Unveiling the World’s First Supercharged E-Ray: A Game-Changer

In a groundbreaking collaboration, Paragon Performance and Lingenfelter Performance Engineering have unveiled the world’s first supercharged E-Ray, setting a new standard in hybrid sports car performance. This pioneering project blends innovative engineering with exceptional client service, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in automotive customization.

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering unveils the world's first supercharged Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray, boasting 734 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque. Featuring Lingenfelter pistons, upgraded fuel injection, and a heavy-duty clutch, this powerhouse can complete a quarter-mile in 9.7 seconds and even lift its front wheels in a sprint. Priced at $35,000, including installation, the conversion maintains the car’s original AWD hybrid functionality.

Paragon Performance: Pioneering the Supercharged E-Ray

The journey began with a simple inquiry from Stephen, a devoted client interested in enhancing his Corvette. This conversation quickly evolved into a comprehensive project, demonstrating Paragon’s dedication to transforming client visions into reality. They meticulously prepared by flying to Kansas City to retrieve the E-Ray and conducting a detailed 500-mile road trip for baseline dyno testing, setting the stage for the modifications ahead.

Lingenfelter’s Technical Mastery Unleashes the E-Ray

With the groundwork laid by Paragon, Lingenfelter took over to tackle the technical challenges. They expertly integrated a MAGNUSON Supercharger with the E-Ray’s advanced electric drive system, boosting its output to an impressive 734 HP and 792 TQ. The modifications included high-performance pistons, valve springs, and a custom heat exchanger system, essential for supporting the increased power.

Key Enhancements Include:

  • Factory ECM calibration using Lingenfelter’s “C-Cal” Process
  • High-efficiency Eaton TVS R Supercharger
  • Advanced cooling systems to maintain optimal engine performance
Efficiency in Engineering: The team at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) demonstrates their innovative approach with a proprietary engine/transmission cradle, designed specifically for the C8 Corvette. This custom tool ensures a seamless and smooth removal of the vehicle’s drivetrain, optimizing the modification process.

Initially, Lingenfelter extracted the engine to replace the standard pistons with high-performance forged Lingenfelter by MAHLE C8 Corvette drop-in pistons and upgraded the vehicle with a new Lingenfelter C8 valve spring and pushrod set. Once the engine was reinstalled, Lingenfelter completed the enhancement by adding the Magnuson TVS2650 Stage 1 C8 Supercharger Package
