In essence, it is a Chevrolet Corvette of the year 2020 that Fereday uses on a daily basis, but hides a whopping 1,500 hp under the hood. Why? Because he really is a test mule.
Although this is a sports car that is being driven regularly, the truth is that we are talking about a unit in which Late Model Racecraft is checking the performance of his mod kit for the C8 generation of this Chevy.

For this reason, his owner claims to be proud, since he has mentioned that this is the most complicated project they have worked on so far.
Of course, now a new phase will have to start: the sale of the kit. Once proven, Late Model Racecraft will start selling these Corvette mod packages and they will do so with several power options to choose from. will be offered from versions of 700 hp to 1,500 hp. And you, which one do you want?
