LOMA-Performance Press Release) PRESS RELEASE LOMA-Performance
- Corvette "C6.BlackforceOne"
The name of this vehicle
is a show in itself: C6.BlackforceOne. It is clearly reminiscent of
the legendary Boeing Air Force One of the United States president -
doubtless no accident by tuner LOMA-Performance. Yet when the
C6.BlackforceOne available in Stealth matt black, Eurofighter matt
grey and White Storm matt white (other colours on request) comes
thundering round the corner, it is soon clear that it more than
deserves its name - and has far more to offer than just an exciting
No less than two metres from outside wheel to outside wheel, the
C6.BlackforceOne is based on the "normal" Corvette (original width:
179cm) and not on a Z06 or ZR1 model. This means around ten
centimetres more on each side and creates a real masculine feel.
LOMA-Performance makes no effort to disguise the source of the
additional width - indeed clearly and stylishly displays the carbon
fibre wheel arch extensions and carbon fibre side skirts available
with or without visible screws: the ultimate racing look. LOMA has
installed a carbon fibre front lip and rear diffuser with integrated
LED reverse light alongside the extensions, also in carbon fibre.
The optional LOMA-Performance rear spoiler with a carbon fibre
finish is easy to fit and detach. Circular daytime running lights
are an eye-catching feature of the headlights. The front lip, rear
diffuser and daytime running lights are incidentally available for
all C6 Corvettes, including the Z06 and ZR1.
794 PS with bi-turbo charging
The bi-turbo engine
conversion is, however, exclusive to the C6.BlackforceOne and raises
an incredible 794 PS from the V8 engine. 675 PS still reach the rear
axle after transfer via a LOMA-Performance carbon fibre sports
clutch, highly durable carbon fibre drive shafts and an overhauled
gear unit; skilled hands are certainly needed at the wheel of the
high-speed Corvette. It should hit 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds to
furious roars from the LOMA Cup Sport Superlight exhaust unit and
reach 330km/h. "Only" 330km/h? Yes, that's right, because LOMA
believes in good acceleration in all situations rather final speed
as a status-symbol, and has adjusted the C6.BlackforceOne
A propos adjustment:
coilover suspension is fitted beneath the body to allow separate
adjustment of pressure and rebound damping. Even the stabilisers are
adjustable. An extra 8 centimetres' tread at the front and all of 14
centimetres at the rear ensure the C6 really hugs the road.
The impression of sheer
unlimited curve speed is of course also down to the Michelin Sport
Cup high performance tyres in the dimensions 275/30R19 and 335/25R20
mounted on 10 x 19 and 12 x 20-inch shining black OZ Racing
Ultraleggera HLT alloy wheels.
Racing technology for the road
install a carbon fibre/ceramic brake unit from Mov'it for brutal
deceleration to match the brutal acceleration. This is an impressive
15.5 kilograms lighter on the front axle and 10 kilograms lighter on
the rear axle than, say, ZO6 brakes.
In the interior, too,
the team headed by Managing Director Mario Radosavljevic have been
hard at work creating a great ambience with both technical and
luxury features. The door panels, for example, are finished in
carbon fibre and sections of the cockpit are covered with Alcantara.
C6.BlackforceOne customers can choose from 300 different types of
leather. The sports steering wheel - 34 centimetres in diameter with
Alcantara - is smoothed off on the underside; the refitted seats
with shoulder rests are only half as thick as their series
equivalents. Special foam ensures these ultimate sports seats are
still comfortable and great for long journeys.
All electrical functions
have been retained as has full airbag functionality.
production is strictly limited to 25 vehicles. All are numbered and
come with a full guarantee. LOMA provides an additional 12-month
guarantee for the spectacular engine tuning. The prices for a
complete vehicle start at 190,000 euros.
Those who want to experience the monster live will find it at the
Essen Motor Show from 28 November to 6 December (Hall 6, Stand 215).
