clip close to 25mpg, it’s quite likely the best vehicle to come out of Detroit in the last decade.

Of course, these aren’t factory-outfitted Vettes. Late Model Racecraft (LMR), a name synonymous with late-model performance in the domestic high performance market, has done their homework. This time around, they’ve made sure to give these Vettes a lesson in breathing with cylinder head and camshaft packages and in the case of these dueling Vettes, some nitrous, too. Although the exact details on those modifications aren’t known, it’s obvious their hard work is paying off - every 10 seconds.

We start off with the black C7 Stingray, which squeezes out a bottom 10-second run to 133.28 miles per hour. Not too shabby considering, at least from the video, what we noticed could be a missed shift. In our offices, we've analyzed this and have determined, if it were a "missed shift," it could have cost this run .07 seconds or more; making us certain we're watching what could be a high, 9-second C7 Stingray. Backing up the black C7's efforts, the red Stingray lays down an equally impressive 10.48 at nearly an identical 133.29 miles per hour.

At this point what more can we say? We’ll stop the talking and just let the video do most of it for us. Make sure to sit back, relax and try to keep yourself from drooling. Just a warning, these Vettes have a nightmarish tone. Best to hide your kids from these monsters!

Im sorry to hear that. Does it have spray painted black rims, a fart tube exhaust and "type R" seat covers with little dragons on them too?

I know of a fox body mustang with a 2 liter mitsubishi 4 banger with a turbo that runs faster. A lot cheaper to.
