Any time that you can build a relationship with a world leader such as ESCORT, it raises the overall appeal for the vehicle
West Chester, OH (PRWEB) December 7, 2008
ESCORT Inc. and Pratt and Miller have joined forces to offer the PASSPORT 9500Ci radar and laser system as a factory-installed option on the new C6RS SUPERCAR.
Powered by a Katech Performance 8.2-liter (500ci) all-aluminum small-block V-8 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. torque, the Pratt & Miller Corvette C6RS employs a purpose-built carbon fiber body to reduce weight and improve aerodynamic efficiency. A computer-controlled adjustable suspension system, center-nut forged aluminum BBS wheels with Michelin tires, and massive Brembo monobloc disc brakes enhance vehicle dynamics. A two-tone leather interior and a comprehensive sound control system produce a quiet, comfortable environment for driver and passenger.
"Any time that you can build a relationship with a world leader such as ESCORT, it raises the overall appeal for the vehicle," said Mike Atkins, Project Manager for the C6RS. "We look forward to offering this state of the art detector on our vehicles and know their owners appreciate the added protection this type of product provides.
ESCORT, an Ohio-based company, holds more than 85 percent of the radar and laser detection patents, and has won more independent third-party tests and reviews than any other brand.
"We are very excited to work with Pratt and Miller on its C6RS program," said ESCORT CEO John Larson. "The opportunity to work with one of the finest automotive engineering companies was very attractive to us. Having just launched the ultimate products for high performance cars, the PASSPORT 9500Ci custom-installed radar and laser defense system and the PASSPORT 9500ix portable detector, it seemed to be a perfect time to offer them on such a cutting edge vehicle."
