Martini race spec Corvette…
Not the usual kind of car that we are used to seeing down at ADE Tuning. And to be honest we weren’t entirely sure that it would even get on the rolling road as we had to jack it up to get it in the workshop!
With most of the Corvette being made of fibreglass to keep the weight down, it wasn’t the easiest of vehicles to push. But with the owners permission we got it off the trailer and on to the rolling road by pushing on the rear spoiler and roll-cage. With the bonnet removed from the car we where able to see that mighty engine 😍
The Corvette was running using the aftermarket ecu MoTec. We have vast experience in this aftermarket ecu and it worked great with the car.
With the car strapped down extremely well to the rolling road we began the mapping process. We ran the car whilst we adjust and altered the information on the ecu. It sounded amazing but extremely loud so ear defenders where handed out.
Once we were happy with how the fuelling etc. was with the MoTec on the Corvette we did one last power run to find what power she was pulling.
Just shy of 680bhp 🙂
We couldn’t obviously test drive the beast of a Corvette on the road, so we couldn’t comment on how it performed handling wise. BUT it will be out racing next year. So keep a look out for the Martini Corvette that ADE Tuning mapped on a race track near you!
