For more than 30 years, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) has created a matchless heritage of bringing astounding new capabilities to the world’s most sought-after sports cars, especially the Chevrolet Corvette.  Our friends at LPE are very pleased to announce their 2009 C6 Corvette ZR1 recently made four 9 second passes down the Maryland International Raceway quarter mile, hitting a best of 9.813 quarter-mile at 145.74 mph at the Budds Creek, Maryland facility. 

Building on a rich history of finely engineered vehicle packages, Lingenfelter has refined the high-performance Corvette ZR1 to deliver maximum horsepower and torque utilizing the stock factory engine.  The Lingenfelter ZR1 has been upgraded with the company’s LS9 designed components to provide 739 rear-wheel horsepower and 720 rear-wheel torque.  

The Vette ran a solid 6.390 elapsed time at 114.70 miles per hour to the 1/8 mile, all of the 9 second quarter-mile passes were run with stock exhaust manifolds and a factory catback exhaust with a “Mild-to-Wild” switch. 

“The track is the ultimate proving grounds to showcase Lingenfelter’s years of engineering expertise and to test the performance capabilities of our ZR1,” said Ken Lingenfelter, owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.  “We are excited to continue developing product that pushes this sports car to the limit.”
