The guys who give wild HP figures were not alive in the 1970s or they would not make claims like that.
The baddest Corvette of them all was a 1967-1969 L88 427 CI Corvette and it was only rated at 430 HP at 4,000 RPM. . In production trim, the L88 engine had 450-500 HP on racing fuel at 6,000 RPM. Due to insurance and emissions standards, the L88 package was cancelled in 1970
1/4 mile: 124 MPH 11.50 ET
