If you thought that a hybrid Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C6) is just a dream, you’d better think again as Quanta has just revealed an add-on hybrid kit for the American supercar. Still, don’t think that the Corvette Z06 is now a fuel-efficient sports car as the hybrid kit boosts the vehicle’s performances and does not improve the fuel consumption.
The Quanta Corvette QHP770 uses the same 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine developing 505 bhp (377 kW) but also a couple of YASA 750 axial flux electric motors built into the rear differential.
The motors generate 134 bhp (100 kW) and get their energy from the lithium-polymer battery pack, which has a capacity of 11.3 kW.
The battery can be recharged during driving or externally. The total output delivered by the Quanta Corvette QHP770 is 770 bhp (574 kW) and an impressive 2,034 Nm (1,500 lb-ft) of torque. With these numbers, the sports car hits 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.3 seconds and runs the quarter mile in 11.3 seconds.
