There are cars that hold their ground, there are cars that turn heads, and then, there are cars that rule the roads. Roaring amongst the last of the mentioned category is a certain beast, lovingly nurtured and passionately upgraded by Lingenfelter performance. Today, we’re setting our crosshairs on a car that is as much about performance as it is about style – a modern testament to the undeniable legacy of the American muscle car scene.
This isn’t just a modified Corvette. This beast has been to the mechanical gym, flexed its muscles, and come out as a pumped-up version of itself. A Lingenfelter supercharged Chevy Corvette C6 is akin to Hercules after his labors – a league apart from the rest, a true spectacle of power, and a delight to the senses of any gearhead worth their salt. To say that this beauty has “a few” upgrades would be an understatement that undermines the intense mechanical alchemy this ride has undergone.
Jason Martinez, a passionate car enthusiast from San Diego and proud owner of a stunning Corvette, has a history of possessing remarkable machines. His repertoire includes both a 2017 Ford GT350 and a 2016 Porsche GT4, which he has already checked off his bucket list.
When the time came to hunt for his next adrenaline-pumping vehicle, he set his sights on this fully loaded, Lingenfelter-supercharged Corvette C6. Featuring a ZR6X wide body and a multitude of other top-tier enhancements, this car was already equipped with everything a Corvette aficionado could dream of. With a mere 6,000 miles on the odometer, all that remained for Jason was to add a touch of his unique flair to truly make the car his own.
About the Model
The Chevy Corvette C6 is a name that needs no introduction amongst modern muscle car fans. It is a living, roaring emblem of American automotive prowess, a testament to the untamed power that can be harnessed within a hunk of metal. What sets the Corvette apart is its lethal blend of raw power, scintillating aesthetics, and a deep-seated legacy that dates back to the 1950s.
This sixth-generation Corvette model, the C6, is a blend of sleek design and nerve-racking performance. It carries forward the iconic design language of its predecessors while adding a touch of modernity to stay relevant and impactful. The C6 brings performance that would have the best of Europe double-checking their rear-view mirrors, all while maintaining the quintessential muscle car presence that makes it an unmistakable figure on the road.
But what happens when you take this already fantastic beast and decide to make it better? You get the Lingenfelter Supercharged 2005 Chevy Corvette C6. It’s like taking a thoroughbred champion and infusing it with the strength of a locomotive. What you get is a mechanical beast that screams power with every rev and every inch of its bodywork.

Stepping into performance, the heart of this Chevy is a 6.0-liter LS2 V8, amplified with an Edelbrock E-Force TVS 2300 Supercharger. A performance monster, this package gives the Vette a whopping 665 horses under the hood. This isn’t just an upgrade; it’s an evolution, an ascension to an entirely new level of power. Air to water intercooler, ported LS2 cylinder heads, Comp Cams GT9 camshaft, high-flow fuel injectors, and a high-flow air intake all combine to make this beast breathe fire.

PFADT Stage 3 Suspension
On the suspension front, the ride sports a PFADT Stage 3 package, featuring adjustable coilovers, front and rear sway bars, and a camber kit. This setup ensures the C6 remains glued to the road even when taking on the sharpest corners. This is power, yes, but power under perfect control.
AL13 Forged Wheels
The Corvette rolls on staggered AL13 R50 20-inch forged wheels, shod with Michelin rubber. These aren’t just about looks. They serve a real purpose – stability at high speeds, grip in corners, and that extra bit of confidence when you have your foot down on the pedal.
Stepping to the exterior, the Corvette proudly flaunts a Supervettes ZR6X body kit. This isn’t a body kit; it’s a statement. The body-colored wide front fenders, ZR1 front splitter, vented hood, wide rear quarter panels, and a rear bumper with quad exhaust all scream performance. And as a perfect cherry on top, the Lingenfelter ZR6X badging is there to remind you this isn’t an everyday Vette.
Inside, the Corvette ensures you ride in style and comfort. It boasts an ebony leather interior, carbon-fiber bezels, a Pioneer amplifier, and a touchscreen navigation stereo. The cabin encapsulates you in a cocoon of comfort while you hold the reins of the incredible power lurking beneath the hood.
