Corvette as autobahn police car

German Ministry of Transport and tuning company TIKT Performance have taken a standard Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (the same as for Hennessey Z700)model and made it into a true road monster. It has the acceleration and reliability of a German car, handling that of a Japanese one and the looks and blood of a true American muscle car.

This one of a kind Corvette is not the first product of the social campaign TUNE IT! SAFE! (insisting on a safe car tuning). It was just unveiled at the Essen car tuning exhibition; its makers likewise their predecessors boldly expresses that car should be tuned only in a professional way with high quality components and materials, ensuring the best results and utmost safety.

TIKT Performance detailed Corvette from the standard model version differs, first of all, by its appearance: it has a custom made car body panel set, including front and rear bumpers, winded fenders, moldings, 20-inch wheels and, of course, a traditional police car paintjob in flashing light colors. Inside you can find a mounted police communication system.

On the technical side there have not been many changes. Policeman will have to rely on a standard 6.2 liter V8 engine with 466 horsepower, but it’s more than enough to catch up with any law-braking driver. The vehicle can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds thanks to its special seven speed manual transmission.

It may be noted that the seventh generation Corvette Stingray was presented already in 2013. Few weeks later, general public was introduced to its hot modification Z06 as well as C7 R that is intended for maximum adrenaline in race tracks.
