Ken Lingenfelter had a solid presence at SEMA. At his home base, he featured three Corvettes and a lot of product. In various satellite locations, a couple more cars were co-located on Lingenfelter partner booths. Each of these cars is a rolling demonstration of the Lingenfelter product as well as the contributions of the partners.

The first car is the Lingenfelter-Superformance C3 Grand Sport replica. The power train is a Lingenfelter LS3 with 11.5:1 compression, ported LS3 cylinder heads, roller camshaft and valve train components, with a wet sump as required by most vintage race groups for this era.

2016 Lingenfelter supercharged Z06 Chevrolet Corvette…

The 2016 Lingenfelter supercharged Z06 convertible is a more recent addition to the line-up. It is yet another step-up in terms of performance and comfort. This car generates 800 HP and 800 lb-ft of torque. The 8-speed paddle-shifted automatic transmission carries this prodigious power rating quite nicely. The performance aspects are enhanced with the Z07 track package and a transparent rear air dam with adjustable wickerbill. Finally, stopping power is by Big Brembo brakes with custom Lingenfelter graphics. This car is designed as a Signature Edition and is listed as serial # 001. The car itself is part of a charity fund-raising project and will be given away with proceeds going to the New Beginnings Children’s Homes, which provides long-term residential care to foster children who have seen some of life’s difficult issues.
