Italian tuner adds a compressor to the Z06's LS7 7.0 liter V8 engine and dials power up to 677 PS (498 kW) and 823 Nm

The Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris is at it again. This time they're taking on the Corvette Z06.

Romeo Ferraris takes the American import and drops its own compressor onto the LS7 7.0 liter V8 engine. The Vortech kit used includes a centrifugal compressor, an air-to-air aluminum intercooler and high-flow injectors. Total output goes from the standard Z06's 512 PS (377 kW) and 637 Nm of torque to 677 PS (498 kW) and 823 Nm.

Those new power ratings also come as a benefit of a new sport exhaust system and the Z06-RF is held in check by larger performance disk-brakes featuring 380 mm, 6-piston calipers for the front and 345 mm, 4-piston calipers at the back.

Front and rear wheels also differ in dimensions, with Romeo Ferraris fitting this Z06-RF with 19-inch rims at the front and 20-inch at the back.

Performance numbers include a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 3.3 seconds and if you keep going you'll reach 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 10 seconds. Top speed is 340 km/h (211 mph).

Romeo Ferraris also provides a new interior finish to add a European touch to this American muscle car. That includes an in-house "Commando" sport steering wheel by Romeo Ferraris, Recaro Sportster seats and leather touches to replace outgoing plastic moldings.

I like the look of the factory supercharged Vette a lot better. Although I do like the non cobalt looking steering wheel. I generally like turbocharging better than supercharging, but Edelbrock's got a very well engineered supercharger kit for the Vettes.

out finishing a corvette in a carbon fiber vynal does not make it a good looking car, just make it look cheap. So what now, corvette trying to be just another loser car to go along with the mustang and see who can come out with the most varities.

Don't ask him to explain because he might try. I've dealt with people like this many a time and he is your typical U.S. car hater. You can see all the classic signs ie; poor spelling, worse grammar, and absolutely no knowledge or facts to back up their statements. Just let him do what he does best, be a hater.

Did Romeo Ferraris design the compressor system? "Romeo Ferraris takes the American import and drops its own compressor onto the LS7 7.0 liter." Last I heard you can order a Vortech kit for a Z06 directly from Vortech and it includes the injectors, the ECU programmer, and everything you need for a bolt in installation. Typical installations can be done in a weekend with an average do it yourself-er with basic hand tools. So basically Romeo is just an interior designer that also happens to have access to a Sumit Racing catalog. I could just have easily followed the latest trend and "murdered out" the car with a matte finish on everything. Have a shop stitch up a custom interior. But I would have gone with a TVS roots style supercharger instead and made a little more hp while putting out a torque curve as tall and flat as a Utah Mesa.

I agree. I don't see much here that is out of reach.
