At the MOBIL-1 display, a red-hot C7 previously seen here in 2015 was again on display. This one is built by Retro Designs: Speed and Custom. Wheels were “Fifteen52” by Apex RSR and tires were Michelin Super Sport tires in 295/30ZR/19 and 345/30ZR/19. Power upgrades included a custom fabricated airbox and very large turbocharger provided by East Coast Supercharging. With this little bit of technology, the LT1 engine is stated to produce 700 HP and 650 lb-ft. The aero body work was by Stance Craft, and the rear diffuser was made by APR Performance. The car has a cage installed inside a mostly stock interior.
