German tuner Loma-Performance have announced their latest tuning package for the C6 Corvette. Inspired by the United States' Air Force One Boeing 747, Loma have dubbed this vehicle "C6.BlackforceOne." The aircraft theme continues as the C6.blackforceOne is available in Stealth matt black, Eurofighter matt grey and White Storm matt white.
Based on the standard C6, BlackforceOne adds 10cm of width to each side for a menacing stance. This is accomplished with carbon fibre wheel arch extensions and carbon fibre side skirts. Elsewhere, Loma has constructed also in carbon fibre a front lip spoiler and rear diffuser with integrated LED reverse lights. A rear spoiler with a carbon fibre finish can also be added.
With aggressive styling and such a notorious name, substantial power output is expected of the C6. As a result, Loma has put together a bi-turbo engine conversion exclusive to the BlackforceOne. Although shy on the details, the conversion produces 794 PS at the crank translating into 675 PS at the wheels but not without some careful drive-line re-engineering. Loma started with a careful blueprinting of the transmission to handle all that power going to the rear axle. Loma also installed their own carbon fibre sports clutch and carbon fibre drive shafts plus a LOMA Cup Sport Superlight exhaust system.
The sprint to 100km/h takes 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 330km/h (205mph). Although further performance specs were not provided, Loma states that top speed is an overrated status symbol and believes in strong acceleration in all situations as the main goal. The engineering of the C6.BlackforceOne has been adjusted accordingly to meet this guiding principle.
Fitted beneath is a coilover suspension and adjustable stabilisers bars running down to 10 x 19 and 12 x 20-inch OZ Racing Ultraleggera HLT alloy wheels wrapped in 275/30R19 and 335/25R20 Michelin Sport Cup high performance tyres. Braking comes from carbon fibre/ceramic brake units from Mov'it which weigh 15.5 kilograms less on the front axle and 10 kilograms less on the rear axle than ZO6 brakes.
The interior receives carbon fibre door panels while sections of the cockpit are covered with Alcantara. 300 different types of leather are available.
The C6.BlackforceOne starts at 190,000 euros for a complete vehicle. Production is limited to 25 vehicles. Public debut will be at the Essen Motor Show
