The C8 Corvette's 495-hp 6.2-liter V-8 is more than enough. It makes all the right noises, and with a zero-to-60-mph time of 2.8 seconds, it's quick as hell. For some of the more power crazed, though, that just won't cut it.
Since the more powerful Z06 model hasn't yet been revealed, the aftermarket is racing to add power to the C8. We've seen turbocharged setups for the mid-engine Vette, but ProCharger has just revealed the first supercharger option we've seen for the C8.
The Kansas City supercharger company teased a "bolt-on supercharger system" for the C8 Corvette in a video released in November. Details are limited, but according to the clip's description, the supercharger kit with intercooler pushes the C8 from 495 hp to over 700 hp on pump gas. The company says the blower kit "is just around the corner."
In a video posted this week, ProCharger showed what acceleration with its supercharged C8s looks like on a dyno. Yes, it's fast and loud as hell.
ProCharger says its kit builds 8 to 9 psi of boost and uses an air-to-water intercooler system. Also, it looks pretty damn clean in the C8's engine bay.
No word yet on pricing or availability, but we'll update this story once we know more.
