With the supercharged 6.2 liter V8 engine giving an output of 604 lb-ft torque and 638 horsepower, the Corvette ZR1 is one performance beast. However, TIKT, the German tuning firm believes that improvements could be made on this and in that case they with the Triple X package have introduced a new take on this model. This starts with the eight cylinder powerhouse which has got the cylinder heads upgraded, valve springs, camshafts, compressor ratio and a large strangle valve, a fully upgraded exhaust system, ECU and changes in the cooling system. The tune monitors that the engine gives an output of 671.2 lb-ft torque and 758 HP.

It is then, the TIKT moves to the handling of the Corvette ZR1, which can be improved by making use of the new race shocks, a lower suspension of 50mm, much powerful brakes and new Zerra Ultralight Evo 2 alloy wheels. At last comes the aero package, which includes a front bumper along with side skirts, a splitter and a rear wing which is oversized. All these are made from carbon fiber which is very light. With all these improvements the TIKT tried to give a new look to the upcoming model.
