Automotive enthusiast TV show Car Crazy on Sept. 14 will feature an in-depth look at one of the most notable car collections in the world and explore the unique story of the man responsible for this dream garage.
The Lingenfelter Collection, assembled and curated by Ken Lingenfelter, owner of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, is a 40,000-square-foot building filled with a continually-evolving roster of over 200 unique and historically-significant American muscle cars, Corvettes and late-model exotics, including a Bugatti Veyron, a Lamborghini Reventon and eight Ferraris, including a 2015 LaFerrari.
The Car Crazy episode will explore the synergy between Lingenfelter’s drive to create high-performance aftermarket products and his tenacious pursuit of the world’s finest collectible automobiles. It will air on Discovery’s Velocity TV channel.
The collection’s diversity comes from Lingenfelter’s wide-ranging automotive interests and is comprised of cars he likes. Corvettes, both old and new, are an integral part of the collection, which includes a 1953 Supercharged Corvette, the first supercharged Corvette (one of two ever produced and the only one believed to still be in existence); the 1954 Duntov Test Mule, which is considered the first true high performance Corvette, and Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s new level one and level two tuned C7 Z06s.
Lingenfelter uses the collection as a venue for public tours and special events in order to generate financial support for a number of charitable organizations through The Lingenfelter Foundation, according to the company. Collection events have raised funds for breast cancer, juvenile diabetes, youth organizations and many other causes.
