TIKT, a German tuning organization who specialise in Corvette elements and upgrades, have only released details of their particular latest project. Oddly, despite being named the Corvette C6 ZR1 Tripple X, your car isn’t based on a Corvette ZR1, it’s actually based on an ex-works Corvette Z06. TIKT’s engineers started by ripping apart the engine and also replacing a number of components using even higher-spec alternatives. The 7.0 litre V8 now has modified cylinder heads, new camshafts, strengthened valve springs, modified compressor ratios, a more substantial throttle valve, a completely new exhaust technique and a re-calibrated ECU. As a way to make sure the engine doesn’t self destruct under the strain associated with developing 758 horsepower and 671 lb-ft of torque, TIKT possess made significant upgrades to the cooling system, and it right now pushes around four times since much coolant through the powerplant as before.
In addition to the hefty power upgrades, TIKT have furthermore toyed with the suspension and managed to reduce the vehicle’s ride height simply by 50 mm – though a combination of brand-new wheel mounts and racing shocks. Brand-new wheels, in the form of Zerra Ultralight Evo Only two alloys, help reduce the unsprung mass. While TIKT have primarily concentrated on the car’s engineering and efficiency, they’ve haven’t left the exterior completely investment. A new front bumper, with significantly larger openings, helps retain the engine cool as well as well fed. While elements like the lip spoiler, lower sideskirts and massive carbon-fiber rear wing provide more downforce. On the inside, an Alcantara wrapped flat-bottomed race steering wheel is nicely complimented by simply a pair of carbon-fiber shelled leather-trimmed bucket seats.
