Corvette ZR12
In 1989 the Corvette squared off with a new competitor in the shape of the Dodge Viper and its powerful V10 engine. In response to the Viper, Corvette engineers took an early production ZR-1 and added 8 inches to the chassis to make room for a Falconer-built V12 engine. The 600-cubic-inch V12 produced 686 horsepower — a considerable boost from the standard 375 horses in the ZR-1. Unfortunately the V12 Corvette didn’t end up making it to production.
