Hear a twin-supercharged Corvette blast from the past

This 1,200 horsepower C3 Corvette, as well as the uploaded-in-2006 video quality, are both oldies but goodies. What’s better than one supercharger? TWO superchargers.

According to the easily excited video description, the owner invested over $250,000 into this car. Two Whipple superchargers feeding a 522 Merlin engine with aluminum heads churn out that lofty horsepower figure, while a four-inch custom exhaust sounds astonishingly rad. Richmond six-speed transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and even a 250-mph speedometer round out the mean package. More info on the car comes from an ancient Digital Corvettes thread.

“This car breaks traction at 100mph,” said the video uploader. Sounds perfectly fine by us.
