2012 TIKT Corvette C6 ZR1 Tripple X
TIKT Corvette C6 ZR1 Tripple X is a true master piece! With its 648 PS (476 kW) and 810 Nm (598 lb-ft) it goes directly to the class of super sportscars! More importantly it also makes an excellent impression! The high-tech and precision company called TIKT is the reason for this astonishing tuning! In details, first the performance was improved by using a modified cylinder heads, camshafts, strengthened valve springs, modified compressor ratios, a larger throttle valve and a completely modified exhaust. Then after a fine tuning of the engine‘s controls, there was achieved a peak of 769 PS (585 kW) and a top torque of 970 Nm (716 lb-ft) was printed out at the performance test station. Next, there was performed a second step, at which the PS and Torque were stabilized by regrinding and finely adjusting the valve seats. Additional upgrades were made to the cooling system of Z06 too. Additionally the cooler was encapsulated and mounted in combination with a new front skirt. Because of the targeted air flow to the side, now a real venture effect is created! This makes it a great advantage for the Corvette‘s aerodynamics. In order not to hamper the cinematics of the suspension and at the same time to increase the performance on the tarmac, the leaf springs on the rear axle were retained and new wheel mounts were made. The result is that the vehicle is 30 millimeters closer to the ground without any lowering. Together with a new suspension set-up (including new race shocks) this tuned C6 was brought approximately 50 millimeters closer to the road. In addition there was added also an improved grip with very light Zerra Ultralight Evo 2 wheels. They once more reduce the overall mass. And to keep the performance perfect, there were also mounted behind the ultra–light allow wheel rims stable brakes of suitable size. At last but not least, the aerodynamic "assistants" in the shape of a rear spoiler were also constructed of equally weight saving carbon. And all these modifications and improvements have the Corvette into a Triple X ZR1 the ultimate super sportscar!
