You know, when GM decides to build a Mid Engine Corvette the outcome, even though amazing, turns out to be pretty straight-forward classic. RWD, front-mounted big engine – that’s the random combination. However, what you’re about to see in action in the video below is a custom build and it is anything but ordinary. The ride is inspired by the mid-engine Ford GT and the one that got the idea was the vehicle designer Mark Harlan.
It’s been described as “a stunning reinvention or vision of the future,” has earned the coveted GM Design Award, and has been dynoed at an incredible 1,067 horsepower and 915 lb-ft of torque. Compare that to the 650/650 output of the current 2015 Corvette Z06, and you get an idea of the amazing performance of this car that will explode from 0 to 60 in less than three seconds.
