Lingenfelter Introduces Their Continental C8 Chevrolet Corvette

Lingenfelter and their tire sponsor, Continental, have built some incredible Corvettes in the past. This one should be quite special.


  • Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has a long history with the Corvette.

  • This yellow and black C8 was built for the company’s show rig and will tour car shows in the future.

  • Only the top-power cars usually get the Continental livery.


Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has transformed many a GM product in its many decades as a specialized tuner. The Chevrolet Corvette is without a doubt one of their project cars and Ken Lingenfelter himself has posted pictures of a Continental-livered C8 that has everyone wondering what it’s got under the hood.

There’s little information available on this sharply dressed C8 Corvette at the moment. Carbuzz.com reports that Lingenfelter posted an image of a Magnuson 2650 supercharger captioned “something is going to making some power here pretty soon,” in reference to a new C8 Corvette. Beyond this, little is known other than in the past, the Brighton, Michigan based tuner has reserved the Continental livery for its craziest builds.

If this C8 is in fact a super-powered Corvette, Lingenfelter may have managed to crack the C8’s notoriously impossible-to-crack ECU’s code which would enable them to take full advantage of the performance add-ons. It is also possible that they’ve replaced the standard unit with a stand-alone management system to make it work.

For over a year now, the C8 Chevrolet Corvette has been the star of car shows and tuning houses and few are more anticipated than Lingenfelter’s. We’ll have to wait a little longer to see what they’ve done. And get specs.
