TIKT Triple X Corvette C6 ZR1

TIKT, a German tuning firm has added a new tag line to the Corvette C6 ZR1 the “Triple X”. This tag line exemplifies the greatly enhanced performance the new Corvette C6 ZR1 has to offer.

TIKT engineers were able to squeeze out more power from the 639-hp engine of the Corvette C6 ZR1. Modifications were done on the cylinder heads, camshafts, valve springs, throttle valve, engine controls, and exhaust system. The result is an enormous increase in power from 639 hp to 758 hp with maximum torque from 810 Nm to 910 Nm.

To cope up with the great increase in power, numerous special modifications were made to the cooling system of the ZR1, as a result it now provides four times as much cooling fluid through the engine of this super sports car. In addition to this, a new front skirt helps manage the air flow as well as reducing front lift and improving aerodynamics.

TIKT engineers leave the leaf springs on the rear axle the same instead they installed new wheel mounts made that lowered the car around 30 mm to the ground without any suspension. But together with a new suspension set-up – comprising new race shocks – the sports car can be lowered by approximately 50 mm closer to the road, on which the powerful engine can now convert its performance into propulsion better than before.

To further improve its performance on the road, TIKT installed the ZR1 with very light Zerra Ultralight Evo 2 wheels that reduce the overall unsprung mass for better road grip. These wheels are then accompanied by extremely stable brakes mounted behind the ultra-light allow wheel rims for safety.
