Emelia Hartford’s Kooks Equipped C8 Continues to Break World Records
There has been no slowing down in 2021 for Emelia Hartford as she continues to shatter performance records with her Kooks equipped C8.
Last year, Kooks Headers and Exhaust had the exciting opportunity to work with very successful Car Builder and Racing Driver, Social Media Influencer, Actress and Producer, Emelia Hartford, as she set out on a mission to craft what would be the world’s fastest C8. Ironically, when Emelia obtained her C8, she was not originally planning to modify the 1000+ horsepower machine that it currently is today.
However, the opportunity could not have been more perfectly timed as Kooks was the first automotive aftermarket company to release headers for the C8.
The Kooks C8 Super Street Series headers, Ultra-GREEN OEM connection pipes and heat shielding blankets for Ultra-GREEN connections pipes were supplied to Emelia as she and her crew began the build.
Throughout most of 2020, her and her crew documented the experience by releasing a series of YouTube videos, which included the installation of her Kooks C8 Super Street Series headers, as well as other performance upgrades like adding a twin turbo setup and testing sessions.
Luckily, Emelia was able to strike gold with her C8 by having it tested on a dyno which produced over 1000 horsepower and 942 lb-ft of torque at the wheels! Here is the video of the accomplishment. That is one fast Kooks equipped C8 you might say.
On top of that, she took her 1000+ horsepower C8 to the drag strip with the goal of breaking the ¼-mile record. To no surprise, she was able to set a new record of 9.41 seconds!
Kooks is proud to be a part of Emelia Hartford’s record-breaking C8 and is excited to see what new records her and her crew will continue to break.
