2016 SEMA – LINGENFELTER DISPLAY

LINGENFELTER (MAIN) DISPLAY

Text and Photos By: Wayne Ellwood

Ken Lingenfelter had a solid presence at SEMA. At his home base, he featured three Corvettes and a lot of product. In various satellite locations, a couple more cars were co-located on Lingenfelter partner booths. Each of these cars is a rolling demonstration of the Lingenfelter product as well as the contributions of the partners.

The first car is the Lingenfelter-Superformance C3 Grand Sport replica. The power train is a Lingenfelter LS3 with 11.5:1 compression, ported LS3 cylinder heads, roller cam shaft and valve train components, with a wet sump as required by most vintage race groups for this era.

The 2014 C7 Corvette features the Lingenfelter engine package using the Edelbrock TV82300 e-Force supercharger. The output is listed at 624 HP and 600 lb-ft of torque. The engine benefits from American Racing Headers and a Corsa cat-back exhaust. The car also has a Lingenfelter trim package, Forgeline wheels, Continental tires and an ACS composite extractor in the carbon fiber hood.

The 2016 Lingenfelter supercharged Z06 convertible is a more recent addition to the line-up. It is yet another step-up in terms of performance and comfort. This car generates 800 HP and 800 lb-ft of torque. The 8-speed paddle shifted automatic transmission carries this prodigious power rating quite nicely. The performance aspects are enhanced with the Z07 track package and a transparent rear air dam with adjustable wickerbill. Finally, stopping power is by Big Brembo brakes with custom Lingenfelter graphics. This car is designed as a Signature Edition and is listed as serial # 001. The car itself is part of a charity fund-raising project and will be given away with proceeds going to the New Beginnings Children’s Homes, which provides long-term residential care to foster children who have seen some of life’s difficult issues.
