How zee Germans do American sports cars.
The new C7-generation Chevrolet Corvette has transformed into a bargain super car that’s highly-regarded around the globe for its performance. Even in Germany, where BMW, Mercedes-AMG, Porsche, and others rule, the Corvette is making an impact. The German tuners at BBM Motorsport are one of the latest European companies to take on the new Corvette, and their Z06 is pretty impressive.
The supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine sitting beneath the hood of the Corvette Z06 is more than happy to take advantage of a few modifications. The chip tuning software specialists at BBM Motorsport installed a new software upgrade and air intake as well as a Capristo exhaust system with CES-control and optional H-pipe to replace the main catalytic converter for reduced backpressure. The result is an impressive 690 horsepower and 672 lb-ft. of torque. While that’s not the same output as other American-based tuners have achieved, it’s not doubt impressive.
Transferring that power to the asphalt are new OZ Racing Ultraleggera wheels in either 19- or 20-inch diameters. Depending on the size of the wheels, customers can re-use the factory tires.
Visually, the BBM Motorsport team relies on the addition of a new front spoiler in carbon flash metallic or a visible carbon fiber finish to generate some extra downforce. The featured vehicle is also wrapped in a fully-custom vinyl design from SL Premium. Customers can also create their own vinyl design for their American sports car as well.
All of the featured upgrades on the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 are currently available from BBM Motorsport as individual accessories or a complete package.
