It looks just like a standard 'vette, why do they think it is a Lingenfelter? Maybe I missed the LPE emplems on it (they are usually an artistic script in near body color put down near the rocker panels on the front fender or doors).

I do not see the Lingenfelter script or anything that looks like the Lingenfelter emblem, and I watched if four more times in slow motion. All I see is the X-51 emblem on the front fender. To my knowledge the X-51 is not a Lingenfelter model (I checked to make sure). I have heard about this X-51 offered by a few dealers and assume it is either a limited edition factory upgrade (semi-Z-51 set) or a pure dealer install. You can google it and get a bunch of hits if you want - doesn't cost enough to be serious power (by that I mean, any real Lingenfelter kit/model costs $30K plus the cost of the vette).

Either way I think this is a do-it-yourself hi-perf corvette, not a Lingenfelter. On the other hand, if the car with the photographer in it is a "low 13 second car," (I assume with driver only, though, 13.5 or 13.6 with two), then this vette is behaving like a low 12 second car in its ability to accelerate (assuming the other car is trying, which I think is a reasonable assumption).

All Lingenfelter badges -- but not the one on the car in the video. That point?

I must agree with you Lee, I didn't see any "Ling" emblems, only the Z 51. I've only seen one "Ling" in real life, and then I only saw the name on the very back of the car. It was "set in" wording, like moulded into the car and in the same color as the car. Letters about 3" high and all the way across, between the tail lights.
