Romeo Ferraris’ 667 bhp Carbon Fiber Corvette

The Corvette is a beautiful creature which challenges a lot of the machines across the water from the Germans, and Italians and to the Japanese. Now Romeo Ferrari is a tuning company out of Italy who are known to tweak their machines to extremes. It seems they went across the Atlantic to work on their next specimen, the Corvette Z06.

RF has taken the Z06 and fitted a supercharger to the 7.0-liter LS7 V8 resulting with a monstrous 667 bhp and 607 lb-ft of torque. With all the modifications this machine gets to 62 mph in 3.3 blazing seconds and up to 211 mph. Thats assuming you can control this car and get all the power out, and they have fitted the brakes to stop it to a halt. Now they have taken every body piece off the Corvette and crafted every Carbon Fiber piece to make it extremely light and looks extremely mean and scary.

Geiger Corvette Z06

Other then the lime green look of this machine, its a rocket on wheels. With 890 bhp and 694 ft-lbs of torque coming from the Twin Turboed Z06 engine, you don’t know what to expect of this machine. I do like the rear of that car, the hood doesn’t seem too appealing, but what a monster coming from a German firm. Too handle all this power they have upgraded the brakes, installed a carbon fiber drive shaft, upgraded the clutch to handle this amount of power. I’m honestly surprised that a German company would be so interested in American machines, but the Z06 is one interesting car.

Innotech C6 Corvette

I have to say that I never thought a Czech company would be able to improve the look of the Corvette and yet they did. It has a bit of similar look to a 599, and they also have some engine modifications available for C6, Z06, and ZR1. I’m curious to see what these machines are able to do since they do perform in the first place.

Geiger Corvette Z06

This is one of the coolest looking Z06s I have ever seen, and I love the color matte black on this machine, and the orange strip makes it look mean. I’m not sure what they did to the rear of the vehicle but it looks very good. It seems Geiger is a German company that modifies American vehicles, I’m not sure exactly what they do to it but it looks damn good.

Corvette ZR1 Pricing

There is a lot to be said about the Corvette, and now that they are introducing the ZR1 its nothing short of a monster. 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds and pumps out about 638 bhp, I was afraid of the Z06 but this is just on another level. I decided to inquire into the pricing of the machine. It seems there are two packages, the 3ZR and 1ZR, the 3ZR being the more expensive. It is guesstimated that the 3ZR would be at $117’000, the only options available are the color, the rims, and the navigation/sound system. The rest of the car is fully loaded.

I passed by the dealership in Kuwait and this is the information I received.

There is a waiting list of 9 people who are putting money down and it is priced between 31’000 to 37’000 KWD. They aren’t sure yet, but what they do know is that they had an allotment of 8 but it has been reduced to 2 cars, and they pretty much sold.

So I called up Courtesy Chevrolet in California, I know that they are the biggest Corvette Seller on the West Coast. They are receiving an allotment of 10 and they have 7 people on the waiting list. After asking a few questions, he shocked me with a huge mark up, for th 3ZR it is list of a $117’00 and a mark up of $50’00, and you will receive the car by spring of next year, if you want the car this summer then the mark up is $60’000. For a grand total of $177’000 which is roughly 47’790 KWD.

I called up a few other dealership until finding Putnam Chevrolet close to San Francisco and he didn’t mention a mark up on the ZR1. He is expecting the 3ZR to be around $120’000 which is equivalent of 32’400 KWD. They seemed a lot more reasonable then the first one.

I made use of my Skype Phone while making my phone calls, this is a limited production machine and only a few dealerships will be getting it. I called a few that weren’t even getting it, and they sounded depressed when they answered. Whoever is going to be driving this machine will really enjoy it.
