Mark Carlyle’s AtomicFusion Corvette that has set numerous world records over the years can now be in your garage, as it’s been placed up for sale – ready to go!

Carlyle is looking to step up his program with a new build and just does not have the funding to keep the world’s quickest and fastest Independent Rear Suspension car in the world. That’s where the door is open for you! The famous Corvette is completely turn key and ready to jump in the seat and be competitive. It features an all-billet 427-inch LSX small block with AllPro cylinder heads and interior parts from GRP, Ross and Callies. Turbo By Garrett supplied the twin GTX5518R turbochargers that propelled Carlyle to well over 200 miles per hour in the quarter-mile during LSX Drag Radial competition. img_6613TIAL wastegates and blowoff valves keep the boost contained and spot on the tune-ups provided from PTP Racing over the years.

An RPM TH400 transmission helps transfer the horsepower and torque through the driveline to turn the 3.40 rear gear and blast the Weld Racing wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson rubber down the track. A Big Stuff 3 system is on board to keep control of all the fuel management needs and a complete Racepak Data Systems setup with ‘every sensor in the world’ helps provide ample data.

Carlyle set numerous records, including the LSX Drag Radial record in quarter-mile competition back at the 12th Annual NMCA World Street Finals in October 2013 with an astounding 6.69 at 217 miles per hour. Later that year, he went 6.58 at 220 miles per hour during the Haltech World Cup Finals Import vs. Domestic event, on his way to winning the title in Radial vs. Modified competition. Since then, the Corvette has seen the 4.30 elapsed time range in the 1/8-mile and many more thunderous runs with IPS Motorsports colors flying proud.

One doesn’t always get the opportunity to own a game-changing race car that’s graced virtually every digital and print magazine at one time or another during its existence, so for someone out there, this is going to be quite the prized pickup.

This is your chance to own a piece of history …. and one bad hot rod!
