In our opinion the coolest car to show up at the 2014 SEMA Vegas spectacle was the 1971 Jimmie Johnson LT1 Corvette Stingray Concept. In the video above, watch the Chevrolet Performance Build Center assemble the 460HP LT1-powered Corvette for NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson in just under 35 days!

“To properly introduce their latest crate engine offering, Chevrolet Performance drew inspiration and design elements from 6-time NASCAR Champion, Jimmie Johnson, and his 1971 Corvette Sting Ray. Driven on stage by Mr. 6-time himself, the ‘71 Corvette isn’t just a typical resto-mod, beyond the LT1, Chevrolet has also added custom modern touches throughout to turn it into a serious head-turner.

Johnson’s personal car collection includes plenty of classic Chevys that are all outfitted with modern LS engines, including his daily driver, a 1949 Chevrolet Stepside Pickup. This is one of the main reasons why he jumped at the chance to work with Chevrolet Performance’s build team to assemble the first example of a classic Corvette with the Modern LT1.”

Follow through to “The Block” for the full build. Hey Chevy, how do we get you to build one of these for us?
