The Corvette Spa not only looks after our Vettes but our Viper too - and the picture above is of the time we lent our Viper to our good friend Brian. Visiting us and wanting to drive some laps at nearby High Plains Raceway (HPR) Brian who normally tracks a C6 Vette tuned by A&A Corvette Performance didn’t hesitate to accept an alternative vehicle. So much so that there’s always a possibility that a Viper may appear in his garage too and occupy a space alongside his Vette.
Very soon, the landscape is going to change dramatically. First up there’s the fifth generation of Viper about to hit dealer’s showrooms and then just before January’s Detroit Auto Show, GM will take the wraps of the seventh generation Vette. The stakes are going to be raised significantly and while we are hearing more about the base powerplant of the Vette – a new, revised 6.2 V8 (and not the rumored 5.5 V8) – it will not be long before the specs of the track-ready special, the possible replacement of the ZR1 / Z06, you just have to believe it will match the 640hp on tap now from the new Viper.
Owners of C6 Vettes will not be left out – they have options. And at the Spa readers of these posts will appreciate that a series of Spa treatments have been announced that let our investments in C6 and C5 Vettes continue to play with these new generations of snakes and rays. And for considerably less money!
